WOW!!!

I always think it is funny when I got wheeling to have all the tires dirty, but shine up the spare to a showroom gleam!

OP, if it makes you happy to have shiny tires, go for it. After I wash and wax my rigs, all of them get tire shine. They may not stay shiny for long, but whatever. I use Maquires.

It's like, once you start, you have to always put it on or it eventually looks grey and discolored, especially trim or bumpers with the Armoral stuff. I like it clean no matter how dirty it's supposed to get.

For trim and bumpers or anything else black or grey, you should really try Mothers Milk Back to Black....Armor All sucks IMHO. Too slippery and doesn't last that long and it attracts more dirt than anything. Oh, and don't let the 13 yo loose with it in the interior, then tell them to put it on everything. They thought it would be nice to have new looking pedals. Can anyone say DEAD? Not her, me, well almost.

I stopped using all that crap long time ago, might look good for few days then it just attracts brake dust and anything else that feels like clinging on. As for the trim, I sanded and painted, looks like new year round.

What did you use to paint the trim pieces? Did you use a bed liner spray or a regular can of paint?

I used Honda Flat Black bumper paint; for the wheel trim I sanded first, they were pretty faded and rough, but turned out nice.

Right, mine on one side are faded and feel like sandpaper..I thought it was from using too much Amoral stuff in it's earlier days..I may spray them when I repaint the rack this summer...good idea.

Forever Black works on the Fender Flares/Door handles/Rear Door opener.... Haven't tried the bumper's yet.... Make sure you sand the Flares with a fine grain of sand paper first. It took me about 4 coats and they look great.

When I detail my rovers I use Meguiars High Endurance tire shine for the tires and Aerospace 303 for all the plastic and vinyl trim. You can also use WD-40 for plastics if you can't find Aero 303.

Considering I only wash and wax my Land Rovers every 2 or 3 years, I'd have to say no.
