    Then i applied Solution Finish with a high quaility paint brush so i wont get any on my trim.... but it turns out that UTTG outdid this product by far....
    And i barely used any from the bottle... unsure if i could return this.... but im gonna give them a call tomorrow... After all it is a 29.99$ product!!
    I total agreed w/ you that the UTTG easily outdid the SF. SF have the satisfaction guarantee I email the AG staff and we'll see what they say tomorrow.

    Thanks for your honest feedback. What was it about SF you didn't like?

    For decent trim I prefer UTTG as well but for faded trim I believe Solution Finish to be the best option available in it's price range.

    Well, Solution Finish stands behind their product 100% so I'm sure you'll have no problem returning it.

    I'll add one more thing... You didn't remove UTTG with Eraser or anything else because nothing removes it lol...

    But also wanted to mention solution finish has found in testing that some cleaners leave something behind that have an affect on it. They now recommend that you use alcohol or ammonia on exterior trim before applying.

    Still, nothing really removes UTTG in my experience. Of course I never used ammonia. Ron uses water spot remover to clean trim before a trim product. I've started using his method as well but never tried to remove UTTG with it. In any case if you try again use some IPA after whatever cleaner you use and before SF.

    Re: Review: Solution Finish “Brings Black Back” (Trim Restoration Product)

    Oh lol i guess i didnt remove UTTG then...
    But one thing for sure is that UTTG made my trim alot more black than Finish Solution....

    So even if i wash my car, UTTG will not come off o.O?

    And also Corey... since ur a fan of Ultima
    I have some question about UPGD and UPPP
    Are they only applied by hand? or machine?

    I didn't like it because w/ high traffic area like the running board, it wear out real quick. It looks great at first and than after cleaning the shoe prints off, the black was faded rather quickly.

    I didn't use any UTTG because i didn't have any. I got the SF first. And then i read your reviews on the UTTG, i went and order it. I got both the SF and UTTG now.

    Another thing i didn't like about the SF is the greasyness. I wiped it off really well and then let it cure over night. The next morning, it was still not smooth and doesn't glide like the UTTG.

    Given a choice again, i'll stay w/ UTTG.

    Thanks for the info on it wearing down on your running boards!

    Neither UTTG or SF is are greasy but I think you meant something else. If it was greasy something isn't right.

    You're right. It's not greasy after a few hours. However, it was greasy when i was wiping if off and remained so for a few hours. The next more it was dry and then faded pretty quickly (3-4 days)
