    Looking for some good stuff for treating the external trims
    Tried back to black (can't remember manufacturer) and it just dried grey again
    Read the detailing sticky which suggests Mequires no 38 and Poorboys trim restorer.
    Just wondering if anyone has used either or would recommend anything else please.
    Thanks.

    I've took mine off the car and am in the process of painting them red to match the car colour.

    I also thought about deleting them altogether but will see how it looks coloured first since I've gone to all the trouble painting them.

    I'd heard the interior stuff gets washed off by the rain really quickly

    Used AG vinyl and rubber care on the dash and it came up great but on the outside it looked great for around 5 seconds (till it dried) and then back to the grey

    I've just had a look through your project thread and I like the colour coded trim so will see once mines back on and if I like them I'll do the bumper bits too or if not I'll get the m tech kit instead.
