||NEW Trim Kote Plastic Restoration Dye - 16 oz. Bottles!!
Restoring faded and oxidized plastic trim on vehicles is easy to do and you can make a nice profit at it. Just like automobile paint the plastic trim will fade too. The elements from the environment will cause the plastic trim to lose its original color and become dull and nasty looking.
With our Trim Kote Plastic Dye products you can easily restore: Bumpers, mirrors, fender flares, bed liners, mud flaps, door handles, cowl vents, soft tops, windshield wiper arms even tires! One 16 oz. bottle can restore up to 800 door handles.
Always use safe release tape for masking, shop paper towels to apply dye and wear latex or nitrile gloves. If you have an auto detailing business you should carefully inspect the plastic trim on the vehicle you are about to work on and if you think that the plastic dye will make a big difference propose your restoration service to your customer.
Pricing Your Services:
For retail customers you should be able to charge $5 per door handle, $10 per mirror, $20-$30 per bumper cover, $15-$20 per fender flair, $50 for bed liners, $5 for each mud flap, $20 for cowl vents, $50 for soft tops, and $8 each for wiper arms. If multiple components on a vehicle need restored you may want to reduce your price and offer a package price of possibly 10%-15%.
You may want to offer your plastic restoration service to car dealerships. Dealerships will want wholesale pricing but will have many vehicles to do. Negotiate your best deal with car dealers; never "give away" your service once you obtain the account. Many used car lots display vehicles that have been detailed but the plastic trim was only conditioned by a tire dressing and will evaporate and the faded plastic will come back.
The only way to make plastic trim look and stay new again is by dyeing it with our platic trim dye products. Our products will not streak like many plastic dyes do and once dry will look new! The best way to obtain a used car lot as an account is to first "walk the lot" and find the worst door handles and offer the used car manager or car lot owner a free door handle restoration for one vehicle. Just restore one door handle first on the worst vehicle then show the manager the difference!
He will be impressed and you should get him as a new customer with only a few minutes of work. If you able to obtain this account the manager will want you to stop by the dealership and walk the lot at least once a week to check out the new arrivals and restore the plastic trim on those vehicles. Be sure you mention that you can restore just about any black plastic trim component.
