Wipe New - Before and After - Updates to come

We've all seen it on T.V. and thought.... hhmmmmm
A quick web review will let you know that to order online is basically to at least be double charged, likely never get the product. Enter - As Seen on T.V. Store

So I grab some and think, why not.
So here you go, Before and After Wipe New. I'll try to update this as time goes on so everyone can see how long it lasts, or how quickly it fails. Enjoy!

Something to note, opening the bottle let loose a fruity smell, exactly like Tire Gloss/Shine. Wonder if thats all it is.....

I need that! Hope it lasts a while...I wouldn't mind if I had to do it once a year.

What will happen si that will slowly wear off and get patchy, not telling how long it will take. My fender flairs were coated in something similar if not the same product when i bought it. Now they are grey less than a year later except the very ends of them still hold on to some blackness.

Yes! I don't watch TV, but I saw this commercial a while back at my granny's house. As soon as I saw it, I wondered how it would do on faded flares. Then, I forgot the name and have been trying to remember it ever since

and we'll have a good test pretty soon. I plan to take the daughter to the badlands for her birthday early next month (yeah, she asked if I would take her there for her birthday, I'd never been so damn proud in all my life) so plenty of branches to scrub, mud that will need washed off, etc. So I'll be certain to keep posting back with new pictures so everyone can either see how long it will last, or how quickly it will fail since the only other reviews I've see are "My neighbors friend...." type things with no pics.

I hope its not the same stuff the dealer put on mine
the day I bought it:


about 4 months later, and I dont ever use soap on the outside of my Jeep, it was only used on the inside of the tub prior to bedlining it.


Hopefully it does what it claims but I'm apprehensive.

I've never seen any plastic "restorer" last more than a couple weeks. They also tend to bleed/ run when it rains. I'd certainly like to find something that lasts and isn't messy. (for my truck)

The bubbles in your floorboards are cracking me up!! I had to go look again to see the flares to see how they faded I was so sidetracked.
Anyway. I don't know if it will be the same or not, but before we all go mad and give this company 20 of our hard earned dollars, I just wanted to toe the line and let everyone know how it goes.
I fully suspect it will fade/run/be terrible in a month or so but I've been wrong before.... Once

1000 watt Heat Gun, that is what some detail shops use. Last about 3 months in the sun.
Just don't get too close and burn your fenders up! Google it.

Krylon fusion rattle is the best flare restorer I've researched over the years. Curious though, to see how long the posted results last.

I used it on the sails of my Avalanche and it lasted at least the month that I kept the Avalanche and the 4 months it sat on the dealer lot after I traded it in. I was pretty amazed with the stuff.

Well its been a little bit of time, its seen some mud, some rain, some sun. Here are some new pictures. I left the gravel dirt on there for about 2 weeks. I find that kind of dirt will dry and suck up products like Armor All. I had my 7 year old twin boys wash the jeep last night with Dawn Dish Soap to try to really remove the product. Of course, they are 7 so easy on the judgement of the wash job LOL. Anyway, here it is.

Before the wash.





Left out in the rain last night after the wash


And here she is this morning at work.

So thats what, about 2 months?

Not bad...

Let it go another 2 months and give us new comparison pics around the end of August.

Thanks!

Hows about an update.
This has lasted a lot longer than I would have figured. Sun, rain, some mud, kids, been washed a couple/few times.

Sorry bout the current bugs/spash marks I'll try to give her a bath right before the next update.

I think that stuff is more like a clear coat paint . My Dodge Ram's headlights look like they are pealing so I checked out some Dodge forums . The best result were after wet sanding use real clear coat paint not in a can . Then later in the same thread along came this wipe new and the people using that have had the same results as the guys who actually had a body shop spray them ad it seems to last . The problem I have is each time I go to Walmart all of the boxes are open and people stole the container of the liquid .

My nieghbor had some left over from his truck and we did one of my flares. About 4 months later still looks awsome. I think it has a thinner or something in it that melts the plastic a little and than conditions it, if that makes sense, because the texture of the plastic changes alittle kinda smooths out. I'm definitly gonna pick some up and finish the rest.

I bought this stuff that has lasted over 6 years on my car. I got it at Sherwin Williams, comes in a rattle can labeled 'Bumper Coating'. I think I paid about $10 a can. Prep it, paint it, be done it, lol. Its flexible, so it won't crack like regular rattle can paint. Can you it on rubber, plastic, metal, whatever. Goes on with a satin black finish.

So far this stuff looks promising! But I got sucked into one too many black polishes like the rest of you. Either way, good luck!

The goal was to paint them. The Mrs. and I were out and about, saw the product, and thought why not? So I'm ok if it fades/etc. Its been almost a half a year now and they still look pretty darn good so over all its been a win for me. I'll keep taking the pictures every now and then and update this post because some people might be on the fence about it. I'm just trying to provide them a real world example of what to expect if they dive in.
