Interior protection

What do you all use for your interior? I heard armor all is not good. I used it before i noticed it was taking color off the dash.

I was told many years ago not to use Armor All. I have been using Wizards Tire & Vinyl shine for the past couple of years on my '61's interior and now I won't use anything else. If you have been using Armor All and you do decide to use Wizards, you will need to pre clean your interior surfaces as it contains silicones whereas Wizards products do not. I also use Wizards products on the exterior paintwork and since I have been, all the other cleaning products in my garage have been trashed. Hope this helps.

They have a website you can order from and they have retailers that sell their products listed. They also have a cleaning product you can use before you use the Vinyl Shine or I suppose you could just use something like Simple Green.

I use Meguiar's Quik Interior Detailer. It works great.
