A finishing polish is all you need with a good microfiber. The hard thing is keeping a piano black surface scratch free.

I'll be glad when shiny black plastic is a thing of the past, like bell bottoms.

Yeah, youll be fine after about a week or so, and you realize this cheap "piano black" crap will always get scratched. I would rather have the standard, non shiny stuff, this piano black is something they threw on because its shiny.

I wouldn't put any polish on it. I think putting polish on plastic will just dull it. Polish is abrasive, and I don't think this chinsy shiny plastic would benefit from it.

I keep a microfiber cloth in my glovebox, and about once a day, just dust my dash and the black trim.

Hmmm- Maybe someone is brave enough to try refinishing it plasti dip or some other option.

Is there a type of non-latex paint that would work over the piano black? For example, could we use an autoparts store black spray car paint, and then shoot it with a dozen or so layers of clear coat?

Comments?

Krylon Matte Finish spray works really great on such things. Problem is, you have to figure out how to remove the entire piece from the car so you can spray it on. I've applied it to computer monitor bezels that were driving me crazy with reflections and it looks good! It leaves a silky black finish instead of the ugly shiny reflective look.
