I use Meguires quick detailer spray, wipe them down with a rag after spraying, keeps them looking new.

Looks good David. Really good.

Mine was clean but the plastic was just hazed out.

I have a couple different Adams products I can try now so will give them a shot when the time comes.

Tried the Adams undercarriage today when I put my inner fender liners back in. Cant say I am really impressed with it.

Looked fair to start. Let it sit a couple hours and drove it to my parents to take care of the dog and drove back. About 1 mile trip and totally dust covered. The rears which have not been touched look fine.

Smells nice. Is hell on concrete like Adams mentioned in video and seems to attract dust like crazy.

I might try the VRT and see how it does. Or nothing at all for now as my liners are all new.

What does it look like after driving in the first rain?

I have been using the Turtle Wax Back to Black (on all the parts/suspension/ frame) looks like brand new but after a couple of car washes it looks gray again (the only thing good is it does not attract dust)

Undercarriage Spray is just going to attract dust. It fine for an older chassis, but it's terrible in plastic wheel liners. What I have always done is scrub with some form of All Purpose Cleaner, I prefer Optimum Power Clear, let them dry and then apply SVRT with the foam block applicators. Once it dries, it usually doesn't attract much dust, doesn't drip, and doesn't stink to high heaven like UC Spray. And the SVRT can take a bit of moisture abuse where as the UC Spray will just discolor and run.

You can also dilute SVRT with some water, shake it REALLY well, and spray it as a spray application. You'll have to figure out the ratio that works for you, but it works for areas that don't lend themselves well to applying with a traditional applicator.

Good info. Sounds like your results and impressions are about the same as mine.

Weatherstripping adhesive is the only thing that will hold them up.

I would guesstimate about 6 months, but I park inside my garage and rarely drive on dirt / gravel roads. Rain is no problem as the water beads up and runs off. Never really did a longevity test since WD-40 is cheap and I buy it by the gallon and use it on just about everything.

I had decent results with the Back to Black on the trim parts but I have never used it on the suspension.

Yes I gorilla glued mine and put a football in the fenderwell to hold it in place overnight. A dozen or so times of my kids "sliding" out and it is drooping again.

Crimping them? As in while it is in place on the body?

I tried that. It only lasts a little while and it will start to fall again. I guess without an adhesive, there isn't any other way to keep them up.
