Here is another "refurbish" post.........this time it's the belt moulds.

We all have this problem:

Image

Remove the belt from the car, and spray with this great product:

Image

Once the "rubber" has dried, rub it back with 80 grit sandpaper to make it semi smooth:

Image

Add a coating of flexi prime to make the high build spray putty stick to the rubber, tape off the rear and the running edge of the belt as we done want a large build up of putty on the flexible edge.

Image

Once the putty is dry rub back with 600 grit and ensure it's smooth:

Image

Add your colour......I use satin black as the cordia has this colour......if you want it shiny just add clearcoat.

Image

Fit the mould back onto the car:

Image

I have done this with both of my cars, and years gone by they still look perfect!

Happy motoring! :)

As good as new! This is definitely up there with one of the best refurbs, simple but extremely effective aesthetically.

Did you pay an arm & leg for the Rustoleum Andrew? I've noticed varied pricing.
