Bringing back black a,b and d pillar trim








Spring cleaning day for mine today. The one thing that amazes me about this car is how tidy it still actually is, when you get the grime off, for a 16 year old car.

I was getting a bit sick of my weathered looking a and d pillar trims so tried something radical today……machine polished them with autoglym super resin polish. Was surprised at the result……just thought it was worth sharing!

Hey that looks clean as a whistle. I’d have never thought of that. In the old days polish meant white residue for years on end. I treated mine with some Gtechniq C4 and that stuff is magic. Did mine a year ago and they’re still black today with a once only treatment. Bit of a leap of faith with the price to volume ratio but it bloody works. 2006 2.7 TDV6 HSE in Cairns Blue.

Thanks Steve - there was no residue which was a surprise, but it did turn the polishing pad grey pretty quickly. It was a random experiment that looks like it’s paid off, will see how long they stay shiny and black for!

This is not a wind up....but I use smooth peanut butter.......dip a cloth in a pot and apply as you would a wax, leave it for 10 mins to dry then buff up......comes up a treat and so easy......lasts a couple of months
