Question Which Exterior Trim Protectent do you use?

I'm tired of having to recoat the black plastic trim on my 2008 Sable every time the car gets washed.

I'm not looking for some "Seen on TV" snake oil,
But a good quality product that might last a month or Two.

Any Surggestions ?

Thanks
Jeff

Aerospace 303 Protectant...the best stuff I've found. Does not leave a greasy look and lasts. It isn't inexpensive but worth the price. They also make a cleaner, but I have not used that.

Low gloss engine paint.

All year [and better] black.

Mothers, turtlewax, etc etc, never lasts me more then 2 weeks before I'm reapplying it.

I've tried Turtle Wax Ice, it applies easily
but doesn't look good after a day or two in my experience,

I'll have to look into Back to Black

I never hear of Aerospace 303,

I was thinking of trying
Wolfgang Exterior Trim Sealant 4 oz.

but at $19.99 for 4oz it's expensive as well.

Aerospace 303 is about 20 dollars for like 28 oz. and lasts a long time, look them up on the internet, they will list places where it is available in your area. I haven't found anything that lasts longer or looks better.
