best vinyl and rubber protectant

Happy Easter to everyone!!!
I'm shopping for a vinyl and rubber protectant that will not only work well on the interior but also help maintain the unpainted plastic just below the wipers and the weather striping. I like a some shine to the interior with the colors of the interior looking nice dark and rich. Does anyone have some product suggestions? You know I can't make a decision without consulting the AG gang.

I use Black Wow and Megs # 40 on the exterior black plastic trim. I'm sure others have their favorites also.

Re: best vinyl and rubber protectant

Is 303 water based?

I was looking at Wolfgang and Four Star Ultimate Vinyl Protectant. WOW is a little more than I would like to spend but it does seem to be a good product.

Re: best vinyl and rubber protectant

I also use 303, many say it washes away in the rain but I haven't experienced that yet. I gotta admit though, that I was very impressed with Black Wow during the demo at DetailFest 4 but obviously I can't attest to its longevity from there.

Re: best vinyl and rubber protectant

I've experienced 303 coming off when it rains. You can pick it up locally at a boat store though.

If you like some gloss on the interior use 303. I like a matte finish so I use 1Z Cockpit dressing. For exterior plastic you can't beat Black Wow. Just be sure to wipe it down with a damp mf after applying or it will run if it rains the same day. A little goes a long way. Foam brushes are too soft to apply Wow, I like AG's foam sticks to apply.

Re: best vinyl and rubber protectant

303 Aerospace and 1Z Cockpit Premium are what I use. Both great products.

Re: best vinyl and rubber protectant

Poorboys Trim Restorer for outside area ... quite a bit more durable versus Black WOW.
