I've also used Gummi Pflege on door rubbers with pleasing results.

Default gummi

Received it and used it on Rover and MG, all the rubber on Mg is extremely old and cracked and it does seem to improve the look of it. Not much diffs on Rover.

oh dear, just read earlier post and seems shd have cleaned the rubber with white spirit first. Didnt say that on bottle, so do I need to start again?

The short answer - if you want the best result you can get - is...

Yes.

Happy cleaning

Hi Jennifer

yes the rubber does need to be cleaned first.However if the rubber on the MG is old and cracked it may work in your favour to have conditioned and softened it first as I would think more dirt will be released when you run over it with some white spirit.Won't take long to clean them off and the results will be worth it.Good luck

I think you need to bear in mind that we are applying this product to rubber that has had 20 years of British weather to contend with in some cases without any care or treatment and therefore much of the first coat will be absorbed.I gave my 45 (in the pic's) a second coat and it certainly looked better still.As previously mentioned I plan to use it every 6 months now to keep the rubber conditioned,protected and looking good.
