Can Anyone think of a snappy name for my Tyre Cleaning polish that softens, nourishes and conditions tyres as well as deep clean all the gunk off and prep the tyres for the protectant gel

Also if your looking for top tire gel, these two will be available within weeks

Permagard and Sonus are available in 236ml only but I will do a good deal for those ordering 2 or more bottles
I tried to make a better one but unfortunately I can't at this time, the tyre polish though will rock your socks

Man this stuff looks pretty good, my AU is in need of a trim shine, might have to grab some and give it a go...

Aurora 98, you mentioned a website earlier in this thread, may I ask how that's going? If you need someone to do it I'm free... PM me if your interested.

Hey Ned Kelly

We just got the website making software last week and our web builder is getting himself prepared with studying up and testing the capabilities of the software

It's highly likely that a decent site will be made very soon and a far superior revamp will be done at the end of the year when he has fully trained himself in the use of it

You will absolutely adore trim dream. Please note - the AU trims won't look the same as a BA to BF as the B series trims are a shinier material and very glassy smooth versus the grabby AU's
However the results will definately be a massive improvement

When you order, I'll throw in as a free gift, my Liquid Trims spray on shine product that is made exclusively for AU Falcons top exterior trims and B Pillar rubber strips
It repolymerizes the top exterior trims and should be used with a microfibre towel and high speed with no pressure until the black reflective look arrives from underneath

Sorry for the poor picture

No worries, it never hurts to ask. ;)

As I said in the PM, some bits are good some are really quite bad, my plan is to replace as much as possible on the doors with BA/BF trims, that just leaves the front and rear windscreens to be redone, but I'll do that when she goes in for a respray (hopefully this year some time).

Cheers.

When you say bad, do you mean that the trims are burnt like the E series or just something else

The rear windscreen trims can be done with trim dream also

Pics of this damage would be helpful

BA to BF trims become insanely glossy when trim dream is applied

Heres some pics, as you can see the car is not just filthy at the moment but it also has never seen a garage in its life. Its pretty easy to see the reason I need to replace most of if not all of the trims...

Well honestly Trim Dream by machine or aggressively by hand would fix all the damage except the dent in the left B Pillar piece

The B pillar side strips and top trims would lift back up very well with liquid trims but I reckon it is best to remove them all and replace with the B series trims so they are fresh and then give them a hard intense treatment of trim dream. One with lots of pressure and another with step 2 and 3 only using no pressure

They will be totally transformed and you will be over the moon

Cool, thanks for your opinions, I agree that new trims would be the best way to go, I'm basically restoring the car (though finding the time to do everything that needs doing is hard) so replacing the trims was always on the to to list.

The B series B pillars are better designed, they clamp the rubber window mould which stops the rubber from sagging at the top, so I'd prefer to have them on there for that reason too.

LATEST NEWS ON TRIM DREAM

Yesterday I had another brainstorming session with Trim dream and decided to find out by rotary polisher and hand if using it should be done the same way as you do with metals.

As in - for cutting - move machine right to left
to polish - move left to right

Now this time I added more of the softening and smoothening agent in step 1 and worked it at up to 2000 rpm using very fast movements with a yellow 3.5 inch foam pad and alot of driven quick spray to keep it lubricated (to stop burning)

I applied in the traditional back and forth motion but at the end the machine was slowed to 900 rpm and I did over ten left to right (one directional) movements and there was a big lift in the colour and the reflectivity of my AU's trims

So I continued with the new step 2 and 3 using the white (step 2) and black (step 3) using the one directional after one minute of normal application
Then I finished up by hand and just did dozens of one directional movements.

To my amazement, the colour, reflection clarity and overall gloss was much higher than ever before

So my advice to all current owners of trim dream, after applying for one minute with each step, finish up with several or even a dozen left to right applications

It has brought my trims so much closer to being like BA-BF trims and gotten rid of the blurry reflections

NEW INGREDIENT

I am about to receive a new ingredient from one of my suppliers.
This will be tested soon to see if it will improve the finish that trim dream provides

If so, it will be added to step 2 of Trim Dream pro for owners of rotary or orbital polisher
Pricing however will not change for the normal version
Trim dream pro will be about ten to fifteen dollars deerer than the normal version due to there being more ingredients in step 2 and 3 than the normal version and being able to achieve higher quality finish with this version

Photos of new results will be up soon (once this crappy weather clears and some more light shows up

Just tested the new V4.30 version on an ED Fairmont and the results were definately better than the V4.21 version. More colour, clearer reflections, smoother feel

Trim dream has now been colorized

Step 1 - red
Step 2 - yellow
Step 3 - Green

For those who have purchased the product, thankyou so much for your business and I look forward to proving you and your friends with the product again later this year.

You are valued by Dream Machines much more than you may think, you are everything to me and more than just a name and number.

It is no longer available to buy as it is "PATENT PENDING"
Recently applied for a patent so my legal bum is covered and it stops meguiars or any other company/manufacturer/competitor from stealing my idea/formula and releasing it themselves

Covers the product for 20 years
Pics of experimental colours are below
I can change the colours if you wish (got five different inks) and I will definately make that green much richer and nicer than that once it goes on sale again

I'm just experimenting with colours on my own batch at the moment

Pretty sure this is just the same as the bumper restoration stuff you get at you're local Autobarn. I've used it on my EF with the same results you're getting here. It's a permanant dye you apply with a sponge.

Incorrect. This is not a dye or dressing but a permanent deep cleaner and protective polish
The photos on here do not do it justice

The problem with dyes are that they can crack, give an uneven finish and doesn't give the super glassy smooth feel that this does

Gives results by machine that nothing else in the world can
Perhaps once I've patented this formula, I'll give you 25ml samples of the whole system to try on another car that hasn't got the dye on

Trust me I have used dye's and I don't like them
