    And if that doesn't work, try some #39 followed by a coat of #38.

    Looking at the amount of posts by Alias, I thought I would do a translation here.

    #38 is Tire & Trim Dressing Gel

    #39 is Heavy Duty Vinyl Cleaner

    Both products are in the Professional Lines and you may have a hard time locating it in your everyday Auto Parts Stores.

    In the Consumer Line of Megs Products there are:

    A Vinyl Cleaner is something that someone else on here should recommend. I don't know of any but I have been wrong before.

    As far as recommending a Trim Detailer in the Consumer Product:

    I would say: Trim Detailer by Megs (G10810). It is about $3 bucks and it works pretty well and has a cleaner in it also.

    Very informative post for a newbie, BJClarke001. Thanks. I am forced to do this job because the detailer that I went to quoted me $170.00 for exterior detail which I thought was fair and gave him the job. To my absolute surprise when I picked up my car he did not touch the bumper and when I asked why he said the exterior job does not include bumpers.I was speechless. I did not say a word I simply left. For those of you who are wondering who this detailer is...the name of the business is Detail Authority and his website is http://www.waxmycar.com/
    yeah, I was fooled by the website and the before and after pictures.

    Yeah, I would think the Gold CLass Trim Detailer, esp the liquid version (also comes in spray foam), would be an easy start.

    Alias,

    Yes, I failled on saying it was in the Gold Class Line. So that would be GOLD CLASS Trim Detailer by Megs (G10810). Thanks Murr1525.

    Also, sorry to hear about your detailer. I never heard of someone doing an exterior detail and not including the bumpers? In the olden days, we had chrome. Today, we have a mix of plastic (painted and un-painted) and no matter what, they need something.

    That is why you need to stick close to this site and learn to do all this stuff yourself (if you have the time). I can't imagine having anyone touch my vehicle. Unless of course, it was a pro detailer from on this site.
