Dress Engine and Exterior Rubber, Plastic & Vinyl Surfaces
- Water-Based or Solvent-Based Dressing
- Dressing applicator
- Spray Bottle
- Microfiber Towels
- Hi-Pressure Air Cleaning Tool
STEP #1: Spray the entire engine with a water-based dressing only, using a consistent pattern to ensure even coverage. Make sure to properly apply to all pockets, crevices, and creases. It important to not use solvent-based dressings on engines.
STEP #2: Allow the engine compartment to air dry for several minutes with hood down. You can also wipe down with a cloth, but this will lead to a less gloss and it takes time. You can also use a hi-pressure air-whip tool to blow the dressing into missed areas and to aid in the drying process.
PRO TIP: Just start the engine and close the hood to allow the heat to bake the dressing onto it. Also, most water-based dressing can be diluted 50/50 bringing out the natural color of the engine parts.
STEP #3: To ensure evenness, and reduce product “run off”, spray the solvent-based dressing on a tire applicator pad.
STEP #3: Hand apply the dressing to the tires, using smooth, even strokes. Ensure the dressing is completely dry before moving the vehicle.
STEP #5: Then apply to all exterior trim.
