    For the natural look, CG or Meg's Natural Shine.

    High gloss dash protectant is a bad idea IMO because of the glare of creates, especially if you are using it on a Customers dash

    Meg's has both hi gloss and natural. You could dilute the high gloss to a medium.

    I have CG Silk shine, hi gloss when used on interiors, so like Allen said, I don't use it but on exterior trim and engine bay. I also like CG Innerclean for a natural look. Careful what you use on steering wheels too.


    Most high gloss products I used also attracted dust quicker than natural ones.

    Look into meg's quick interior detailer too.

    Polish for clear plastic is the same as colored plastic. And I would just use what compound/polish you use for paint. If it's a polishable plastic.

    Knobs are plastic, so use the same products you use for the dash. Leather is the only thing that needs different products.

    For a natural look get Meguiar's Natural Shine. For one that has a little more gloss look into Meguiar's Ultimate Ptotectant. You can knock the shine down with a final buff or applying it with a microfiber applicator.

    Check out Mothers Plastic Polish for a plastic cleaner.

    Re: Interior detailing products

    Be careful polishing interior plastics

    As Lmdef9 said, you can get good results using the same methods and products you use for exterior paint

    Be aware that not all interior plastics can be polished and in my experience, paint on interior pieces tends to be thinner and is often not clear coated

    Most of the faux and real wood trim has a fair amount of CC on it and responds well to polishing

    DP Plex-All is a great product to use on speedometer/tach area. It brightens the plastic and protects. It can also be used on taillamps and other plexiglass areas. Its a thick foam, so its easy to control also.
