    What is your PERL dilution for engine bay/exterior plastic?

    I'm wondering what you dilute oyurs to specifically for exterior trim and engine bay? I don't want to end up with 5 different dilutions, I already use it pure for tires and 1:5 for interior. I was wondering what dilutions you would go for for engine bay dressing and exterior trim? CarPro says 1:3 to 1:1, so I rather ask people before having to try it out myself Is 1:1 to shiny for exterior plastics? I assume 1:1 will be more durable than 1:3?

    I would use it neat or as you call it, pure.

    I agree. Use it undiluted. It won't last more than a wash diluted at 1:3.

    Interesting. I do agree using it neat on the exterior plastics could be best, especially for durability. I was just afraid the shine it would give, would be like more strong than what the original plastic looked like you know.

    I might just go with the middle ground and try 1:1 in a bottle since I like to spray my products and neat is a bit thick to spray eh? Can't wait for winter to end so I can clean the bay.

    I personally use Sonus Trim and Motor Kote for the engine bay.

    It does not have a high gloss just a nice satin/matte finish (like showroom new!)
    This has been a favorite of mine for the engine bay for quite a while.
