PostSubject: How do I clean bonnet stripes   11th August 2016, 23:09

Hey

Sounds a bit silly but I'm having trouble getting my bonnet stripes looking showroom clean

I'm cleaning them as I would the bodywork which is coming up fine but lots of marks in the stripes material

Any suggestions?
Thanks

I finish off my car and those I clean with de-ionised water which gets rid of any spotting. A detailing spray should also help remove marks. Being that your car is relatively new they should come clean quite easily.

Otherwise it maybe worth contacting Tom at TK Detailing who is a club sponsor.

I find if you put polish on you have to take it off really quickly and not leave it like you would on the car a clean cloth two if needed and buff really hard takes the marks off
Hope that helps

Or if you are ever near J3 of the M3 on a weekend or evening then let me know as I live 5mins from the junction. You could pop in and I'd gladly take a look at it for you.

Depending on condition you might be better to replace.

I had them replaced under warranty and if they look a bit on the sad side give it a try, you have nothing to lose and if replaced then you can look after them as they should be.

This is assuming they were fitted from new or by the dealer, I had no problem getting them replaced as they come under the 3 year warranty Smile
