    Anyone here used Gtechniq C4 trim restorer? In the process of detailing my sister's new car (14 year old Clio) and the plastic is properly faded. A few trim dressing/coatings haven't really touched it.

    Paintwork is in a bad shape, so waiting on a heavy clay bar to arrive and then using a glaze to mask most of the swirls. Would be good to get the plastic trim looking new as well.

    This looks interesting. Apparently due for release this autumn. Cordless, blows warm air at 25 degrees above ambient, and most importantly has an air filter, so you’re not sand blasting your paint, lol. Been hoping this was in their development pipeline for a while. Bet it’s gonna cost c. 200 sheets with battery and charger though. Still could be tempted... 80432B59-6DCF-41A8-A3B5-7D84B14B3E6A.jpeg

    A few items purchased recently. Also have some BH Surfex HD and Simoniz Back to Black tyre shine on the way.

    Im almost ready to get cleaning and can't wait. My problem is I've just been browsing the detailing forum and keep seeing product recommendations! Im going to stick with what I have for now and see how I get on.[​IMG][​IMG]

    My Tenzi matt cockpit spray arrived today. Could I use this to remove marks and dirt from the nobbly trim down by where the door sill is? Or am I better of removing this with some Surfex HD perhaps?

    Cheers

    Right next question.......hahaha

    i have some of the supernatural leather cleaner and i thought that would suffice, it does a brilliant job but now i am wanting to use a leather cream to treat it one it has been cleaned. Does anyone rate the Autoglym leather cream or the gyeon stuff?

    thanks in advance.

    Good cleaner that, saved my bacon last week when the Mrs spilt a hot chocolate all over the inside of my car. Fuming!

    Anyway. I was under the impression "modern" leather doesn't require treating, as it has a sort of plastic coating over it. "Detailing Guru" on YT has a video on cleaning leather and talks about this fact.

    it’s not so much the seats. Its the steering wheel, i work in i dirty environment along with all this ****** hand sanitiser its not staying clean long but all getting mark. Thought i might be able to use a cream to help in protecting it.

    If you're after protecting use the supernatural leather sealant. Quality stuff and lasts a decent length of time, usually top up once a month on my seats and wheel.

    Bought a couple of ValetPro brushes, one soft for around badges etc. And the other a chemical resistant one for getting into the tight spots on my wheels didn’t like the one I currently had as bristles are too stiff and wouldn't get into the tight corners.

    Really miss not being able to get hold of any Zymol Cleaner Wax in the UK, used this years ago and it was brilliant. Now can only get/find expensive (OTT) Zymol waxes. Way out of my league.

    So was happy to see this from Zymol. Not a wax but a detailer spray.

    Zymol Deep Gloss Detailing Spray. Under a tenner, not bad for Zymol product.

    Dropped my karcher k2 off its storage shelf and managed to smash the inlet and outlet connectors.

    Got one of these yesterday from direct hoses. Not tried it yet but can say its very industrial and looks decent quality.

    Quick update on the Grey 7 ( Industrial ) CAR DETAILERS PACK pressure washer

    Only had a quick play with it today in-between rain storms but can deffo say that this is far far better than the k2, no surprise really given the k2 was only £38 in b&q around 6 years ago ( it was special offer, one of those when its gone its gone deals)

    Hose is decent quality, trigger gun seems more robust than the karcher.
    Decent pressure through a 20m hose, only wish I got a 30m now though and a hose reel.
    Pressure is factory set at 1.4bar, you can adjust this but feel that this us more than enough for my needs.
    Motors run fairly quiet, certainly no more noisy than the karcher.
    I've not used all the bits and pieces yet but so far so good.
