wax suggestions (vinyl included) ?

hey all - I've read that caranuba waxes are not good for vinyl pieces on cars. I have a few pieces of vinyl on my car and I'd like an all in one type of wax application if possible.

can anyone fill me in, or suggest a product? thank you kindly.

Optimum Opti-Seal works great, good durability, easily applied, and safe for your stripes. Don't use wax on the stripes. Generally not a great idea. Sealants are better for that.

Opti-Seal is the same way.... except it actually lasts.

If you want something that is quick and easy then go with Turtle Wax Ice. However it doesn't last very long and you'll be rewaxing the car every month.

Now if you are willing to put some time into waxing go with either Adam's Clear Polish or Zaino Z2. Both take time to do but will last. I can go 6 months in between waxes with Z2.
