I'm surprised at how much it changed the appearance of the car!

Nice work! I was wondering what you use on the black part of your roof rack? I used mother's back to black and it did not take that well...

Thanks,

Tricia

I tried back to black as well, it didn't work very well at first. I cleaned the plastic housings on the roof rack with windex first, and then put 2 coats of back to black on, applying as if it were a regular coat of wax, worked like a charm

Back to Black works good., though won't give long term solution. I like using 303 aerospace because it has UV protection.
