Default What do you use to shine up the interior of your car?

Exactly like it says boys and girls and.....other.... What do you use to shine up the dash and other plastic/leather parts of your interior?

It all depends on what kind of look you are going for.

If you are lookiing for a matte factory like appearance then 303 Aerospace protectant is the way to go.

It can be found at: http://www.properautocare.com/303-16.html

If you are looking for a semi gloss look but not to the point where the sun reflecting off your dash is going to blind you then Lexol Vinylex is the way to go.

It can be found at: http://www.properautocare.com/lex1215.html

Finally the last of my 3 products is Pinnacle Vinyl & Rubber Protectant. This provides a nice shine and can be found at:

http://www.properautocare.com/pin-360.html

All 3 of these products provide protection from Ultraviolet rays and do not contain harmful silicones. They will protect your dash plastic and rubber for long periods of time. They can also be used on exterior plastic, many people like using vinylex on thier wheels.

If you are looking for other interior care products take a look at: http://www.properautocare.com/vinrubcarpro.html

If you are serious about keeping your car perfect looking head over to www.autopia-carport.com and purchase the autopia guide to detailing for 10.99, it will give you a wealth of information you never knew about detailing. You can also read up on the forums for more detailing information that you could ever take in in 1 day.

My last disclaimer: UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you EVER use Aromor All, Armor All contains harmful silicones that over times will make your rubber and vinyl fade and crack. On top of that Armor All has very little to NO UV protection and in some cases magnifies the UV rays on the dash.

Thanks for your time

Bryan

I use Vinylex. Really shines up well and isn't nasty like armor all...

Believe it or not Swiffer works pretty well for taking off the dust and footprints, etc. on the b-pillars and door panels.
