Trim Ultra....HELP!!

Well tried the above today for the first time and I noticed that a little goes a long way. However. Despite this heat and me thinking I was using it sparingly when applying with a sponge, it seems a little too thick like a varnish. So obviously not sparingly enough! Whats best to remove this product and try again?

I don't know if it would work but I know when I over polished the trim (white marks) I used a magic sponge.

You've learned a little goes a very long way but now you must half that amount again. You really only need the tiniest drop and rub it into the plastic. Use a piece of sponge cut up to apply it. This is not the easiest product to apply but if you take your time and do it right it will be well worth it as it will last a long time.

Can you take a picture of the area you've applied it to then we can come up with a solution. It may just need time to settle. It can look very glossy at first but after a few days when it fully cures that artificial look will go.

If you really want to remove it put some tardis on a lint free cloth and that will take it off.

Thanks Doc

Tardis is something I havent got in my arsenal yet. Only Autoglym Tar remover. However I have since snowfoamed and washed the car and it seems to of calmed a bit

Lesson learned for next time. I think the little that is needed, the 5 litres I got is gonns outlive me! I must say though it does a fine job at restoring and adfing gloss to plastics.. maybe too much gloss this time

Ah I see what you mean. It is rather heavy on there. Leave it for the time being and see how it looks in a few days. If need be we can still get it off once its fully cured and start again.
