Product Review of Meguiar's Ultimate Black

Just wanted to bring some attention to this particular Meguiar's product. I purchased this product at Wal Mart for $ 8.27 because I wanted something to make the black plastic trim on my 2011 pony shine. No matter how much I washed and cleaned my pony, once dried off the black bottom plastic trim always looked dull and dry. I was looking for a wet look with some shine to it.

After using this product, its absolutely amazing and a must, must, must have for anyone wanting to make their plastics, rubber pieces or vinyl shine and have that glossy wet look. I used this product on the black plastic to the side mirrors, the lower plastic trim around the car, the plastic piece that sits on the bottom portion of the front windshield and hood and even the black antenna.

The product is a tan in color cream that you place on an applicator and just rub on the plastics. You just leave the product on, air dry and it will just soak into the plastic and instant shine. In my review I give this product 10 out of 10 stars and its an amazing product. Another slam dunk for Meguiar's quality and price.

Haven't tried it, but the wet look is not what I am after. I would be looking more for factory appearance. How does this stuff look? How does it wear? Does it look blotchy over time?

It gives the plastic a nice clean shine. It seems to wear excellent and doesn't fade with rain. Absolutely no blotchy spots that I can see. If you do skip over a section of plastic you can definitely see the difference in the finish from the treated to non treated section.

I personally like a nice clean looking shine to my plastics. I'm not a fan of dull and dry looking black trim. I want my plastics and vinyl to have that fresh wet, rich look appearance. Here are some pictures of the shine, although its looks nicer and shinny in person.

Thanks! Now let's hear how the Mother's Back to Black looks and wears for a comparison of the two.

It doesn't really make it look wet. Just makes it look brand spankin new.

Sounds like the mothers back to black may be more subdue than the Meguiar's Ultimate black. I really enjoy that shinny, slick, wet look like the same look for the tires all shinned up and wet looking. Lol!

Its very easy to apply and no mess. Should some product get onto the paint , just wipe off with micro fiber towel or something similar.

Ha! Different strokes for different folks! I don't like the shiny wet tire look either! Just clean and black.

Another option is Aerospace 303. Turns my Jeep fenders back to new after a day of muddin in the crappy Florida clay mud. And lasts a long time.

+1 to 303. best product out there. Been using it for 12 years on my Tundra. I use it in the engine bay and all inside plastic. My truck still looks new.

These products are water based so they will run and look blotchy after a rain or two. Meguiar's admits that they don't have a permanent black product and that these will fade after rain.

There are dye kits to re-dye your black plastics. I have one in the garage at the moment I've yet to try. The results I've seen from it are good as you're not "clearing up" the old faded color, you're in a sense painting on new.

However, if you're looking for a clean, matte finish that will restore the black temporarily (lasted about 4 months for me) Opti-Bond Tire gel works wonders. Works great on tires and other black plastics.

I don't get any sling and a little goes a long way so you can do the proper thing coats. I personally don't like the greasy wet look on my tires or plastics so I prefer clean matte.

Most of this stuff you can't pick up at Wal-Mart, I tend to use the best products for reasonable prices I can find. I've tried Mother's back to black and it doesn't do a damn thing for mine so it's in the junk box of products I've tried lol

Wipe New. I've tried it on several of my vehicles and it seems to hold up well. Patience when applying makes a difference.
