    Mothers Back to Black: Review

    First off, the bumper on my truck was oxidized like hell. Faded and made the truck look like crap. I decided to take some time and deoxidize it. Picked up some Mothers Back to Black deoxidizer today, which is only about $5bux a pop. I only put 3coats on it so far.

    After about 3coats the visual difference is huge, just a little bit of oxidization here and there. One more coat will get rid of that, but overall this stuff works great.

    Materials:


    Before:



    Applying:



    After: (3coats and buffing)

    I tried one coat but the plastic was too far oxidized, could see it very easily still. Took two more to get rid of most of it, a 4th one tomorrow should eliminate the problem all together. I hope this doesn't come off in a months time... if it does I may have to change my opinion on this stuff.

    I used this stuff today too.. I only put on a single coat around my windows and other small plastic and plastic/rubber area's. It seemed to work decently im sure if i put more coating's of it on i would have noticed a better result, i also used the head light cleaner/polish stuff... didnt notice it doing much of anything at all though. My lights arnt hazed over or anything im probaly going to try them bolth again this weekend and use multiple coats of each. IMO the back to black is worth the buy.

    It seems to be holding up well despite what I hear from others. Has been through two downpours and it doesn't seem to be washing off.

    I'm surprised you were able to get out the store with that big "SUCKER" sign affixed to your back.

    Bro they're is other stuff on the market better then mothers, I used mothers on a few clients cars in the past and its good for the first couple of weeks then slightly fades back.

    You need to try and check out www.autogeek.net and you'll find some reviews / what you'll want vs what you won't want.

    +1, I've used it on a lot of different things, it it always fades back within a few weeks. I haven't found anything that works the way I expect a "back to black" product to.
