    Wolfgang VRP and Chemical Guys VRT

    The title should be Chemical Guys VRP , I can`t change it.


    I had some faded trim on my Focus. I had these two products. I did half of the piece with each dressing. They both look good at the start and easy to apply.

    Wolfgang Vinyl & Rubber Protectant

    Wolfgang Vinyl & Rubber Protectant

    Price for full size $24.99
    It came as part of a sample pack. If I remember there were 4 different items.
    Came in a finger pump bottle
    Had runny consistency
    I did not notice smell
    Worked well on faded trim
    Reviews 5* on two reviews

    Item Description from Autopis website:
    Penetrate, restore, and protect vinyl and rubber automotive surfaces.

    Wolfang Vinyl & Rubber Protectant is a powerful preservative for all vinyl and rubber automotive surfaces. Restore and maintain the supple, smooth texture of the dash, door panels, and console with regular applications.
    leaves a satin, non-greasy finish that looks better than new!

    Here is the left side done with Wolfgang

    It was thick consistency compared to Wolfgang.
    I did not notice a smell
    It worked well on faded trim

    Item Description from Autotopia website:
    Take your rubber and vinyl to the EXTREME!
    Provides UV protection on all rubber, vinyl and plastic surfaces.
    Dries to the touch.
    Will not sling off tires.
    The world may not be perfect, but thanks to Chemical Guys, your dressing can be. VRP DRESSING 2 is the only 100% super shine Dry to the Touch dressing that works as well on Vinyl, Rubber, Tires as it does on Hard Plastics (plastic bumpers and mirrors)......all in one.

    In a Perfect world dressings could shine, help block against UV rays, leave behind a pleasant smell, be 100% dry to the touch and even be enriched with a surface sealant to protect and repel dust and dirt for months.
    No greasy residue -100% dry to the touch!

    Here is the right side with CG VRP

    The lighter spot might be a reflection from my jeans.

    Both sides looked very similar, the sun was behind me behind the bushes. I will try to get better pictures and a update on how long they hold up.
    Thanks for reading.

    That VRP may dry to the touch but I found its low gloss to be short lived on tires. I can`t recommend it too much and I won`t be buying it again.
    Treat it like it`s the only one in the world.

    See, I enjoy CG VRP. It`s one of the few CG products I`ll still use. I like the more matte black it settles into on tires. It`s inexpensive. I don`t expect anything to last too long on tires, my big priority is whether is slings or not, and it doesn`t.

    I am getting a heavy rain here right now. It will be interesting to see if it has any effect on it. I have not detailed the trim as much as I would have liked this summer. It was pretty faded.

    Agreed. I also noticed on trim that the VRP made zero difference. Now, my trim is not faded and still in good condition. However, I would like a little shine or perhaps gloss but you couldn`t tell I ever used it. Not real happy with it.
