    Optiseal will work, but I wouldn't expect a ton of longevity. What about Wolfgang Exterior Trim Sealant (WETS)?

    Door jams I usually use Griot's Spray On Car Wash (Waterless wash), but I don't see why the WETS wouldn't work there too.

    I use Shine Supply Clutch on all you mentioned and its a great product, sio2 sealant. It darkens the trim nicely and is great on paint and fake chrome.

    I’m sure the sio2 sealants from Autogeek would work well and would highly recommend trying griots ceramic 3-1. I haven’t tried on trim but is stated it can.

    Yes, either product will work, both are very good products in my opinion. While neither might be optimal for plastic trim within door jambs, neither will harm either, and won't leave residues. I might opt for Wolfgang Exterior Trim Sealant for such plastic parts if they are textured. WETS also works very nice on rubber Weatherstripping. I wouldn't choose or use WETS for paint though.

    Hard to say which I like better, both great, but I might choose Ultima Paint Guard Plus. You'll enjoy using either.

    With either product, a little goes a long way. After priming an applicator with one spray, it will take about only one spray to do a door jamb, and one more spray for the door sill area. Let sit a few minutes to flash and dry some, then simply come behind with a MF Towel to wipe away any possible high spots, and excess product applied, you're done!

    Besides Doors, also great for inner Trunk and Hood Panels.

    For most non-matte grills and plastic trim I'll usually use the same LSP I've used on the rest of the car. I just use a QD spray or waterless wash on the door jams.

    My answer is

    Not really


    You're asking a LOT from a single product. The difference between the PAINTED metal for the Door Jambs is very different than the PLASTIC trim. And for any type of chrome, you need something non-abrasive.


    I would say the closet thing I could recommend that can be used on dang near anything would be a quality spray detailer like the SONAX Brilliant Shine.

    It's kind of like Franks RedHot Sauce





    It will clean, shine (or make look better), just about any surface and add a little protection. The key like any product would be to,

    Use it often
