Default Mother'* Back to Black Anything Better?

Been Using on black exterior plastic etc Back to black, which is ok but wondering if anyone has a better longer lasting solution or product in mind?
I think the black trim fades greatly in sun and in the rain most stuff comes off too easily. Possibly there is a polymer solution?

Wondering if you ever found anything better than Mothers Back to Black. I actually just purchased some this morning to try it out. What I was looking for is the Renew that has been shown on TV recently. I did however see some other stuff at AutoZone from Mequiars but it was specifically for black exterior trim.

No I keep on using back to black. I did find out that it does work and last longer if u apply 2-3 coats to faded black, allow to dry a few hours, then go over top with a premium uv armorall protectant w/ two coats. Now 2 months later after car washes, rain etc and still black.

There is nothing that I know of that works better on black than Pittman Vaporwax acrylic paint conditioner.

Tried using autohaus tire shine. Worked well and last longer than back to black. You can also use Klasse all in one for plastic and rubber.

I have discovered this 3M product which is supposedly good for 6 months.
Bondo Restore Black under $10 at Wallmart...
Will have to try to find this stuff at store somewhere in Canada.

I may have to try that stuff out sometimes, the trim around my back window, and some other areas could use some sprucing up..

I hope you can find it William and give it a quick review.
It may be sometime before I find it here.
May have to ask a friend that often goes to the states to pick me some up at Wallyworld.

I don't have the extra money to pick any up this month, if they have it, as I have to pay that 104.00 for the ticket I got before I was able to get my car inspected, I will look to see if they have it the next time I go though.
