Worth trying....Olive Oil on truck.

Recommended Posts

Bought some McQuiers' plastic trim and dashboard restorer and did the black plastic on one outside mirror and then did the other mirror using Virgin Olive oil. Let it sit for a few days in the rain and sun.

 

Olive oil out performs the McQuires by around three to one (my estimation). Even the first day revealed olive oil to do far better. It's been a week now and the olive oil is still showing the plastic like new. Anyhow it works great. You will notice the white milky, somewhat chalky look on black door trim and plastic handles will disappear in a flash. A bit oily at first, wait about a day and it tones down to a nice look. So far seems to last.

 

Currently testing olive oil on the leather seats and is acting like the leather is accepting it better and feels softer than the coconut oil  tried before.

Pictures? What's that?

Sneak in wifes kitchen cooking cupboard get Olive oil for cooking when she's not looking. Put clean cloth on top of open bottle dump upside down for a second and then wipe on plastic trim. You will be impressed.

 

Me have big challenge doing pictures.:think: Very easy to sneak around wife.

Is that Italian or Portuguese virgin or extra virgin olive oil?

The beauty of this is you can go to the Olive Garden for dinner and get your truck detailed too.  Can't do that at Chick-fil-A.

I don't know on that one Dave, but before dark, I got the wax smears gone like magic and made the rubber door trim look new with the O/O.

My truck's black like an Olive, but not Virgin with so many miles.

My truck and virgin dont go together either. But I do have a virgin front crank seal and a dry oil pan. That is is pretty awesome.

Alright, I just got home about 30 minutes ago. I oiled my bumper steps. The first one with a good spread on a paper towel and the second with what was left on said paper towel. We will see what happens.

On a side note i did this without olive oil.

Still looking for the good grill.

Looks nice Dave. Glad to see you getting your truck back in action. Try the Olive oil on the mirrors for me and see what lasts longest compared to the bumper.

 

A paper towel leaves dust and paper pieces. Old T shirts are the best.

 

Oh yeah.... you'll never get rid of your coyote troubles using the Chick Fil-a oil all the time.:USflag:

I did my bumper steps just to see what it would do. The left one I did with a fresh paper towel, the right one with the same towel but a lot the oil soaked in and I left a little piece undone just to compare. Did it last night with a flashlight and four tall boys. Got to admit it looks darn near new again.59372a5bc13bd_rearbumpersteps01.jpg.71396746fc9f81f5eeaf6c006e833ae3.jpg59372a5e3d722_rearbumpersteps02.jpg.16918aed9cf9eec88eba5e422d781d8f.jpg59372a6097cda_rearbumpersteps03.jpg.a956c803998bad0f8a3ed30f289582a5.jpg

 

Wondered why the dogs were chasing me.

Remember that video a few years back of the dogs tearing the bumper off the cop car? I think it was the chicken oil then too.

 

Update... I just wiped off what dust got on there. It came off easy and so did the dead bugs. So I'm sure it helps.

I remember that video. They went after with a passion and did not give up until it was off. Pretty darn funny.

Yeah maybe someone could find that video on U Tube. I think that cop drove up and slowed for the dogs and was the only car they ever ripped apart with an angry passion. lol
