BMW E31 RESTORING THE FRONT GRILLES
The front grilles on my
E31 were pretty badly faded:

A couple of coats later and all is lovely and waterproof again. The good thing about Teak oil is that it dries to a waterproof matt finish that never bleaches!
A couple of days later I did the air-intake grilles. As my Cuprinol had gone a bit gloopy I bought some Ronseal hardwood furniture oil instead. It worked just as well and was dry in a couple of hours. This picture shows the difference between a treated and a non-treated grille:
All done, time for a cup of tea......
