Hi All


I own a 2004 MG TF and as all MG owners know the interior is 99.9% plastic. The colour of my plastic is a dark grey.


My question is that after 12 years the interior plastic is looking a little old. Is there a polish, treatment I can do, that can bring the plastic back to life (showroom finish) or am I the ultimate optimist?


Regards


Robert

Try giving the interior a good once-over with some baby wipes. They will shift a load of ingrained dirt which in itself will improve the look of the plastics before you consider any further conditioning. Cheap 'value' wipes wok fine.

I just wipe my plastics with a damp cloth rinsed in warm water with
a little sugar soap then I use CAR PLAN dash shine, the citrus one,
always looks good, AUTO GLYM does a great product but the car
plan is cheaper. ;)

That's right. But it would be great if you replace with a new one since after 12 years.

I realise this is an old post, but autoglym 'rubber & vinyl care' is brilliant! I've been using it for a year or so on my coupe to get a 'black' finish back on the plastics & rubber. I tried it last weekend on the girlfriends 9 year old Fiat Punto which looks like it hasnt been washed properly in a few years (plastics were grey) & it brought them back to black on just 2 applications! :) (spray once, buff off, then spray second time) :)

It is suitable for both interior & exterior - so I would give it a try if still needed.

I bought an early MG maestro (day 1 car) which had what I thought was an unusual buff interior, turned out it was grey but years of heavy smoking had given it a nice overtone.

Hi, go online look for a product called gtechniq permanent trim restorer, this stuff is expensive but I guarantee it will look like it's just come out of the showroom, it last for 3 years you can use it on interior and exterior plastic, wipe first with 50/50 isopropyl and water with a lint free cloth and then apply the gtechniq , it comes with applicators you only need a very small amount, I've used this product on customers cars and there eyes nearly fall out when they see the results, you can watch a demo on you tube. Hope this helps????
