Boot polish bumper.

Post by DaveN » Sat Feb 09, 2019 5:26 pm

Just been reading on another thread (that I can’t find anymore) about the grey front bumper being dyed with cherry blossom black boot polish to make it black!
This can’t be true is it? Do people do this? Does it work? It surely must run straight back off.

Sheepy, I use the autoglym stuff and it works a treat. I’m not too bothered that it’s grey. But I read that thread thinking it surely can’t work with boot polish.

Does it darken or dye it in any way?

Over time it will darken and maintain a good shine also beads well when wet so waters just drops off
