What are you all using to protect the black plastic trim?
 
Hey everyone, I was washing my summit yesterday and noticed the black exterior pieces are starting to fade a bit, mainly the trim around the fenders. What are you guys using to keep it black? I am not a fan of armor all.
Thanks

I use 303 Aerospace Protectant.

The trim probably just needs a good cleaning, it shouldn't be fading yet...

I havent used anything on them whatsoever. I just clean my Jeep like normal and everything looks new. Mine is garaged kept, but regardless I couldnt imagine trim on a 2011 fading already (like sw03es said above). Even if a 2011 was kept outside in direct sunlight since it was new I dont think anything should be fading already.

But if for some reason yours really is showing its age already (sarcasm), then the product mentioned above has been very popular. I see it mentioned on the vette forums a lot as well and you know those guys are anal about their cars ;-)

My 2011 started to show signs of fading a few months back and It's garage kept and I wash every week weather permitting.
I tried Mother Back to Black and it worked great. Lasts longer than Armor All.

I use Meguiars Natural Shine Protectant. Leaves a nice matte finish and dust doesn't stick to it.

Megs Ultimate Protectant gel is one of the few Megs products I'm very pleased with. 303 will wash/run off in the first rain or next wash.

Poorboys World makes a good trim product as well. I like the quick wax and detailer they make also.

303 Aerospace is the best thing I've ever found for plastic trim, interiors and tires.

I got turtle wax on mine and was never able to get it out. I use the same plastic protector I use for the interior and it looks like new for several days.
