Ya forever black works great!,<p>For some of the trim like the lower door trim, I took off the door to do. Plus it allows you to get all the trim<p>Then for the rocker molding I opened the doors and that seemed to help

i second the turtle wax "ice" polish...i only use it for the black trim and it really works great, I usually take an applicator pad but today i used some paper towels since the pad was MIA but the paper towels worked wayyy better. the ice polish is gentle on the paint so it's safe to be a bit messy to get it done quick if you have to.<p> I read here too that if you get the white residue on the trim from waxing to use a big pencil eraser to get rid of it...did that today and worked like a charm.

Re: (volvo0toS60)

Armor-dillo TS-1 completely fixes any zebra striping or haze on the black plastic and it lasts about 4 to 6 months. Its the official fix for the Chevy Avalanche and is in the service bulletin for GM. <p>I just did my S40s cladding after i ran through paint and used a grafitti remover which left the plastic chalky. I used the TS-1 and it came out beatifully, but remember to wipe it over with a damp rag to prevent any stickiness.<br>Todd

Re: (Bigblk4)

I use Turtle Wax ice for my mirror moldings. It's better to do that before you wax your car, because your better quality wax will go right over it.<p>To remove the chalky wax residue on moldings...peanut butter works, it's messy though <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (s140s)
