Unhappy Anyone Seen This Stuff?

I have just finished using my last bottle and went to pepboys to buy some more, they don't have it. I started looking online and it seems like everyone is sold out. Anyone know where you can get this? Honestly, if you haven't used it, you have no idea what you are missing.

I read that it is a discontinued item and I can't seem to find it anywhere. Try to contact Meguiar's and see if they have something that is similar to that.

Likely fell victim to the very same VOC compliance rules In & Out Spray did a few years back. I'd imaging megs has to recert. the product with the EPA before releasing a new version which took us 2 years to do.

This stuff was the bomb, they re-named it to Accent Dressing a couple years ago, and then discontinued it. You might be able to find some old cans at O'Reileys or Target but I havn't seen any in my part of the woods for awhile.

Next closest thing is Chemical Guys Black on Black

Yeah it made plastic look like it did the day it left the factory. I figured they stopped due to the fact it was aerosol. Any alternatives? I never thought to look at a place like lowes.

Dylan beat me to it. You won't be disappointed with anything from Adam's, especially In n Out spray it's probably very similar to Meguiars but it's made by Adam's, a forum sponsor, and the best company I've ever dealt with so enough said.

So I watched the in and out vids on Adams web site.

Why not just use it to cover the whole piece? instead of wiping the VRT on it and THEN using?

Mequiars is now advertising two new products for interior detail. I'm sure they have replaced that item.

VRT lasts longer... In & Out is a way to dress tight spots and areas where getting an applicator and a cream type dressing is difficult (or impossible)

So the idea is to dress everything you can reach with an applicator and then go back and get the spots you couldn't hit with In & Out.

I can't say that I am familiar with these Adams products, but I have seen them talked up rather highly on this site. Compared to surf city (90% of what I use), it seems a little high priced. I will put in an order for a couple can's and see how it looks and may just become an Adam's user.

I was the same way a few months ago, I started out with a $140 order of the basic Wash & Wax kit and now I own at least one of almost everything they sell, it's addictive, it's worse than alcohol

Meguiar's does have a new version of this, and it's only 5.99 a can. Just saying.

Care to elaborate on this. The only aerosol that Mequiars sell is there new endurance Tire Shine and not a trim detailer. I was just talking to Mike Philips the other day about this, and Mequiars is working on something as what Dylan said they need it to be VOC compliant.

You might be seeing some old stuff on the shelf.

Between the EPA and ObamaCare, soon we're all going to be wards of the state, begging the ruling class for our pittance.
