A real moneymaker is to approach car dealerships with your plastic trim restorer service. It’s a trade off because dealerships will probably insist on wholesale pricing, but they also have many vehicles for you to restore. Negotiate your best deal with car dealers, and never give away your service once you obtain the account. Many used car lots display vehicles that have already been detailed, but the plastic trim was probably just touched up with rubber or plastic dressing, which will eventually evaporate and the faded plastic will come back quickly. The only way we know to make plastic trim look and stay new again is by restoring it with Trim Kote. When done the plastic will look better than new!
Here’s a good way to approach used car dealers: Walk the used car lot and find the worst door handles, then offer a free restoration. When you’re done, show the used car manager your work. He or she will be impressed and you should get a new customer with only a few minutes of work. If you obtain this account, the manager will probably 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.
