Basically, Cajun, you'll apply it kind of like wax. Spread it around and just rub it in, no need to really settle, but if the satisfaction factor is higher, then let it sit lol. After that just wipe away. Just make sure the plastic is clean, and there is no large debris, just seems like it'd be a pain.

Now if your like me, you either have the chunky kind, or no peanut butter at all. It is a pain in the ass to work with all the peanuts you run into. I'd reccomend the smooth kind lol.

Even look into peanut oil! My friend and I polished up the parts on his jeep with that, worked just as good.

LOL, crunchy is all I buy, so I guess that would make great sandpaper, lol , but yeah, was thinking peanut oil would be the equivalent, without all the sticky mess, although she might not mind the honey roasted Peter Pan, lol, , I would just have to work fast if my dog is out there with me!

I'm a fan of the Mother's back-to-black myself. I used the peanut butter a few times, and found it was a bit more of a hassle than it was worth. the B2B even restored my fading bed liner on the bed rails, so bonus.

With all this talk of slathering peanut butter on the trucks, I hope none of you live in bear country.

I work in bear country, and that's why there's a pump action under the back seat loaded with buckshot and slug alternatively. So maybe peanut butter just wouldn't be a good idea for me.

Yup, Turtle wax Ice.....On Black plastic, glass, even tonneau cover works excellent.

I tried it on the paint and didn't like the results. but Plastic....Flaps, wheel wells, mirrors, etc .... perfect.
