    Default Car-plan Black Trim Wax

    I use the above on my front skirt, fog surrounds and rear exhaust surround aswell as both front grilles... apply it evenly with a sponge, leave it for a few minutes to 'soak in' then buff it off, gives all the black plastics an 'as new' look that lasts for about 6 weeks. Its cheap and cheerful and the results are as good as some products which cost 2 or 3 times as much.

    To achieve best results:

    1. Clean all black plastics with a high power pressure washer (I use a Karcher grime blaster head) this removes all dust and debris from the 'grain' of the plastic and ensures an even result.
    2. Mask off surrounding painted areas with a low-tack decorators masking tape.... this is not strictly neccessary but prevents you having to buff the wax off your paintwork, and is a top tip if you have a lighter colour like Star Silver.
    3. Apply the black trim wax thinly and evenly using a sponge. The best applicator i have found is a chopped up halfrauds value sponge; use a small cut section, fill the sponge with trim wax to the point that when you squeeze the sponge it does not drip... As this stuff stains everything it comes into contact with I would recommend wearing a pair of latex gloves (I buy these by the 100 from Partco for about 4.00 and wear them for all car detailing to prevent finger prints and to protect my delicate hands!!! )
    4. Leave for about 5 minutes.. I'm not sure if the wax soaks in or impregnates the plastic but it seems to give a better result when left for 5-10 minutes... this gives you time to apply to all plastics at once, then go back to the begining to buff it off.
    5. Buff up and remove all masking.
    6. Stand back and admire the results!!

    To apply and buff off in intricate areas, like grilles, use a paint brush to apply (the brush should be almost dry with hardly any product on it at all) then use a second brush to buff off.

    This can be used on all black plastics, including wheel arch liners if you want to be really thorough!!!

    is this the stuff thats basically a thick black dye? if it is, ive used it before and found that it did do the job ok, but left my hands black for hours afterwards and was quite a messy job.

    As an alternative, have you tried 303 aerospace protectant? lasts for weeks and gives a nice satin sheen. Downside is it is quite expensive @ 9.00 for a normal sized squirter bottle and is mail order only.

    Yep, thats the stuff, gloves very highly recommended!!!

    I have tried products from turtlewax, autoglym and meguiars.... none give a very long lasting finish. I'll look into the Aerospace stuff Andy, but I have a full bottle of Car-plan stuff at the moment, and the last bottle lasted me 4 years!!

    As a testiment to its quality, I put 3 coats of this on my friends '94 Corsa B (on the arches which were nearly white, they had faded so much!) and 2 years later they are still very dark in colour.

    Thats just what i was going to say. When i had my 2litre corsa B i used it to keep the arch trims from fading. Did a perfect job. For some reason corsa trims have a habit of fading really quickly.

    the stuff i used at Chorley was just Autoglym Rubber care #5. It comes in 5 litre cans for about 30 but lasts for ages.
