Does anyone know where I can repaint faded trim (windows/body/bumper) with something permanent, that won't fade in several weeks as I've heard by reading other posts?

I used duplicolor on my car in 2004, but it is already chipping off. Just in front of the rear windshield, I scrapped, primered, repainted that metal piece (separates the windshield from the roof) and it is also cracking/chipping...any suggestions for this?

Did you sand it with a light grit sandpaper before shooting down the primer? Is it possible that you're using a primer that is incompatible with the duplicolor black paint?

Forever Black worked for me... its a permanent dye. Someone else made a good suggestion about Forever Black, take the sponge applicator off and wipe it on with a soft cloth, it will be a smoother application. Also, do multiple coats...each coat is about 10% blacker.

I'll have to take some pics to show the details.

I also used it on the rubber strip along the top of the window... mine had faded to a light gray. I put on 10 layers of Forever Black, and it looks like new again.

The only thing about forever black is that if your mouldings have gotten porous (instead of smooth) it will not make them glossy again... it will simple make them a darker black.
