Gtechniq C4: How To Permanently Restore Plastic Trim
It’s an aspect of car detailing which can really take the final finish of a vehicle to the next level. You may well have the paintwork, glass and wheels all looking beautifully clean and protected, but plastic trim can often need its very own attention. Gtechniq C4 is one of the go-to products for plastic trim in need of some love and in Joe Huntley’s latest YouTube video, he shows you exactly how you can prepare surfaces ready for a coating of this super-effective product.
The subject of this detailing video is a classic Porsche Boxster and pretty much all of the trim in question was in desperate need of some refurbishment. Wing mirror surrounds, window trim, engine bay, wipers etc all providing the perfect opportunity to showcase exactly why Gtechniq C4 is quite the step up from most trim restoration products.
Gtechniq C4 – Unrivalled Durability
Assuming the necessary preparation is undertaken before applying Gtechniq C4, you can achieve up to 2 years durability on all surfaces it has been applied to. The thin, clear film quickly transforms the look of tired trim and once fully cured will not leave behind any form of sticky residue or gloss.
This sure is a satisfying watch, but don’t just take our word for it. Check out Joe’s full video below and then why not give it a try yourself if you’ve got a car of your own that needs some attention? Product links can be found below.
