Just wondered what the best thing was to clean up the front grille? (late style) - I have tried back 2 black and the results are fairly disappointing to say the least.

Spray or gel?

I find a couple of thick coats of the gel is good.

What about painting it???

I am very happy with halfords own interior and exterior trim spray... spray on and wipe it til it's all covered... water repellent and makes things black again.

That's about 3 coats on Juppy last summer and it lasted for ages...

(at the time I was really dissapointed cause the first time i only put one on and it washed off the next day... Didn't realise that on old 80's black bumpers it takes afew coats:eek: )
