The bottle is 8 fluid ounces(236ml). I think it was more than worth it for the job it did. I only used about 1 fluid ounce of the stuff for both bars.

If it was me, i woulda painted them black before i installed them. I used back to black on my fender flares... and it wore off in a few weeks or so. They look great now, but who knows how they'll look later on. But it was deff a good call to darken them up.

I've still got 7/8 of the bottle left.

If I use up the entire bottle and it continuously wears off, then I will definitely be giving them the satin black paint treatment.

Was going through my old threads, and ran across this post again.

As Falco51 mentioned, the stuff does wear off after about 4 weeks. I've reapplied it about 3 times now, which isn't too bad. If you're heavily into detailing your truck every month, than this stuff works great. But if you're not into detailing, then I'd suggest painting instead.
