Looks good...until the next time you wash your car or it rains.

Look into a more permanent solution...redye the pieces.

Quite honestly, it's a dye. It comes with a foam brush applicator. It's hard to mess up. You clean the area, tape it off, apply, let dry, apply again, until it looks uniform.

IDK if I have any pics of the actual piece.

Here's a pic of my old Volvo. I did the skirts behind the rear wheels. Keep in mind the thing was 10 years old when this was taken. 10 years old with all those years being in NE with salt thrown up on those black skirts.
