it works really well. I used some of the back-to-black on the scuff guards and ashtray cover and it worked pretty well, but will fade on exterior surfaces too quickly for me. I don't want to have to rework the coating every few months so a paint job was the option of choice for me. It is shiney like when you put plastic polish on it, but not too shiney that it is reflective. It didn't sand it and left the texture of the paint so that it has some texture.

Kind of off topic?,,,Ya think.

Anyway, I used mar hyde from a quart container and sprayed it on my 89 Toyota 4Runner plastic top and it looked real nice. Kinda satin finish. Looks like you can get it in a spray bottle as well. http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/e ... RNBJ51DFbl

Hey as far as the tooth brush goes, do you think a Reach Oral Rotaional Plaque remover will work? http://www.reachbrand.com/find-tool.jsp Thanks

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

I might add that the magic eraser works shockingly well for this purpose as well, I hit mine a little bit while doing my hood and it's been perfect for going on 3 months. I was surprised...
