Best way to do the initial application is to get a spray bottle half alcohol half water and rub down all exterior plastics really well so they are clean and set a good undercoat. then use a foam or microfibre applicator pad to apply the gel - i find the microfibre best as you get and even spread and buff to a shine and it will then dry quickly. its important to clean the area well for the for the initial application (with the alcohol) as it will make it last ALOT longer and then you can just keep topping up when you need to onto of the base coat of gel .Good thing about Chemical Guys New Look Trim Gel is that it is water repelant, beads very well, lasts months not days and it doesnt catch all the horrid grime and dust etc like other products

Hope that helps Very Happy

Yeh I hate the winter for Trying to keep our mini's tip top

I normally give up as it's so hard & I have to go to work through country lanes

I don't think it going to for you mate :-( but we can hope - Hence why I ceased the dry slot this morn but not expecting it to last long :-(

Wish we could wrap them in cling film during this weather lol[url][/url]
