I just use peanut butter as mentioned on this site. Tried Back to Black on one side and peanut butter (not crunchy)on the other and the wife or myself couldn't tell the difference.
It's been on for 2 weeks now and we fulltime in our rv and are on the Oregon coast and no change to the bumpers.

Hi,
Actually......no..
I used a cheap WalMart brand of smooth peanut butter.
I used Black to Black on one side and peanut butter on the other.
Had the wife come out and look. I didn't tell her which side was which.
She (me) couldn't tell the difference.
They lasted about the same time with the same results.

Has anyone tried any of those super-hydrophobic coatings? It would be cool to go through mud and come out clean and dry, or drive in the rain and be dry when the rain stops. I just don't know if it's as good as people claim.

The best product by far is Wipe New. I used it on my bumpers 2 months ago and they still look brand new with no fading. Amazing product and pretty inexpensive. $15 for a small bottle which can do 2 trucks.

Someone mentioned using Pledge with bee wax on your plastic elements in another thread. Looking at how much it costs and last I have to say it's a pretty good deal. Give it a go!

I just want say that 303 protectant works great on plastics and rubbers. It doesn't leave greasy residue.

Well I believe I tried everything under the FLORIDA sun and nothing lasts for more than a month.
I do wash my trucks every 2-3 weeks so I have a routine. What I use is Griot's Garage 20244 Engine Bay Dressing. This gives a nice dark luster and handle several "rain showers/sun baking/rain showers/sun baking" daily routines.

I guess the perfect test for a plastic restorer is to apply it, let it cure/bond (or whatever the term is), then dump scalding hot water on where you applied it. Do it several times with an interval in between.
