303 is pretty good. Just Once (justonce.com) is also good. It does not contain any oils or silicone, so it's not greasy like many of these types of conditioners.

I came across this thread the other day so I decided to try the heat gun method. I used a small butane torch from Harbor Freight. Once I figured out the right distance from the fender to hold the torch, I began making small dime or quarter sized circles with the flame. You can then go back over areas that need to be darkened. I applied Meguiar's Natural Shine Protectant. It's got UV blockers in it and it's not greasy when it dries.

WHAT a difference. I just purchased the Jeep and the fenders were faded and spotty. I bought the Mother's Back-to-Black and I'm impressed! Ignore the white stuff, I tried a different product and it stunk, so I removed it first with a degreaser to make sure I got it all off ebfore apply the Mother's product. The picture don't lie

How long has it been on there and how does it wear? I tried some stuff that looked great the first day, but looked horrid in 2 days.
