Try this stuff from Adams Polishes Adam's Super VRT Tire & Trim Dressing

This is what I use on all the black trim on my truck and it actually lasts for months on a truck that is driven daily, lives outdoors, sees plenty of rain, gets dirty and is usually washed once a week. Ive tried the Mothers back to black before I found Adams and this is much better then the Mothers.

I cant find anything that works and last. thinking about replacing the door handles, wiper cowl and rear bumper pads, since they are faded. I bought my truck this year and plan on keeping it for a long time.

try this out Coatings and Adhesives, Rubber and Plastic Coatings | Plasti Dip Interntional they also sell it at lowes for like $6 a can.

I used it on my plastic mirrors and door handles, it's held up great for 4 months so far! It's also almost the exact same color
