If you are looking to get some without ordering online, go to the link below and email the rep for your area to see who locally carries it. I emailed last night and had a supplier name and phone number in my inbox about 10 minutes later.
as far as application goes, from what I understand you scrub the parts with a degreaser like goof off or Dawn dish soap. Rinse and dry all parts. Then the Refinish Restorer goes on like wood stain. It will absorb into the pores of the plastic and restore the color.
Also from what I understand there has been no reports of this stuff running down the paint like Back to Black does. Also, some guys have had it on for 9 months plus and have had no need to reapply yet. The more you put on the glossier the parts become.
I will be picking up a can of this stuff ASAP and get this done before the snow flies. I will keep everybody here updated on my experience with this product.
I'll have to look into this stuff. I was going to Plasti-Dip spray the trim but haven't gotten around to it yet. One nice thing about those links is the MSDS is provided on the product. As with any product (chemical) there's always a risk of some sort/degree that a person should obviously be aware of and take preventative measures towards. Just to highlight a few things from that MSDS (see link for full list) -

Over this long weekend I was able to get this done. It was really easy to do and well worth the money IMO. It made a huge difference in the look and the overall finish of the plastic. It gives the plastic a nice glossy, deep black look without the greasiness of other dressing type products such as Back To Black. In fact, it rained just 2 hours after I got it done, It did not run and there are no blemishes in the finished product.
Here are some before shots of the upper cladding on my avalanche after degreasing using Dawn dish detergent.
And here some after shots, 2 days and 1 wash later. (This is 2 coats)
