Yes I did, but they are on the other computer due to a technical error, and it's been a busy week. But there was a surprise result. shifty.gif

Both seem to perform well, however the biggest difference was that the Mothers comes out of the bottle like water and application is very messy and difficult. The Meguiars is a nice thick paste.

Comparing them back to back, the Meguiars has noticably better results (not to say the Mothers is bad) which may be because of the easier application. I will be continuing to use the Meguiars when the Mothers has been used up.

Also I'd like to say that unpainted bumper suck more than Latino's boyfriend. It's the hardest part of the Corolla to get looking respectable.

Pics don't really show much unfortunately.

I'm probably going to replace some of the fading black chrome on my Spyder this coming spring/summer....the harsh winters and excessive driving has put a heavy beating on my car. But luckily it's still running strong and reliable as hell. :-)

To prevent fade with the new plastics, the best thing is to keep the car undercover where possible.

It is certainly an ongoing chore to maintain plastic, though so far the Eunie has only needed one application of the product.
