Black Bumper/Roof Rail/Handles etc.

Which Cleaner really works to Stop UV Colour fading??

I've tried, Autoglym, Simoniz, Car Plan etc etc etc.

Anyone know of a Product, that REALLY keeps it Black & won't fade in Sunlight??

Cheers.

I used the Autoglym stuff and has worked so far with no fading after a month or so so far. Doesn't take long to do so not too bothered if it needs re-applying.

Evening Ben,



Autoglym is good stuff.

However, wait till the sun comes out!!

We haven't had a lot of that lately!

My point is, on the Packs it says revivor, back to black. blah blah.


What it should say is, will last until there is a bit of sunshine.

My quest is, to find one that really works & lasts for more than a bit of sunshine.


Regards

I can't find the paste on it's own £86 for the kit??


Looks good though, cheers for that.

I have heard that liquid shoe polish works well (comes in a little bottle with a foam applicator on the top) though I have never tried it myself!

Sounds good, I will check to see if we can get it here in the UK.



Thanks for the heads up.

I use tyre blacking as well, think mine might be megs. Will have to check.

Keeps it black for about 2 months then I have to do it again, which isnt too bad as only my wiper area trim, door handles and roof bars are black now.
