Bumper care

So I've been using autoglym bumper care on a rear panel and I'm now not so sure it looks really great, maybe looks as though it has built up too much? I want to try a different product but want to know if I should/could strip back the autoglym that is on there?

Bumper care

If you want to try something else, you must strip it back, otherwise you don’t know what you’re testing.

If you find it patchy, try adding another coat, it sounds like the first one has absorbed unevenly.

Buff off any over application with a MF after 5-10 mins.

In addition to @Tosh above, I find the new version of their bumper care good - a small amount applied with a cut sponge and worked in, left for 10-15 mins and then wipe excess off, gives me best results on wife's motor with no residue and lasts well

Strong APC and a brush. I'd use Surfex HD at 25% dilution.
