Just don't even plan on painting that one! I'm about sure that stuff is full of silicone!

if it's on tv, it must be good. that's what they said on the internet anyway

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

Dang skippy........anything advertised w/ "Wait- There's more" has GOT TO BE on the up & up !! LOL!!!!!!!

Seriously, I've not used nor seen any results from the product, so I really can't factually say....... but I'm just one of those "If it's too good to be true" kinda guys.......having been in the detail biz in the past, however, I'd not believe that the results would last as long as they claim......Personally I'd not use & just save my $$$$'s to have the inner painted.............

They also sell it at Wally world. Guys on the truck forum have tried it. Mixed results so far. Worse thing about that company is they won't leave you alone after you buy it. They keep contacting you trying to sell you more chit.

If it ACTUALLY worked, it would be GREAT for vehicles like the Chevy Avalanche & all those with the black bumpers & such.......I know we used to do the old "Armor - all & buff " deal to make them look good for the sale, but they' fade after a few days...........

Guys have posted it takes almost 2 full bottles to do they Avy. I use other stuff that last about 8 months and it's $23 for a 1/2 litre can. I can get about 50 coats of it out of that one can. 2 coats in the spring and one in the fall. 2 cladded avys and one nekkid avy = about 8 coats per year. simple math for me. $23 for 6 years worth of coverage.

What product is it that you use one your Avy, OBB?
Tried the Wipe New and it looks good except for the bed covers sections.

Red Pepper/Magnetic Grey CVO with KST black 14" apes and a quick detach TP.

Product called Refinish Restorer. Made in Germany and imported. It can be found on ebay. I find it locally at a body supply store for about half the price of ebay. Bed panels take the most abuse from the sun. Top of the sail panel also but it comes back real nice.

It worked for me on the wife's jeep but what they don't tell you is you have to make sure everything is scrubbed spot less and you need a dust free environment to let it set for 24 hours after you apply it. And you will save money if you can find it local and yep unless you tell them off and threaten them they won't quit calling but after a few strong words they finally get it and the bottles are really small but it's been almost a year and it still looks good
