A couple of people have asked recently about G-Techniq C4 and how it should be applied. I can confirm it's exactly the same stuff as C5 wheel armour and the process is exactly the same really.

Here's how I applied it to the arch liners on my red car:

Firstly rinse the area to be coated and squirt with a strong cleaner. Here I'm using neat APC, it's sprayed on and left to dwell for a short while to eat into the grease and grime:

Next agitate the surface with a stiff brush to release all the crud from the plastic. Rinse and repeat if necessary.

Once clean, pat dry with a MF cloth.

Next, put on some gloves, soak a lint free cloth in panel wipe and give the plastic a thorough wipe over to ensure that it is absolutely clean.

Allow the panel wipe to flash off (you can see it drying in this picture).

Then apply the C4 / C5 as usual, a small amount on the corner of a lint free cloth (I'm using a cloth instead of a pad as the surface is rough).

Lightly wipe off the surface to ensure a streak free even surface covering. Don't rub hard, just lightly wipe it in case there is any excess that needs removing.

Don't let it get wet for 12 hours and and there you have it, a renewed surface which will repel dirt and grime, be easy to clean and will look good for 12 months or more. Cool

And remember to bin the MF cloth afterwards!
