Tired Chrome trim, headlights and clusters? try this

Post by Welly » Mon Mar 10, 2008 12:37 pm

Hi there (again).

I'll do this one quick:

This stuff is cool:

Revive milky looking trim - see where I left that last bit there to show you the difference, all the chrome looks new now:

Scuffed trim?

No problem! PlastiX gets it off:

I did my headlights, fogs and rear clusters and they all came up super smooth and shiney 8) in fact the rear clusters came up really nice and even removed a bad scuff from them.

Recommended!!!

4 hours of cleaning so it looks all pretty, but no actual driving... Spot the D9 owner :P
