    Sure i just made this post, anywho...

    So do you guys wax first, then do the trim? Or do you do the trim first before waxing the paintwork?

    I don't want to get trim gel on my freshly waxed paintwork, but at the moment i have polish on my freshly blacked trim which makes it go a horrible swirly grey.

    Surely you don't mask the paintwork to gel the trim or vice versa??

    i suppose it's all down to being really careful on the trim. I'm a bit of a bull in a china shop type! lol.

    So no more squirting trim gell on a loose cloth! lol.

    gonna need to get myself a little trim sponge.

    I tend to just use the cheap stuff from halfords or one of the supermarkets, tends to last a week or two and is cheap as chips at £2-3.
