Detailed Image doesnt carry Natural Shine. You can get it from Autopia Car Care http://www.autopia-carcare.com/natur...-dressing.html
Or Chemical Guys direct http://www.chemicalguys.com/Natural_...tvd_101_16.htm

Dont mind CGs over written descriptions on everything lol

The one that works best for me is Armor All Extreme Tire Shine Gel. Keeps 'em nice and shiney and lasts me about 3 weeks before I have to put on another coat.

I like the meguiers extreme tire shine, looks great, doesnt give that "wet" look after you wipe and it dries, and it smells like grapes!

I would just like to add to my previous comment.... the stuff I use actually lasts a lot longer than 3 weeks. I haven't touched it and it's still shiny. Granted, it doesn't look as glossy as it does during the first two weeks, but it still looks good.

Wiped my tires down with 303 protectant two days ago. Nice and matte now. Really helped with those brown areas that happen when you brush up against a curb a bit.

Matte is best. Cant stand that shiny crap.


And I tried to get picture of CG Natural Shine on Plastidip but they didnt show very well. It makes it look freshly sprayed though.
