Hi mate, the best gear ive used is Chemical Guys New Look Trim Gel, 11. Its amazing! It does any trim and also your tyres and you hardly use any atall. I done 4 tyres and the plastic round my wing mirrors along the bit on my rear bumper which is about 1m sq and round the hard rubber round my windows and it looks unused. Got it from NE Detailing.. Ive seen it on Ultimate Finish & Cleanyourcar.co.uk aswell.

I use silicon spray, just wipe off the excess. Looks good.

i use a bit of AG tyre dressing on a cloth and wipe over the plastic. it usually lasts for a couple of washes before needing a top up.
