My Linseed Oil and Paint Thinner Plastic Renewal

So, was searching forums yesterday a little bored at work ha
Found a couple saying to use 50/50 solution of Boiled Linseed Oil and Paint Thinner. Well I had a couple of antique jugs in my garage that I would never think about using, well today I had about 30 minutes of time to try this!

You need:
- Rubber Gloves (I used disposable latex shop gloves)
- 2 towels
- a bowl or jug or container to mix oil and thinner

Mix the linseed oil and the paint thinner in container and swirl around a bit to mix up, dip a little part of the towel (could use a sponge, but didn't have one), and wipe the plastic, (you can do the cladding, plastic in front of windshield, roof rack, mirrors, door handles, pretty much all plastic. Then use the 2ND towel to wipe off excess.

**BE CAREFUL BOTH ARE VERY VERY FLAMMABLE!** Don't leave rags or anything out when done!**

This made my faded out ugly looking plastic all over the jeep look pretty new again, I have heard this will stay this way for a long time, but I will updated and see for myself, PLUS THIS PROJECT COST ME $$ZEROOOO

You can though get paint thinner and boiled linseed oil at home depot/lowes.

Yeah I was pretty surprised, if I didn't have the stuff laying around in the garage I doubt I would have tried that.

I could have my jeep done and have a beer or two lol in my belly by the time it takes to do the plastic with a heat gun

Very true! The oil mixture seems to have a better effect than the heat gun.

I wonder if the store bought stuff is based off the same idea as far as the ingredients are concerned.....you know those "back to black" or the "plastic X" concoctions...
I tried the back to black and it worked reasonably well...but looking at those pics yours looks way better....

Another option that will yield like results is a paint product called Penetrol. Mines going on two years.
