polish of trim panels

A quick "guide" on how i manged to freshen up the introure trim panels the car is from 11 and has done 145000KM and that had startede to show, so instead of getting new panels i decided to give them a polish.

First of all they where removed from the car, this can be done with a couple of trim removal tools after removal they where stripped of vent, start button etc, then given a polish using Sonax EX 04-06 polish on a white pad, then whipped of with Gyeon Prep before they where giving a coat of Poorbuys Blackhole and 2x Chemical Guys Jetseal. Im pretty pleased with the result, there are still some scratches left but the goal was never a 100% correction since some of the scratches were to deep.

Glad that my post could be help full. I guess that if you dont want to remove the panels and is polishing by hand it can be done in the car just mask everything off first. I just decided that it would be just as easy to remove it all

Good job, but kinda glad I have the aluminum finish so no need to polish that.
