Black plastic exterior parts and fading
I was wondering if there was anything good out there to maintain the true black color of the plastic parts on the exterior of the truck. I feel like mine is already fading (probably because of the fresh coat of linex in the bed) and I want to prevent this from happening. The door handles and the top of the bed rails seem to be fading the most, at least in my eyes. Can anything be done to prevent this?

some solutions:

Back to Black
Forever Black
303 Aerospace Protectant on your weatherstripping and black trim
Kiwi mink oil may be the best

I've used the "Back to Black" and it works fine. It lasts longer than ArmorAll too.

Another Back to Black fan here. Use it on all of the black plastic and rubber exterior parts with great results..

I've used Back to Black for the last couple of years and it does a good job. I'm using something now I found on the Chemical Guys website called VRT...It's not greasy and very easy to wipe off of the paint if you get some on it. So far, I like it better than Back to Black...We'll see

I use Miqires ultamate on everything but the glass. keeps things black and easy to wash

I'm broke until payday, and just detailed my truck. I used Maguires leather conditioner and it seemed to work really well. I don't know how long it'll last and I hope it don't hurt in in any way.
