Grandland x sportnav plastic "pillars"

Post by Deano » Sat Aug 03, 2019 10:55 am

Just bought my Grandland X Sportnav and absolutely love it. Just one small issue ive had..the plastic "pillar" thats between the front and back door that runs from the roof to the bodywork seems to of picked up a few light swirl marks on it...its made from glossy plastic so i dare say it will continue to get light marks and scratches on it, but is there any type of polish i could use to lightly polish out the swirlies? Chees thanks

When I read the original post I'd not noticed any swirl marks on the B pillar, however can now see them. My car has only been carefully washed by myself (2 bucket method) since the Diamondbrite treatment was applied at the dealers, so the finish must be very delicate. Correction of this by hand will probably make it worse, so perhaps machine polishing/finishing is the only answer. I don't have the equipment or experience to do this, so will let it be....

I use Auto glym Aqua wax kit,this certainly gives a decrease in any swirls.
