How do I darken this?

What product can use to darken the outside trim on the bumper?

The Leatherique Rubber Black Dye may be a good option for you. It helps add more color to the surface. Clean the surface with a light degreaser like the Poorboy's World Bio-APC before, then apply a nice thin coating of Rubber Black. It should restore a a much darker shine to the surface.

black WOW is the best! i just tried it yesterday. you barely use any, and you go from faded to uber glossy! the small bottle will last you forever because the dressing lasts 3-4 months
