I have. Not really sure how I feel about it. If you don't put it on evenly it will streak a bit. I had to do a couple of coats on my fenders to take care of that. Definately make you you have good venting. That stuff can make you high. Use gloves. I didn't and my hands smelled for a little while. So far for me, the Turtle Wax trim restorer seems just as good but I can't speak for length of time from an application yet. Curious to hear other thoughts.

I've read alot about this stuff 6 months ago and just havent time to try it or buy it Iwas hoping some of you would have tested it and posted results after some period of time. There are tons of products out there that do just as well the question is will they last 1 year of shine like Wipe New claims....

I have used it on my TJ.. maybe it would last a year on interior. I detail cars on the side and have an array of products. As far as the oil based wipe on stuff Turtle wax trim renew worked the best for me, as everybody has posted it doesn't last long and can leave streaks on paint. I used wipe new on my black hardtop, flares, mirrors, bumper ends and a few other parts. If you have used an "armor all" type product of your jeep make sure you clean it off real good before applying, you need to get rid of oily residue. Yes wear the gloves. You do have to put it on evenly. unlike the "armor all" type stuff, this stuff gets hard..after a day of curing. The rag will be hard the next day! You don't want to put this on if it looks like rain.
It takes about the same amount of time to put it on as the other stuff.
Mine has been on about 3 months and is starting to fade some but not to bad. I will reapply soon, but i'm pretty anal about that stuff.
I used to reapply the turtle wax about every other wash...once every 4-6 months with wipe new...I'm going with that.
I didn't do the whole top of the jeep. I wanted to see how it worked out. I will post a pic of the treated area vs the untreated.

Save your money. It is not easy to put on and down in Florida it did not last a month of rain and wheeling.

Save your money and put it to a better use. This product is a pain to use. It's extremely toxic and as mentioned above, if you overlap the application it will streak. It appears to melt the plastic rather than adding a layer of protection. It did not last a month here in Georgia either.

I just use Aerospace 303. Seems to hold up as well as can be expected in this Nevada sun and heat.

I just used Opti-Bond Tire Gel (based on someone mentioning it in another thread) since I forgot I had it and man, what a great job. Used to use 303 but this looks better IMHO and seems like it will last longer. Done with Wipenew. Ahh, the never ending search for perfection.

Glad there have been folks have gotten good results with wipe new. I made a post a few months back on this but I never did use it, my Dad used it his car as test subject and after the first day of applying it it looked really good but I guess it must have taken a little longer to dry but it started to try streaked. He did everything the instructions said to do but it still happened anyway. After seeing that I got shy about it and never applied it but I did find the best way to keep the flares black and I know it sounds crazy but I have been using this for the past 4 or 5 months now and have had zero issues using it. Peanut oil! lol. I saw this posted on another site after I did more research on it it does pull any other stuff you had on them and it makes them just as black and shinny as if they were brand new. Now like anything you use you have to stay on top of cleaning them with it but I haven't had any issue with it. What I do is I use a applicator pad you would use for applying wax, then I do all the wheel flares and let it sit on for a couple minutes I usually then move to the bumper on the front and back then go back to the flares with a microfiber towel and then start wiping it off in one direction. This will apply the oil a little more over the flare to make sure it's covered pretty well. When your done with the flares move on to the bumpers. When your done you will be amazed by how shinny and dark everything will look. Now there will be minimal projection meaning if its raining it will wash the oil off faster but generally I have found you can go several weeks like that. My jeep is garage queen so I get a little longer life off of mine. But I know some of you will think I have my head up my ass on this lol but I don't post or tell others to try it if it doesn't work for me but this has been the best thing I have found for keeping the flares a nice shinny look. ;-)

Not doubting the peanut oil thing. The thing that wouldn't work for me is the "oil" part. I would imagine it would attact and hold dirt and dust. As I said, I applied the Opti-Bond Tire Gel over a month ago and this stuff is the real deal. Also used it on my interior. Doesn't attract dust at all compared to everything else I have ever tried. Can't tell you how nice it is not to have to use my hand to wipe the layer of dust after a few days. Leaves a satin shine without being tacky. Do yourself a favor, get this stuff.

I wonder what effect the peanut oil will have on the plastic over time. If we go to the beach and want to get sun we cover ourselves in oil and we get tanned. The peanut oil would do the same thing by multiplying the UV rays.

Don't know if the comparison is accurate but it came to mind.

Do you have any squirrel problems now?

Ha ha ha no believe it or not there is no added increase of any kind of bugs or anything. I really thought there was going to be but none, but its ok my plan is to get some new flares in the near future, not that I want them to get ruined or anything. lol

I guess the only good thing about having the flares smothered is if I ever get stuck some place and I have some veggies or meat I can fry them on the flares. lmao.
