I know I'm a little late to this thread but here goes - once you get the black color back, try the Meguires High Endurance tire gel. I use it on my Z24 and it lasts 6-8 weeks each time and the car is parked outside and driven daily. The fact that it's a gel is an added bonus, no drips or runs.
Ken, I actually picked up a bottle of Forever Black. Tried it in a little test area so far. Seems to work awesome, but will stain the paint if you're not careful. One of these days soon I'm going to tape off my molding and do the whole car right
Funny that you should bring this up Jay; I was just getting into my car a few minutes ago in the bright sunlight. I noticed how nice the door belt molding looked as I was getting in, and I thought about what I posted here. As far as I could tell, no one had tried it yet, or at least nobody responded with either pro or con, until now.
I thought to myself "Well, to hell with 'em. If they don't wanna try it and see how good it works, then to hell with 'em!"
Seriously though Jay, it's pretty easy to wipe the excess off if you get it on your paint. I never masked my belt molding, or any other trim pieces for that matter. I even purposely got it on the paint when I did the rubber grommet around the antenna. As a matter of fact, I was doing the weatherstripping trim where the hood seals at the rear, just above the gill panel, and accidently squeezed too hard a POURED it down the entire gill panel. Talk about panic! But I actually got every bit of it off by simply wiping it away while it was wet still. Just be sure to catch it before it dries!
Wait until you try it on the plastic interior pieces, like the pieces around the roof holders. You're gonna be amazed. And the best thing about it is the ease with which it is applied. :cool
Alright already, I'm ordering some for my Z24 tonite so Ken can stop whining:cry. Once you stop whining, Ken, tell me if the cleaner that comes w/ the Forever Black kit is really necessary. Did you use it before applying the final stuff?
For some reason that link didn't work. If it was your order confirmation page, it expired, but no problem. :cool
Did you order Item-no 52097, without the sponge ($12.99), or FOREVER BLACK TIRE GEL W/ APPLICATOR SPONGE, Item-no 52186 (also $12.99)? Either way, it's the same product. They didn't have the bed liner gel when I got my FB.
