    Roof Rails and waxing?

    Hi there,

    My roof rails on my estate are a bit 'chalky' (if that makes sense) and was wondering what if there is a way of kind of waxing them? Can I wax them? Or should I use something else?

    Cheers,

    Tim

    If they're plastic/unpainted, then something like AutoGlym Bumper Care will be fine. Waxing unpainted plastic will make them even more chalky.

    i took mine off and sprayed them Gloss Black and laquered them and they look 100% better. A right pain in the arse to get off but makes a lot of difference.

    Many Thanks
