Just trying to help a TW member out. The cost difference between RainX and the products I listed is not that great. The performance between the two products is like night and day.

Is it greying up on you?

Black WOW works but it is rather expensive. A little goes a long way.

I have great results with Duragloss 271. It is easy to use, durable, and affordable.

I clean with Invisible Glass or Sprayway and seal with Aquapel. The Aquapel treatment last 5-6 months in my experience. Above 30mph their is no need for wipers.

You are talking some serious dough.. $1500+ for quality job.
Is it worth it to you?

You have probably already thrown this idea out, but plastidip is a decent option... It doesn't look anything like true paint, but it could be white..

I would think $1500 is a low end paint job. Changing colors involves a lot of work and time for prep. I would say the price would be closer to $4000 or $5000.

Cam any guys that work in a paint shop chime in?

Hello from Canada. I used Meguires headlight restoration kit on my 09. I followed the instructions exactly and now my headlight looks like the before picture on the front of the box. Any suggestions. Thanks

You may have to machine polish them.

My fender flares are almost white from sun-bleaching. I've used some of the common products to turn the black again but they only last about a week. What works?

If the flares are bleached almost white, you are going to need something more than 303. 303 is protects ok, but will do nothing to restore color. Check out Autogeek. I recommend staying away from Poor Boy's trim restorer as it has petroleum distallites in it.
