    Question for Lowride:

    I'm planning on washing, polishing and waxing my car at the weekend (please don't rain) and I have a question I hope you can answer.

    I'm going to use Meguiars Shampoo, AutoGlym Polish and Meguiars Wax. After the polishing and waxing the plastic trim looks ****, it goes all white and is probably due to me not being very accurate while applying the wax/polish. I used back to black before, which looks good for about five minutes. So what do I use to get the plastic trim looking good?

    Also any advise for getting swirls out of a black car? Have tried everything other than the Porter-Cable thingy.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi mate,

    There is a few things that I would use for the plastic trim. I used to have a mk2 Golf and that had plastic trim everywhere
    Autoglym and Merr both sell a product just for plastic trim, I would have thought it would be for sale in Halfords. The Merr product is very good but like you say, nothing seems to last that long. It can be annoying, I think its partly down to the sun
    One trick is to use a can of silicone, I use it now and again to cover small marks, not sure how long it lasts though. I don`t think any of the products will last more than 4 days though
    My current/previous cars have both been metalic black, its so easy to pick up swirl marks. Autoglym have 'just' started selling a new polish that they claim will remove swirls, or at least help. I don`t know the exact name of it but I`ll find out 2mrw...
    Best to try the above polish before resorting to mopping your car, that would definetly help but its usually the last resort, it removes layers of lacquer!
