Re: Wipe New?

Smell-a-vision would be a great thing. Because if it smells bad, you don't step in it. I feel that most of what you see on the tube is hype anyway.
I've seen it in my local Ace, and it's super expensive {not much in the bottle}. I would approach with caution, and a lot of research.

Re: Wipe New?

Okay, it's pretty low on my list, but I was looking for a product that would polish the plastic like the 3M headlight polish kits. Something to cut through the minor scratches and shine up the faux wood a bit. Very low on my list. I still have parts sitting that I need to install. (And work on my shark, which is right behind my 4Runner for shop space.)

I just saw the stupid commercial and wondered. Thanks for the advice!

This product seems to have some good reviews at walmart.com http://www.walmart.com/ip/Wipe-New/24726536 I have to give it a try and use it on my faded engine plastic and windshild wiper cowl.

Re: Wipe New?

It has pretty bad reviews on Amazon.com. You might want to read them prior to buying.
