Welcome back to the Proje’ blog! Now, there’s a school of thought that says that something beautiful will stand out amongst plain looking things – a diamond in the rough, if you will. But that isn’t true with your car. If one part of it is super clean, and the rest isn’t up to the same standard, it will render the clean part completely ineffective. You’ve got to keep standards up all over your vehicle if you want to really dazzle the crowd – and feel proud of your car.

Wheels and tires are a great example of this. They are a real area of focus in auto detailing. Everyone knows that, as the parts of your car that actually touch the ground, they come into contact with the most dirt. So, we concentrate on them during a typical cleaning process. And incidentally, we have the best wheel cleaner around – check out our redline wheel cleaner for more info, then look at fusion tire dressing to see how you can complement your wheels with new-looking tires.

But if you get your wheels looking real shiny, and your tires looking black and brilliant, it can be completely undone if what’s directly above isn’t similarly shiny. Now sure, we all know about washing our cars, and our customers know about all the benefits of our vital car wash soap. But what about the oft-forgotten part of an exterior – the trim?

Step into the limelight, Alpha Trim Gel Premium Dressing. It’s the perfect solution for dazzling trim - a professional product that is easy to use and economical, so a little goes a long way, meaning that you get maximum value and maximum effect from this product. The dressing is long-lasting so you won’t have to continuously apply, and its dual action means that it not only restores, but protects against future fading, so your hard work will pay off for weeks and months to come.

The Alpha Trim Gel is thick so you won’t get any drips while you’re applying. What’s more, it dries on application, delivering immediate results and ensuring that there are no streaks or smudges on your trim. The results are long-lasting, so your trim will stay glossy and be protected from fading. Even better, our gel is water-repellent; you’ve created an effective, long-lasting protective seal that produces great results to match the blacks of your tires!

Using Alpha

First off, get everything clean and dry before use. Then, apply Alpha Trim Gel using our blue applicator pad for the best results. You will only need a small circle of gel to start with – start small and build up; you’ll be pleasantly surprised to see how far a little goes.Make sure you’ve got a nice even coverage, so that the end result will be an even color, byapplying the gel in small stages with three or four rubs per section, before moving on. The result is immediate, so you will have color to compare to as you move along your trim section.

Keep going – and keep checking.If you can see any excess residue as you go, wipe it clean using our Black Mamba 16 x 16 Wheel and Trim Towel. And then, when you’re done, step back and give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done. And admit it – having fantastic trim really complements those tires!
