Re: (cicatrizdare)

They're stock Clavas, the 16 inchers. Color (stock) is Black Chrome, nice, eh?<p>Tom.

Re: (smartytai)

Nothing on the plastic. Meguiar's makes something, but I've never bothered.<p>Tom.

Tom, the car looks terrific. Thumbs up from my view. The NXT is about the only stuff I haven't tried either in my business or on my own car. I'll have to try it.<p>I use the P21S which is actually easier than you think...it goes on like butter but for ease of use I really like the Mother's Reflections series.

Re: Meguiar's NXT is good stuff! (Volvo Grrrr)

No issues with the Swedespeed store now - comes right up.<p>There are two decals, one with the Swedish flag colors (what I installed) and one all-gray.<p>Tom.

What do you use on your glass? I justed clayed my glass to get rid of the waterspots. Maybe RainX will help a bit.

Re: Meguiar's NXT is good stuff! (MarvynDT)

Nothing. Just Meguiar's car wash (purple goo) and a flagged-bristle brush. Whole car that way, in fact.<p>Tom.

The stuff for the plastic trim is called "Back to Black" and it's TOTALLY worth it in my opinion. Makes the trim look nice and glossy and the water beads up just like the waxed metal.

Re: (Crashy)

I found the Back-to-Black wore off after a while (couple months maybe?), then re-exposing the polish/wax.<br>I tried removing the wax with Simply Green as someone suggested but it didn't cut it.<br>Last night I tried Dawn, per Tom's suggestion above and I think that it worked well (I let it soak a bit, rubbing it with a toothbrush multiple times).<br>It was Mother's Reflection wax and their topcoat that was on my trim.
