    Thought i'd just post up a pic and give members a heads up for a product that i've found that seems to bring tired plastics and trim back to life.
    The black, well was black but had gone a dull grey, plastic around the mirrors always seemed to let the car down after a good clean, shining paintwork and then it jumped out..... the dull grey plastic!

    Used some of THIS from our forum vendors Autobright and heres a picture of the results (used a cotton bud to get into the awkward bits by the mirror glass...

    looks good martyn, you will have to let us know how it lasts,

    i tried a few trim gels but they run off the plastic onto the paint in the rain and need re-doing every so often

    I used g-technic on mine a few months back ans it surpossed to be permanent, seems to have last well so far

    agree, ive tried so many and they all seem to run off in the rain etc...

    let us know how long this product lasts and if it runs off..
