Vinyl stripes

Post by Chalks13 » 01 Nov 2017, 09:55

Morning guys, anyone had issues with fading or blotchy stripes and getting them clean?

I’m replacing my own but the wife’s R56 has red stripes and they’ve got blotches and a bit of fading

I’ve had a look online and theres either AutoGlym or meguiars products, but unsure which to go for from their ranges

If they're vinyl (vs paint) there's nothing much that will change them - replace is a better option as per yours.
