I don't like armor all that much. Sure it looks great, but leaves everything slightly greasy... IMO

And I've heard from multiple people that if you don't use it often it can actually cause cracking.

Ask any auto body professional what he thinks of ArmorAll. If it gets on your paint, you will play hell trying to get any new paint to stick there. From what I hear you have to strip to bare metal and then acid etch the surface to remove the oily residue.

For about a week if you are lucky . The grease ATTRACTS dirt! :( I would NEVER put that on my truck/car. But do as you like.

303 Aerospace ONLY! It is a UV Protectant and looks really nice. :D

I use 303 too. My b/f is a bodyman, he has heard from other guys in his profession that Armor All will cause cracks in the dash and panels. It deteriorates rubber, too. 303 is awesome, it seems to work just fine.

Either 303, or Meguiars "Natural Shine". 303 preferred. The liquid (non-polymerizing) silicone oils in products like ArmorAll are the problem, as well as the petroleum distillates found in some of them. Avoid them is my advice. Over time they destroy vinyl and rubber.
