    Default Vinyl skirts

    Anyone recommend a really good cleaner for doing the plastic/vinyl side skirts and front/back lower lips?

    Need to get them back to black, clean and shiny, some excess wax to remove from them as well.

    I use Poorboys Natural Look for these areas, looks lovely. Use it on the tyres now.
    Not too blingy or wet, just nice.

    Used to use Autoglym Vinyl & rubber cleaner and that did a good job as well but prefer my Natural Look.

    Does the Poorboys work as a cleaner too? During washing today, no matter how much scrubbing with the Megs Gold class shampoo, they still seem to come up grotty, thinking I need a special chemical cleaner of some sorts.

    they just need a good quality dressing. I use poorboys too and really rate it but in all honsty, try something like autoglym bumper gel first and see if that works.

    That's what I use, only because I bought a bag of AG stuff, but find it works well. There are possibly better ones out there, but it's a good start. It doesn't give a glossy finish (which I hate on plastic), just darkens it and gives it a sheen.

    You'll get the AG Bumper Care gel in Halfrauds if you're after it in a hurry.

    the AG gel is good for skirts etc that dont get treated very often. It soaks in and may take a few coats.

    The poorboys is a milder 'dressing' that gives a nice satin finish but i probably wouldnt waste it on soiled areas or ones that are losing their colour. Its too light for that.

    meguiars #38 tyre and trim gel is the daddy but its expensive.

    have a look at serious performance ebay shop. http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Serious-Per...toreviewQQtZkm
