What is the mix ratio of the paint thinner to the linseed oil?
Just out of curiosity...has someone tried to apply just the linseed oil alone without the paint thinner?

Have no tried it I used 50/50 mix between the two, heard someone say the thinner helps soak the linseed oil into the plastic better, but I have NOT tried it yet ha

I was oiling my door pins the other day with Marvel mystery oil and accidentally got some on the door cladding. After wiping it off I noticed it looked like brand new. So, I proceeded to do the entire jeep. WOW!!!! what a difference. I don't know how long it will last but its been 2 weeks and still looks new. Supposed to rain this week so we will see. P.S...it also gives your vehicle that minty fresh smell . If you have ever used mmo then you know what im talking about.

How does doing this compare to black paint/bedliner paint colorwise?

This brings your plastics back to original stock color, painting obviously makes it a different color lol

I figured I would try the stuff that I already have instead of buying other products....
Tried the ATF fluid, as one of the posters suggested with amazing results....that plastic looks exactly the same as I'm sure it once looked when it left the assembly line...
It did much better job, than the product actually designed for it (Mothers Back to Black), which is nothing short of mind boggling and it likely points to some sort of a conspiracy in the car care industry

ATF is a trick that detailers and car dealers have used for years. It will work as well as anything you can buy. Safe and easy just wipe on and wipe off. I do mine about every 3rd or 4th car wash. It works really well on cloudy headlights.

After reading most of this post.. I'm wondering if Old WD40 would do it. ''Old'' WD40 did lots of thing . I used to sell it to a TRACTOR auction. They wiped down old John Deeres with WD40 they looked great for about 30 months.
