yeah I have used back to black on my old WJ it works pretty good, I don't know if they have ingredient lists on those products or not, I'm not sure what they use, but I definitely know for a fact this works amazing, and it's freaking easy to do lol

I'm sure you could use on any plastic really, there are parts on my boat I am thinking about trying this out on as well.

yeah let me know how it goes! Also, you don't need much, it definitely goes a long way! I think it's worth having the thinner and oil in the garage that's for sure.

here is the material safety data sheet (MSDS) on back to black
http://www.amsoil.com/msds/mothers/m...to%20black.pdf

msds on linseed oil
http://www.sciencelab.com/msds.php?msdsId=9924500

msds on acetone
http://www.sciencelab.com/msds.php?msdsId=9927062

it doesn't look like acetone or linseed oil are in back to black at all.

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!**


Can I use it on my tires? What about interior plastics and dash?

Yeah, idk if I would use that on your tires, I think the paint thinner part of the solution would be bad for the soft rubber, you can use it pretty much on any HARD plastic. It's rained a bit since I've done my plastics and it's still in good shape!

Mothers Back-to-Black, based on the MSDS (thanks StrateLOSS) is n-Butyl acetate, often used as a thinner when making lacquer, nonyl phenol 4 mole ethoxylate, an emulsifier, and morpholine, often used as fruit wax. Sounds pretty close to linseed oil and paint thinner to me.
