    confused Black trim (semi-textured) cleaner/restorer

    Well, after being a good husband and bringing my wife's Vec B back to a decent finish





    She has now changed it for a 57 reg Mini Cooper

    Well the new arrivals finish isn't too bad, but the black wheel arch and side sill trim could do with a bit of TLC. (many shades of grey)

    I've never been impressed with Carplan's Black Trim wax (leaves more on your hands than on the car ), I was wondering what is/are the best products out there ?

    Hot air gun on the trim should sort it. Supposed to bring it back to life

    The best product I have tested to get that sort of plastic back to life is called Polytrol.
    http://www.owatrol.com/products/Polytrol_pi.pdf

    For pictures, take a look at this thread from a Norwegian detailer-forum:
    http://www.detailersclub.no/forum/to...__hl__polytrol
    Quite a change in the plastic.
    Use a foam applicator or sponge to apply for best result, wipe of excessive product with a microfiber cloth and the result will last for minimum one year.
