For any one who's been using this product, knows it makes everything look all crisp and clean after a good wash. Now from what I've learned from years of use, being it's oil based, it hangs on to dirt and grime pretty well. This is a pic of what it currently looks like.

Mind you, I use soap and pressure washer when I wash. The bottom pic will b what dome elbow grease and a towel soaked in Invisible Glass will do for removal. The dark spot is what 5 minutes rubbing did.

Just that dark 6" section. I tried plain water but window cleaner worked better. Definitely not recommended in my opinion but a good degreaser would work better as long as it's not spray on the paint accidentally for a prolonged period of time. I'm just gonna have to make it a day venture, due to the amount of plastic the jeep obviously has

The faded parts are the actual Back to Black treated areas. Just has a lot of dirt build up. Trust me, I always used it every time I washed the jeep, which is about once or twice a month.

I never had any luck with Mothers Back to Black at all. I know it works since others have had luck but for some reason it did nothing for mine. Ended up taking a heat gun to it which took half the time to do and left my bumper solid black again instead of that milky white/black

I know this is an old thread but my .02 is that I used it on my XJ flares and didn't last more than about a month before it became blotchy. Re-applied it and same thing. Ended up using some Rustoleum Bed Liner on them and they've been good for almost two years now.

I gave my faded panels a good scrub with the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and it completely removed all oxidation. The top of my rear bumper is jet black and my fenders are like brand new. I read it on here somewhere to give it a try and it really worked great!

Based on my experience, Back to Black will last for a couple of weeks only. Right now I use 303 protectant because it offers UV protection.

Used Back to Black on a Dashboard, pretty much how long it lasted two weeks. I'll have to get in the garage and check what I use now since I no longer have a vehicle with black interior but I use it on the exterior of the Jeep as well. Its a plastic trim restore and works well. Apply every spring lasts about a whole year since my Jeep is outdoors 24/7.

When I've used it, it seems to work like a "dressing" Similar to wax, once it wears off it's the same as it ever was.

I haven't had good results with it at all. I much prefer Wipe New if you're going to just wipe a quick fix product on it.

I have used it on the door handles and the tires and it makes them really black. It looks good and doesn't give you a "Glossy Ghetto Glow" ........It doesn't last long for me......3 or 4 weeks max. I think the sun beats it up or something.

Just my experience with it.

(good-ole thread...LOL)

I put it on my Huskyliners and it made them look awesome.

But then it made them slicker than hell and the smell gave me a yuge headache. Would not recommend for that! LOL

So how long did the results last from the magic eraser??

Ya all the exterior black plastic trim tho still fades bad in the sun.
Every couple of months I get some more back to black out, with two coats again.

I did my Husky Liners with Back to black once and it gave me such a bad headache.

Best black restore product I've used is Bondo Restore black...it actually dyes trim black.

Headache? -Why the vapors/smell? I apply B2B sparingly on a small sponge.
That Bondo restore black is listing on amazon Canada site at $110....ouch.
Sounds like a good product though.

Yeah, I might have put it on too heavy but I had to scrub them clean after a day.

The Bondo stuff was like $10 last time I got it at Walmart but that was a few years ago.
