    This will restore it. Then use 303 for maintenance.

    Have you tried the Mother B2B?

    I read this stuff leaves runs marks after a good rain.

    I used it to restore my cowling last year...it was faded, chaulky and grey. I had neglected that for years.

    Never experienced any run marks.

    I use it once a year on everything and then use the 303 for upkeep.

    I just make sure there's no excess product, drips, etc.

    Do you put it on thick, then let it sit for awhile, then wipe off the access?

    Not thick, but enough until it was absoarbed and the black was dark. Just wiped off any excess. No waiting.

    If it's really bad a repeat may be needed.

    Do you clean the plastic before Mothers B2B? If so, what do you use?

    I just wash it when I wash my truck. I treat with B2B or 303 once things dry.

    I know what your thinking, keep it simple.

    I have to do my sister, brother-in-law, uncle, plus mine vehicles plastic. Might as well get a gallon.

    I'm by no means an expert at detailing, but I try and keep my truck in decent condition as it's the 2nd most expensive thing I own (home being #1).

    I don't use fancy boutique products.

    I use it as a truck though, so I don't expect it to be perfect.

    Heck from December through April I only run it through a touchless wash as my outside faucets are shut down so they don't freeze.

    You have experience in the products were discussing. I'll take any advice I can get.

    When I try using the product I may have to tweak something to work with the vehicle at hand. At least I have some knowledge before I start using anything.

    Thanks for all the advice!

    Good looking rig. Here is a pic of my 2005 (196,000 miles) right before I sold her. 50E7E4CC-98F6-41D8-921F-537EA8CD56C6.jpg

    Silver or white were my 1st 2 pix. Didn't matter much to me which one. My 1st Taco was silver, 2nd white and current one white. I like 'em both just for the low maintenance aspect.

    Good looking rig. Did you ever have the head gasket issue?

    You lost out my friend. It's a sight to behold. The vision loss and numbness on the left side of your body after viewing it is usually temporary.......usually

    Nope. That was a trouble free truck.

    My first was silver, the 2015 was Gray, and now I have black.
