    Default Restorer: Trim & Weather stripping

    Does anyone have experience with DFT REVIVE? I have not been happy with several restorers I have tried, in that they do not seem to really penetrate or bring back the sheen. The trim on window sills seems to show the most weathering, yet the car is rarely in the sun for extended periods.

    My first exposure to DFT, don't know anything about it. I used Adams VRT and now use Chemical Guys VRP to treat the plastic and rubber on my cars. I wish the results would last longer too. I have always liked the way it makes the plastic and rubber look after treatment.

    Thank you for your thoughts...and btw, I still love that plane & Vette shot!

    edge-top-2-jpg This is the window edge of the windshield pillar. The discolor is not from the flash, but discoloration of the trim material. The pic below is the L side window sill. Same situation but there appears to also be some scaling. No matter what I have used so far, I still end up with this "worn out" look.
