Interesting. That's good stuff, I've used it on a number of firearms that are at greater risk of getting banged around than the various safe-queens.

I thought you needed to bake the Cerakote on, at least with black rifles anyway.

Yea that’s what I was thinking....

This seems like a mis-use of the Cerakote name for marketing purposes.

When I first saw the post I was like “wait, do you bake your door handles in the toaster oven...?”

Are you talking about the same thing? A wipe-on product? Or are you talking about the Cerakote that is a hard finish applied by a professional licensed shop to the disassembled pieces of a firearm?

After reading the Amazon reviews it sounds interesting. One of my problems is I have permanent “mud stains” on my fenders - splatters of river muck that dried and no amount of scrubbing seems to be able to get rid of the stains.

I wonder if this product might help or make these stains even more permanent.

One reviewer commented that it streaked badly; wondering if he applied it when the surface was too warm....

The hard finish stuff, wasn't really thinking about the painfully-obvious difference when I posted.

Though I don't mind saying I'd have high expectations for anything they'd put their name on.

it would be a miracle if it got rid of the mud stains. If it did it would be well worth the price. If it makes them worse not so much . It sounds like the streaking was on smooth surfaces not the rough fender like surfaces we have.

I hit the fenders and rails and tail-lights and everything else that was black and plastic including the super faded stock hood latches.

3 weeks later it looks fantastic!!! Shiny like new. Time will tell how long it lasts.... here are a few points..

Super oxydated/faded plastic like my hood latches took 2 coats, probably could use a third.

I think it would hide those permanent mud stains if 303/armor all etc hide it.

There are a few spots where I got some on the finish paint (I didn't mask) and it almost looks like someone took clear nail polish on it, so mask if that stuff bothers you.

Time will tell but so far I am impressed! I have an 04 civic that had a super faded front license plate cover that it turned nice and black and new again.

I recommend!

They actually looked so good it made my fender liners look like old so I sprayed each wheel well liberally with 303 and the end result looks brand new all around!

was one kit enough for your fenders flares?

Yes and then some.... I hit them and the runners, mirrors, door handles, gas cap, everything I wanted to hit multiple times and still have 2/10 sealed wipes from the kit left. So far an impressive product that's fairly cheap...

Lets see how it handles the salt belted winter about to come at it!

A pressure washer takes the mud stains off the plastic. The car wash sprayer won't cut it. I use a 3200 PSI unit with a fan head.

I washed all of my black trim and then applied Mothers Back to Black. It works very well and lasts through a season. Had to be reapplied again in the spring as everything had faded.

I wonder if anyone has ever tried tire shine?????

Tire shine or any "greasy" type product leaves a film that attracts dust and dirt very badly in my experience. I don't recommend it for the textured surfaces on the Jeep.

Still looks like the day after I did it. I'm impressed every time I look at anything that was faded black plastic looks brand new. I've sprayed the inside of my wheel wells 2-3 times (for time comparison) with 303 because the fenders look so damn good makes anything not jet black look grey.

IT makes them look like you just 303'd them. But it stays like that.

I think this stuff is more like a clear-coat type effect, like a clear nailpolish....

For 20 bux someone else try it lol

While I haven't tried the wipes linked, I have tried Penetrol. The price point on a can of Penetrol really leans me that way. I was beyond amazed at how easy it was to make all my black plastic look with so little effort. Literally just wipe on, wait a few minutes, buff off extra, and let it cure.

Penetrol is the schniz. Anything that California banned must be good so I drove to Nevada a bought a lifetime supply, 2 cans for $20. 6 months later it still looks like I just put it on. The shit works.
