In this polishing tip a Volkswagen 17″ plastic hubcap is polished to improve its appearance
using Autosol Plastic Cleaner Emulsion.

Materials Used:

Instructions and Application :

  1. Take the tube of Autosol Plastic Cleaner Emulsion and squeeze eight dots of polish about 1/2 the size of a dime around the perimeter of the hubcap spokes.
  2. With a damp sponge wipe the polish evenly over the entire hubcap in a small circular pattern.
  3. Pay close attention to where scratches are and use light pressure to polish them out.
  4. Wipe off any excess polish left with a microfiber cloth, turn cloth over and buff to desired sheen.

I am sure you can see in the before and after photos that there is quite an improvement. This is a hard to find Autosol product that will keep your plastic hubcaps looking sharp.
