sarge, The rear quarter window rubbers were looking very faded. The Kiwi Polish made it look so much better.

I do not feel that this car is ready to be entered into a contest - yet. Have seen the gorgeous cars the people on this site own. Makes mine look very plain! Perhaps after i fit some decent alloy wheels and maybe a mild body kit it might be up to scratch.

Rocket.

Ive used Meguiars back to black with success. It does remove the wax and put a nice uv-resistant coating on the black surfaces. If I get any on the paint, a paper towel with quickie touchup spray wax works well to remove it.

Meguirs back to black is a good product but it fades and leavea a white residue ( ie wax). The best I've seen is the kiwi shoe polish

Stoner's Trim Shine is what I use on my black plastic trims. I gets out the wax residue as well as putting down a nice protective shine. I spray it directly on the surface with a microfibre rag to buff it in. Also I use the rag to help direct the spray by covering areas I don't want it, such as on the glass or waxed finish. Great stuff and really easy to work with.

I've used peanut butter before and it worked like a charm.

Not to bump an old(er) thread, but mlumz or anyone else who's tried, how effective is the peanut oil at trim cleaning/restoration and do you use a trim dressing afterward?

Thanks,

Fal
