    What to use to clean up trunk/engine bay?

    I'm trying to get my car ready for a car show coming up in March 21st and am wanting to clean up my trunk and engine bay. Are there any products that would clean up the black fiberglass or should I just clean, scuff and shoot it with some sort of trim black paint?

    SEM trim black 39143 is about the perfect match. If you want it to look good, paint it.

    I prefer doing the trunk in truck bed lining. Every other D owner who has seen mine has complimented on how good it looks. Very durable too.

    If you use SEM trim black I suggest following up with one or 2 coats of SEM 1K clear in your choice of finishes...I recommend semi gloss.
