Interior Trim Plastic Clean and Restore

Post by ericmci » Wed Mar 18, 2020 6:43 am


I hope everyone is staying safe.

I am about to do a deep clean of my S70 and wondering what advice you might have for a good cleaner/restorer for interior trim plastics. i.e. steering column cowl - turning indicators etc. in my car it's that grey to darker grey so looking for something other than a black restorer.

Upholstery cleaners do a great job. Cleans cargo floor, side panels and every single plastic part nicely.

Restore ... Vinyl Plastic & Carpet Dyes.
Leather seats you can get dyes for that also.
