    ...kinda faded. they are supposed to be almost black. i'm sure you know this shit is textured. should i just leave it, or is there something that would help polish it out? the fact that it's textured is what worries me about polishing it.

    the funny thing is... the pieces on the top look great, but the side parts are much more faded.

    i have already fixed a few other things on it using methods i have learned here. :love: :bowdown:

    Dress it with some 303 Aerospace Protectant, should be good to go for a while.

    Black Wow, this stuff is amazing. Going on 4 months now on my car and it still looks great

    Black WOW, or Poorboy's Trim Restorer. Neither are permanent, but they work great for what they are.

    Good 'ol Peanut Butter might help if it's polish/wax residue you're dealing with... otherwise I'd suggest Forever Black trim dye. I did the textured front bumper "grille" on a regular customer's Camaro with the stuff a couple years ago and it has looked awesome ever since.
