Does anyone know of a good product I can put on the black trim of my wagon? Ive tried a couple, Armorall ect but after a day it looks just as bad.


MVS Forum Member White850Turbo replied:

Many people have had success with cleaning the bumper very well, masking the paint off, and using a couple layers of black Kiwi shoe dye. Make sure it’s the dye and not the polish. It comes in a tall skinny container.

I just recently painted my rear bumper which had faded pretty bad. I went to an automotive paint supply store and they have many different color bumper paints. They have a paint color sheet which you can put next to your car trim to match it really close. I first cleaned my bumper off with wax and silicone remover and then taped it off and sprayed it, looks great.

MVS Forum Member l33tDad asks:

This may be a dumb question, but, is the bumper supposed to be black or grey on a ’93 850? I always thought grey, but maybe they’re REAL faded or something. I’m going to try the shoe dye trick this weekend, but don’t want to get the wrong color…
