Default What's the best Vinyl Protectant?

Hey all,
I've been using Lexol Vinylex but I have a hard time finding it in my area. I like the way it restores the black vinyl trim on my cars and it doesn't leave a greasy residue. Is there any product that compares and is available at my local Autozone?

Thanks,
Mike

Have you checked stores that cater to boaters?

Anyway, I use 303 Aerospace Protectant for the interior and Meguiar's #40 for exterior. Meg's is great on tires, too.

If you looking for something at Autozone, see if they carry Meguiar's Natural Shine Interior Protectant.

If you want to go to something with a little more UV protection then I would strongly suggest 303 Aerospace Protectant. Some RV/Camping/Boating stores carry it, but your best bet is going to be to order it online from a great retailer and site sponsor like ourselves: Properautocare.com (Shamless PLUG!)

1Z Einszett Vinyl and Rubber Protectant is a great product and so is 303 Protectant. They offer a nice matte look and some UV protection too.

303 works great on the tires as well. A little expensive but it works great and lasts a long time.

Another excellent choice to ASP 303 is Finish Kare 108.........I think it much cheaper too. Same UV protection, same look, same smell.

Cheers,
GREG
