silicone/wd40 type solution

well when i wash my truck, i usually power wash all of it. even the rocker panels. but the bed liner on there always comes out that real dry looking nasty. i have this stuff for my bike called SC1 and its a silicone based spray that 1. brings out color 2. deflects dirt easier. (SC1 is basically an expensive wd-40 if that helps) Well, i found this works real well on the bedliner but its for my bike and need to stop wasting it lol. So, anything that will give it the new/wet look?

My buddies truck came from the dealer with armor all on the bed liner. It was slick as hell tho. The way I see it is, its a bed liner who cares if it look all clean.

Pick up a bottle of Mothers Back-To-Black and see if it solves the prob.

they make silicone-based lubricants like wd-40...

LPS, CRC, and even 3n1 have silicone spray lubricants.

I've got this stuff called Adams spray glaze, its basically like a spray detailer but you spray it on everything. plastic trim, rubber, glass, paint, chrome everything. it brightens the black plastic and window trim parts. it might work for the rubber bedliner stuff too. Its a bit expensive. I won it as part of a detail package at a car show...

I like back to black as well but it doesn't last long. One rain and it is done..... Bondo has a new product (new to me) called restore black that does the same as back to black but is guaranteed to last 6 months.... I haven't tried it yet but was considering it.

Maybe you didn't follow the directions on the bottle... That's probably why you messed up. lol

Back to black will run in the rain. I found Black Wow to be much better, it actually soaks into the trim. It takes a couple applications for it to look great though.

You need to let it penetrate... Let it glaze over then buff clean... I haven't had any run problems with it yet.
