Wow, thought my engine bay was clean until I saw yours! Looks great, what do you use on your black plastics? I use aerospace 303, but don't look that good. Dont know

I have never understood why people rave about Aerospace 303. It doesn't last and gives a very dull finish.

A job for next summer me thinks. Thumb

Well somebody had to do it and since I've spent all day 'baywatching' in St Tropez, thought I better step up to the mark.

Tried to keep my bay as clean as possible. Apologies if the snaps are too dirty and I've broke the CoC (Code of Conduct) posting photos of scantily clad people.

I agree, I bought a can to sort out the plastic trim by the windscreen wipers and found that it was hard work to get a decent finish and it didn't last. It was shiny however when I rubbed it to burnish it.

You just need a heat gun for the window trim. See my video here:
