NO NO NO NO don't use Armor All unless you want a cracked dash over time. I learned a long time ago what to use on all your interior surfaces from a corrosion control specialist - LEMON PLEDGE. I was told the main ingredient of this stuff is some ozone deflector/preservative that is perfect for plastic surfaces inside your car. I've been using it for years and people always ask me what I use to keep everything looking good. Give it try - I'll think you'll like it.
Don't do it! Is it just me or does Armour All seem to ATTRACT more dust? I have heard not to use it for the cracking dashboard reasons - but to me it always seems to feel really greasy and afterwards the car seems to get even dustier quicker!
I'm going to avoid it like the plague.
Armour All glass cleaner wipes are handy for the glass though... they come in those little "baby wipe" containers and do a good job on the windows.
Don't know what to use - if anything - on the plastic pannels. So far I've just gone to the spray it down yourself car wash and used the clear coat protect spray when I'm done and finish up with the spot free rinse.
FYI ONLY - spoke with the the Consumer Resource Center for SC Johnson the makers of Lemon Pledge and they said that it is fine for interior vinyl / dashboard use but, it is NOT to be used on exterior surfaces.
I swore off ArmorAll when one of their products permanetly hazed my clear dash and Armorall sent me 10 bucks and said to buy rubbing compound and rub it out. (Did not work).
I like Griot's Garage Vinyl Dressing for the inside and outside panels. Gives it a clean satin sheen like it was new. Not greasy. Also on the outside it does a good job of holding up against the rain. It actually beads up like a wax on the hood.

I do have a question, though. Does anyone know if it's safe to wax the plastic panels on the car?[/quote:30e2935c34]
DO NOT WAX THE PLASTIC PANELS>> IT WILL TURN WHITE... you either want to use vinlyex or 303 protectant....[/quote:30e2935c34]
