Plastic restore
« on: 17 November 2023, 22:42 »
Just picked up my my 7.5 yesterday and noticed today when giving it a clean that the black trim on front bumper around fog lights is starting to fade or has some product ingrained. What’s the best solution I could try to restore to original, thanks

I know a lot of people that swear by Brant R1, I haven't tried it yet as I still use Autobrite Abyss (mostly because it's still not run out after 3 years and numerous cars)

Hi, thanks for the info. I’ve got some Maguire’s in the shed which I’m going to try tomorrow, I’ll update with results

The only product worth using is "Solution Finish" from the USA - Trust me I have tired them all, they never last more than 1-2 washes.

Solution finish lasts an easy 12 months in UK weather.
