    I've had great success getting rubber, vinyl and plastic back to it's original color by using Mother's Back-To-Black.

    It's a gel that restores the black to your non-painted surfaces. Very easy to apply, which is why I've stuck with it for a few years now. Especially helpful when I need to get wax off rubber/plastic pieces I had accidentally gotten wax on.

    Fairly cheap, plus the 8 oz. bottle will last you a while too!

    Mother's Back to Black needs to be buffed? All I do is to wipe it on, and it's good to go!

    I'll give Stoner Trim Shine a try too. Which one is more expensive?

    you're not supposed to leave it on coz it'll attract dirt... B2B doesn't clean trims, it just dresses it... it's a good product, but there are better ones... the most popular trim restorer in the US is a cleaner + dye product called Forever Black... it's the best for plastic, unpainted bumper restoration...

    Since you're in the US, I suggest you purchase them online, Stoner's Invisible Glass is also considered to be one of the best glass cleaners out there... http://www.stonersolutions.com

    I believe that they give out special offers like buy one trim shine and get 2 cans of invisible glass free, etc... Check your Motor Trend, Car and Driver and Automobile magazine ads... they usually have it there...

    Ooh, learn something new everyday!

    I have to bonk myself over the head cause it turns out I never read the instructions for the Back-to-black right! theveed, you're right, you do have to buff after applying it!

    I seem to be very fortunate that my plastic trim hasn't attracted that much dirt over the years

    Thanks for the tip! Very much appreciated! :D

    It'll work for any rubber/plastic molding. As for the price, check it out sa True Value nalang. I didn't get mine locally.
