Black Wow Trim Restorer (4oz)
A product conceived by show car detailer, Richard Lin, aka OctaneGuy and formulated by his father, a world reknowned award winning scientist.

Designed for any color exterior plastic such as on the MINI Cooper, Honda Element, Jeep Cherokee, Toyota Tacoma, and others, this gel will restore your trims natural color without use of dyes or colorants and provides a rich, long lasting look (measured in months), proven by the water beading action.

For best results, clean trim before applying Black Wow, and perform the first application just before washing your car. Remember, a little goes a LONG way with BW.

Apply a pea sized amount to the foam applicator pad and massage it into your trim. You will see an instant improvement in darkness and evenness in tone. Continue to spread this out. More is NOT better with Black Wow. Always work with pea sized amounts. The final look should be matte, not glossy and wet. There is no need to let BW dry or cure. Once applied, remove the excess with a towel or proceed to wash the car and using a wash mitt or sponge to wipe down the trim. Dry with a separate towel from the one you use to dry the paint.

Avoid getting BW on painted areas. BW won't harm your paint, but because of it's durability, it is very persistent and will require extra effort to remove off the paint. Mask adjacent areas with painters tape first if you are concerned.

Customer Comments:
I love this stuff! I was more excited to get the BW shipment than I was to get the diamond bracelet I recently won, and have officially been deemed "sick" by hubby.

I've been so loving this stuff... After 8 weeks (and weekly washings) my trim still looks fantastic and beads water like crazy. The only thing I've noticed is that I do have one very small area where the wax is showing up again - but not all the places I had wax, so perhaps it wasn't 'cleaned' as well there?

I was treated to a sneak preview/treatment at AMVIV in March... Since then have been thru rain and 3 washes and the trim still looks perfect! Just last weekend when I washed Luie the trim still beaded up like crazy, really it almost dries spotless before you can even get the waffle weave to it. Truly... love that stuff!!

Just to add some kudos to this product... when I visited (From Tennessee) OctaneGuy in LA, he let me use some of this on my black trim. That was on March 29. I then drove back to Tennessee, and have washed once or twice since then. For the past 2 weeks, I haven't been able to wash or detail my car. Although the trim does have some dirt on it, which would wash off with a good wash, it looks nice and black. I was admiring it as I walked toward it just yesterday. The stuff makes the trim look great.

So again, March 29 treatment and since then, I've only washed the car... not more treatments since then.

I did a wash this weekend... I washed the black trim as part of the overall Mystique car wash and then went around with a towel to dry it off and it still looks very good. So I haven't really reapplied any since the application at your house on March 29!

 just applied some today. got it yesterday. gotta say..it's pretty expensive i must say..i was expecting a bigger bottle.

BUT..while applying. i used VERY small amounts and it worked very well into the trim.
doesn't even look like i used any. a VERY great product..glad i finally got to ordering one.

I applied BW to Flo's trim this morning. It's pretty amazing. I used a small piece of left over upholstery foam (from a pillow project) to apply. Works great and cheaper than using commercial applicator pads. I didn't have problems with the static, but I was sparing with the sauce. I think I used only about eight drops. Let it sit for about 30 minutes, then wiped it down with a soft cotton cloth. Very nice satin finish. I like it.

Richard, I applied BW almost a week ago. We've had rain nearly every day since. The BW is really holding up. Still looks great! I'm impressed not only with the results but also how little it takes. You'll not get rich off me. I may be dead before I use all the bottle.


Notes from the inventor:

Creating a product that would restore old faded trim quickly and easily was one challenge. But it wasn't enough to just make a product that improved the look considerably. It had to make the process easier, thus the decision to include cleaners to remove old polish and wax was made. Looking at the competition, another challenge I faced was improving the durability! Manufacturers want you to keep buying product! So developing a super long lasting product isn't in their best interest. So whether it's a car wash, rain storm, or just time, most protectants on the market just don't last very long. As a professional paint polisher, I want my work to look it's best for as long as possible! Finally, Black Wow is super concentrated. You only need enough to "quench" it's thirst.

So, I've bought this product about 2-3 months ago and I have used it on many of my clients cars, and so far I've had 100% positive reviews about it. Everyone's really happy with the end results and they love the beading it produces when it rains!


Unreal Gloss!

This works wonders on my MINI. Haven't used it on faded trim yet, but it leaves a beautiful satin finish on everything else!

The best?

Probably the best trim restorer i've ever used. I recommended it.
