    McKeey's Plastic Trim Restorer = WETS?

    Hello All,

    Does anyone with experience with these two products know if they are the same, or are they very similar in chemical composition? I have WETS, and have used it, and just cracked open a bottle of McKee's Plastic Trim Restorer and they smell very similar, but also notice a slight difference. It could just be the freshness of the product that my nose is smelling.

    Thank you.

    I have and use both.

    Quite frankly, I can't really tell the difference. They both apply the same, and last for weeks and weeks. (I'm on week 7 on my trim with the McKee's, and it is just now looking like a refresh is in order).

    I have both and they are very much the same if not identical.

    How do you guys recommend using this to coat trim? Like how to apply it to rubber weather stripping around the windows? Also on my truck I have a rougher texture rubber under the window, any recommendations on that?

    I use a small foam brush from Harbor Freight. Allow more precision and it’s so cheap I discard after use. I wait a little bit to wipe the excess. Usually do about 1/3 of the trim and come back to wipe, and proceed to the rest. Excellent product.

    You can also buy various trim sponges and use a razor blade to trim them down to any size that fits your needs.

    I don’t know about ‘freshness’...but I always
    thought WETS’ aroma was a mix between:
    sorta-fishy, and ammoniacal—similar to the
    chemical smell that emanates from Morpholine:
    a ‘rust inhibitor’.

    •Not saying that WETS actually contains any
    Morpholine, or not. However, WETS is adver-
    tised as providing ‘corrosion protection’...

    Will logic prevail in this scenario?

    I see WETS and Mckees 37 as a plastic protectant and SEMI trim restorer. You want a real trim restorer, use solution finish.

    If you don't have anything scientific to say, and pertinent to the question posed, then shut the Hell up.
