edge trim

I was just wondering what the edge trim looks like and why so many are wanting to put it on their fx4's?

Edge trim matches the body colour instead of the FX4 with is rough plastic blackish-grey. So it looks nicer.

ok so It's glossy?! It doesnt really matter to me cause mine is black, but the previous owner pollished it and the white pollish stuck on the trim. Any ideas on how to get it off?

Ive heard worth rubber care works very well. Go to autozone and look at all the products and get one that will clean plastic/rubber. A protectant will cover it until you wash it again, but something that cleans it and it wont come back.

have you tried mothers back to black? it works pretty good for me at removing wax i have drip on the plastic. a little tip i have dont be afraid to rub hard that way the towel or whatever you choose to use can get in the grooves and pull whats on the plastic up.
