    I use Meguiar's trim its real good stuff on renewing and the blackess it leaves. best to clean suface real good, I like to apply in heat, wait and reapply it or buff it up, great for rubber vinel trim and plastic
    Meguiar's Hyper-Dressing I apply on the wheel wells, on my truck I use plastic black paint on the wheel wells which last the longest

    Armor-all works. Contrary to popular belief it's a water-based, completely safe dressing.

    Stoner's Trim Shine (I buy the bulk 5-gallons which is water-based. The areosol version is solvent based) works well too.

    303 Aerospace works great but I would get something cheaper for wheel wells. It has a high amount of UV inhibitors in it. Can be found at boating supply stores.

    I'm finding that for exterior trim, if I do not want to use a sealant, 1Z Tiefenpfleger works great. Seems to be pretty durable and has a nice look for exterior use. Only downside is its cost of $13 for 500 mL.

    Ive just recently started useing poorboys trim restorer. I think it works great. I find i have to use less product, and exert less effort then i do with any og the megs products mentioned in this thread.

    Cant speak on 303 or stoners in comaprison...never used them before. :dunno:

    The cheap-o Armor All tirefoam works great for me on the wheel wells.
