      Forever Black is a semi-permanent DYE for exterior trim and not for interiors. If your dashboard is black, then you may want to try out a small section with earbuds somewhere hidden...but i would not suggest it

      Vinyl used is in cars is funny stuff and difficult to know how it will react with a dye

      Did a little detailing on my Wife's 5 year old Activa, which was never taken care of by her..

      Now she wants a new ride..

      So i decided to detail the shit out of the Activa and make her change her mind..( In that way i will try out some products like Megs Ultimate Polish, before using them on my polo..)

      Very satisfied with the over-all results, and wifey is very happy. Pics to follow..

      waiting eagerly...hope you took some before pics also...and always good to have the Prime Minister at home happy na lol..

      Anyway UP is wonderfully rich and oily cleaner glaze...for warm colors like red,yellow etc and dark metallics, it imparts a lovely rich shine! And of course it cleans well...on painted parts, try out both UQW and OCE on separate sections and see what you like

      When you are layering, whatever gives on top will give the final looks...

      Try applying your UQW or OCW on any black plastic parts after cleaning...on steel or chrome exhaust pipe, try the UQW after cleaning...

      And avoid any wax/sealant/polish on the rubber footmats and seats...they become slippery like hell!

      - - - Updated - - -

      buy her a new ride and i will tell you how to go about application of a super sealant / coating... you will get to try something new....

      fordfan must be cursing by looking at the Formula 1 wax..I know it is the odd man out in the league of the other equipments here.
      I have ordered for Collinite 845, but have not received it yet, and so the Formula 1 wax has been used..

      1. Rinsed the scooter with a garden hose.
      2. sprayed concentrated shampoo solution ( 1 cap / 500ml ) all over the bike and let it soak for 3 minutes.
      3. Washed the bike with a mitt as explained by fordfan here
      4.After drying with MF towel, applied Meg's Ultimate Polish with a foam applicator.

      Meg's UP dries up pretty fast, so we have to wipe it off immediately or else it is a PITA to remove it. After applying wipe it with a MF towel and turn to a clean side and wipe again. Do small portion by portion..

      These are the results..

      Significant amount of scratches taken care of Meg's UP. For better results we have to use Meg's Ultimate compound i guess..
