    Any Snow pictures please?

    Been snowing here in Trentham quite heavy since lunch time,going work tonight so it will be interesting to see how the XC70 copes with the journey to Tern Hill.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    No idea what it was called,the tub was not marked with anything,he just dipped the cloth in and rubbed over the affected area and it was totally transformed, That was about 12mths ago now and after umpteen washes its never faded,in certain sunlight you can see a few swirl marks but nothing of the unsightly lacquer peel, It was only meant as a temporary cover up but as i say with the current situation my indy has spent a lot of time closed so haven,t had the chance to get it sorted with a paint job.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    We had same issue with Donnas red Audi last year,just one hand sized section on the roof which became apparent after a wash one weekend, The following week i was at my local indy and asked the paintsprayer for a quote to paint the roof,anyway he came out had a look then disappeared back into the spray shop,came back out with a small tub and a cloth and rubbed something out of the tub onto the affected area, The result was the affected area all but disappeared,he said it was laquer gel and would stop it getting worse until he could get it in, That was 12mths ago now and you still can,t see the affected area and obviously with Covid i haven,t been able to get in in to be sprayed.

    Spotted a lovely looking blue e39 tourer coming towards me on the A5 above the toll road yesterday 07/11/20, Looked spotlessly clean and making good progress.
  23. Any recomendations on what product to use on exterior black trim,the XC70 i,ve bought has lots of black plastic trim on both bumpers and all down both sides on lower doors and wings, I,ve used Autoglym exterior trim cleaner & restorer which looked great when first done but now 2 weeks on looks faded again, Any products on sale that give a longer lasting finish?

    Exterior Black Plastic Trim Cleaning

    Cheers Barry,saw your recommended stuff on Amazon through Dans link above,may get a bottle of each because it will deffo get used as the XC70 has loads of plastic trim plus i can use it on the back wings of the truck as they also suffer with fading.

    Exterior Black Plastic Trim Cleaning

    Thanks for the suggestions, Mick,that Autoglym gel is the one i,ve already got,its worked ok on the bumpers but the side trim has reverted back to a faded look after just a few weeks.
