Bowdens Own

Do you have faded, sun-damaged, grey, or just straight-up nasty-looking plastic trims on the exterior of your 4WD? Do you want to bring them back to looking like a million bucks? Bowden's Own has developed a product appropriately named Mr. Black that will restore faded trims on your 4WD back to a deep rich black finish. 



  • For rejuvenating sun-damaged, unpainted exterior plastics to a rich, dark finish
  • Ideal for bumpers, side & window trims, side mirrors, mud flaps, roof rails, running boards, door handles, wiper arms, and more
  • Restores a natural mid-sheen finish, that's not greasy or oily
  • Lasts for up to a year on most hard ABS plastic, textured trims
  • Silicone-free, so it won't wash off or attract dust once dried and cured
  • Full kit containing clothes, applicator sponges, Mr. Black 250ml, and Flash Prep 125ml


Mr. Black is perfect for restoring plastic bumpers, mirrors, door handles, running boards, grilles, wiper arms, and window trims. Mr. Black has a mild sheen just like your 4WD left the factory, It's silicone-free and long-lasting. Add this step to your next annual major detail and restore plastic trims after polishing, waxing, and protecting your paint.

Some helpful notes for getting the best finish

On extremely weathered trim, you require two coats of Mr. Black. Apply the second coat one hour after the first coat. Do not use any more flash prep or other surface prep products before you do the second coat.

When applying Mr. Black, just remember - Less is more, only apply a small amount for each subsequent section on the second coat. When you have finished your second coat of Mr. Black, make sure the trims stay dry for at least 12 hours while Mr. Black cures.

If you get Mr. Black on your skin, make sure to wash with soap and water straight after application.

Plastics must be cool to touch and free from dirt, oil, and silicones.

Use Bowden's Own flash Prep to remove any of these oils, silicones, and other waxes already embedded in the trims.

If you're in hot or humid weather, make sure you wipe Mr. Black off sooner (1-2 mins max) to achieve a more even finish.

Try not to saturate the applicator sponge or microfibre. remember, less is always more, so try to spread the product until it won't spread any more before adding more to your sponge or cloth. If you do end up getting an uneven finish, try to use less product and spread it further with your applicator.

If you get Mr. Black on your paint, headlights, or other parts of your 4WD, simply use Bowden's Own Flash Prep to remove it ASAP. If it's been on too long you may need to use the Paint Cleanse and Restore to remove it.

About Bowden's Own

Commissioning a local chemist, Bowden’s quickly discovered that the majority of these other car care brands used cheap and damaging chemicals that were no good for long-term use, some trial and error the Bowden’s finalized their first 4 products that they could trust on their prized vehicles, this ultimately lead to the launch of the Bowden’s Own brand in 2002.
