Wont hold. That stuff's more like black armor-all than a paint or coating.

It's pretty easy to just reapply every year or so - most people don't ever do anything and the rubber/plastic shit just dries out. It would dry out the same under the clear coat too, which usually does nothing against UV rays.

Same with all the small parts of the car like the windshield spray nozzles. They get all grey and old looking - but a dab of peanut butter for example brings them right back. The reason MBB is so popular is it's not as hard to clean up as a whole bumper covered in peanut butter.

If you're going to put money down on Back to Black, you might as well use the generic version of it - just rub some peanut oil into the trim and see if you like the results.

It's less messy than peanut butter, but just as effective.

You still have to wash the treated surface with soap, otherwise dust and shit will stick like crazy after using oil.

MBB is cheap

well, clear coat IS a UV protectant, thats why we do base/clear instead of single stage these days because it holds up to the sun better.
