    Evening all, I have purchased some gtechniqC4 to apply to the mini plastic trim, will the 15ml bottle I purchased be sufficient or should I have bought the 30ml bottle?

    Not used this before so unsure of the coverage!

    It is. Just make sure the trim is free from anything before applying for best results

    Brilliant stuff, used it a couple weeks ago on mine and done all the black and still got half of the 15ml bottle left and I did probably apply more than should've, small bit definitely goes a long way, just do good prep before applying.

    I definite lot agree with all of the above,
    A, itís brilliant stuff
    B, decontaminate all the surfaces you applying C4 to with either IPA or similar

    I thought My plastics were clean enough but they werenít and some of the C4 didnít stick very well. This ended with the plastics looking like they had lacquer peel after 3-4 months
    To resolve this I cleaned and cleaned again and re-applied the C4, everything sorted. One of the best products Iíve used

    Thanks for the heads up, when I do get the chance to apply Iíll clean the plastic a few times with ipa to ensure Iíve got it clean, may take longer but worth the effort Iím sure, the car had C4 applied by a chap I use to detail cars around 18 months back so itís needing freshened up now
