Well, this evening I intended to do a review on Duragloss paint products but the rain put paid to that! .... So, decided to try out the Duragloss UD on my dashboard as a little mini test.
Now, I'm quite fussy about the Volvo's interior - anything that has a hint of being shiny and used car salesman like gets binned, instantly! I've long been a fan of Poorboys Natural Look on my dash and other interior plastic and vinyl surfaces as it leaves a nice clean, matt and dry shine - no greasy, shiny, grimy mess. Perfect.
So - this new Duragloss product has a fussy bugger to please! Here's the dashboard its up against...
I tried a few ways of applying this, and my favoured was to spray a terry cloth applicator pad with is and work into the plastics and vinyl with light to medium pressure until it went nearly dry. I then buffed the area with a microfibre cloth which served to remove any smears left, or any slight shininess left.
All in all, the product was easy to use - I spent very little time at this actually (as my sister phoned asking to be picked up from work "because its raining!!"), but after just five minutes the dashboard region has been nicely cleaned up and was left with a very pleasent clean look with no nasty shine and felt quite dry to the touch... Not quite as dry feeling as Natural Look, but close, and looks as good Smell wise, well smell is always going to be very subjective, I personally quite liked it: clean, fresh and seems to be lingering quite nicely in the cab. Not overpowering, just pleasent.
The dashboard region after:
Needs a little more effort to get into tighter areas, but that'll keep me busy next time it rains.
