Carpro DLUX on faded BMW trim.

Carpro DLUX
It was too damn warm today to be motivated to do a full days detailing.
With that in mind I cracked on with a small job that's been bugging for a while.

I followed all necessary steps. Cleaned with Surfex HD, two eraser wipe downs and I think you can agree this stuff is the mutts nuts.

Before, after and arty collage pictures as follows.









Thanks for looking.

Luke

Difficult to say as I'm only at the ten hour mark
I'll update this thread through autumn and winter to keep a log
Carpro say durability is 12 months plus.

I have had it on my mother in laws car for 9 months. Still gong strong. So 12 is not wishful thinking.

Well I'm at the three month mark and it's still looking good. I believe it's estimated at 12 months durability.
