Tidying up exterior plastics

Found that Magwiers (think that's how you spell it) tyre gel is really good making wheel arches and bumper end look like new again, and its not bad on the tyres as well. Laughing

Which version of Ballistol do you use? There seems to be loads of different versions. Confused

Or do you just use the standard Universal Oil?

Tried WD40 but didn't seem to last very long, the gel stays good for a couple of weeks even in winter Thumbs Up

Have used peanut butter before and was amazed by it, lasted about 3-4 months before it started to fade again. Cheap and easy
