    Can this exterior trim be restored?

    I think it’s likely from being parked outside and exposed tot he elements... without regular washes. Is there a product that can restore its appearance? What can I try?

    I'm impressed with Cerakote Trim Coat so far on two cars I've used it on.

    The trim looks a lot like a rubber compound.

    If it is, use a dedicated rubber cleaner to purge all of the embedded contaminants and follow up with a rubber or trim restorer.

    After using a restorer, you can apply a ceramic coating to ensure it wonít happen again.
