Gtechniq C4 - RRC front spoiler

This weekend I refreshed the front-end of my 88 RRC. Mostly posting to share my discovery of Gtechniq C4 trim restorer. I painted the bumper, tow hook, and licence plate mount, and replaced the headlight washers and grille. But, the front spoiler is the same piece... I just cleaned it and used Gtechnic C4 on it. Everyone should buy this stuff for plastic trim pieces. It is clear and works on colored parts too. I have no affiliation with them, but was just thrilled about the results because I couldn't find a new spoiler without all the vents that the later model years have. I can't believe they used rivets to attach the plastic spoiler. Looking at the pictures, I see that I failed to fasten one fog light, put the grill emblem on one row too low and didn't put one of the bumper corners back on... lots of beers by the time I was (almost) done I guess.

That's what I thought too. I bought a 30ml bottle and have used it on the front spoiler, d-pillars, mirrors and a few other bits and still have 2/3rds of the bottle left.
