    Forever Black: Any good?

    I see this Forever black advertised for both trim AND tires and wondered if it works and is any good. I have a BMW X5 and it has a lot of black trim. I wonder if you could use this then Zaino?
    Hey, keep smiling, tomorrow will be a better day...

    Never tried it on tires, but works great on trim

    It's a dye for restoring the trim, and it works great. If you've got the "normal" black plastic body trim and it's still in decent shape, you might just wipe it down with Zaino Z16 - that seems to work well on our vehicles (with black trim).

    Bret and I tried out the Forever Black on his Saab back in October; I'd love to hear how it's doing, but last I'd heard it was still holding up strong.

    If you do use it, becareful as it is a dye, and it's a tad on the runny side - spill some on your driveway and it'll be there for a while. :-)

    Re: Steve, have you ever tried...

    ...shoe polish as a dye and then "sealed" it with zaino, klasse, etc?
    it looked to me, like the forever was just a black dye like shoe polish.
    looks like ANOTHER experiment:)

    Re: oopps! i meant to say...

    ...under the sealer polish, etc.
    if you dawned the areas to be treated, applied shoe polish, buffed in as many coats as needed, let dry overnight, then applied a "sealer".
    i have not tried it yet,
    whatcha think?

    shoe polish oils would still be there

    I believe most polishes are a wax/oil base - would take a while to evaporate out, I believe. Perfect reason to do a test, though - keep us informed as I'm commenting strictly on theory.
