Tried new treatment for the black bits

Post by GRNSHRK »

This stuff came as a suggestion from one of the attendees that came from Oregon last year to PSF, so I thought I'd pick some up and give it a try :-k

It's called Solution Finish, and while it takes a bit to apply and wipe off, etc., I do like the results =D>

Looks like it's time to deal with those pesky stone chips as well ](*,)

I wish the previous owner(s) of my E30 had used something like that instead of semi-gloss black paint. :(

Looks good Bobbo. Is it an oil?

BTW - typical "easy restoration" to spray paint those headlight grills. I prefer greying and old to spray paint

Hey Ralph, sorry for the late reply :-$

It doesn't appear to have an oil like feel to it, but it is a black colored liquid that soaks in and/or dries within a minute or 2 :-k

You do have to wipe off the excess with a clean cloth and of course, remove anything that got onto the painted surfaces or brightwork [-X

Overall, I'm pleased so far =D>

I was using tire gel previously, and while it's very shiny, it also remains sticky to the touch :-"
