Hi, best stuff to use is autoglym. The pro car cleaners use it. Anything by them is top notch.

Autoglym make a number of good products, however they are outshone by many other manufacturers. They're plastic and vinyl care for example isn't up to much in my book.

Believe it or not, the best enhancers for plastic trim I have found are peanut butter and ground nut oil. Going sparingly and it brings things up a treat. With a decent wax you can then seal in the shine without leaving white marks. If you must use a 'product', try some Sonus Total Eclipse.

Hi guys.

There are quite a few products out there that do the job. But it really depends on the finish you want.

Autoglym rubber & vynal cleaner is perfect for the out of showroom look. With out the gloss look.
Then there is Autoglym Bumper Care. More of a glossy finish product.

Then, your better but more expensive products are DoDo Juice, Poorboys to name but a few.

If you have a look on our site, everything you will need is there. All though, not all the dodo products are listed yet, as we are waiting for a delivery.

Hope that helps.
All the best
Nick

My trim is covered in white polish marks, especially the strips on the roof :(
Any one got a good way of removing these marks for good?, or am i stuck with them :(

I have tried Megs Trim detailer but have found its pretty rubbish as runs when it rains.

Ground nut oil - I have a separate detailing brush for it. Dab on, wipe of excess, job's a good'un.

I use Chemical Guys New Look Trim Gel on my car, it seems to last for ever and you only need to apply a tiny amount!
