Hi Mate

I had a search I bought it from Ebay and was recommended from a friend on detailing world a good few years ago now and seems to have stopped trading

But Autobrite has there own trim dye and has really great reviews I have not tried it but for a Tenner it's worth a shot

Sorry I'm not more help

After the Service the Phoenix needed a good deep engine bay clean

So next day I set about giving it a good deep engine clean with a selection of products and brushes along with a great blow dryer Aeolus Cyclone TD901T that has been best bit of kit I own drys a well protected car without even touching it

Finished with a good amount of Aerospace 303 and then wiped dry as I hate the bling shiny look it gives and just attracts so much dust

Pic's pics........... Can you Spot the Pic BOMBER!!!!!!!!!

Wow what a week so busy so not spent to much time on the Rise of the Phoenix.......

But today a massive big shout out to (Russ) Cossie1 on here he done all the CSL Rev matching with the inertia updates and the 255 CSL software on the SMG ecu along with loads of extra's as I am super greedy lol lol!

He was amazing from start to finish and telling me along with showing me everything he was doing and in simple terms for me as I am very simple lol lol!

Only had a short blast and fantastic in just a 10-15min drive car felt and went so well, smooth and sharp at the same time a instant transformation can not recommend this enough to anyone and he was truly fantastic throughout
