Believe it or not, Meguiar's High Endurance Tire Gloss works great and lastes for months. The trick is to apply it sparingly and wipe it off completely using several paper shop towels (the blue ones from Kragen/Pep Boys.etc.) until the surface is as dry as you can make it. It retores the black color without coating the hose. It does not produce an overly glossy finish, despite the name. It also does not seem to act as a dust/grime magnet.71-467rat said:I would like some suggestions on what to use on radiator hoses and heater hoses to make them look new . I have tried Armor all and it looks streakie, thanks for the input!
Hmmmmm................RT66Z06 said:To really get them looking good use tire cleaner (be careful, the stuff is corrosive, put a balled-up towel under the hose) first to remove the layer of oxydized rubber. Then apply the Meguiar's.
The hoses are rubber which explains why products designed for vinyl do not penetrate and look less than satisfactory afterwards.
Just bought some.Havent used any yet,but heard it was good.Can you use it on the dash? I think I need leather conditioner for the seats though,right?:huh:stevenll said:303 Aerospace Protectant works great on hoses. Makes them look new with a dull gloss finish.
Thanks,I'm thinking I may find Zymol & Lexol(?) in some area auto stores,but has anyone seen Zaino? Probly have to order that-I know its expensive stuff.I'm eventually going to try a clay bar too,before cruisin weather hits.stilcrazee said::agree: Zymol or Luxall (I think that's how it is spelled) If you are into Zaino products they make a leather cleaner/conditioner that will leave a new leather smell.
