Matte Stripe care

I have the matte black vinyl stripes on my IOM SS. I was wondering if Adams Brilliant Glase or Adams Buttery wax would be good to put on them, or just a soap wash?

do not use wax on them. It will make them gloss black

turtle wax Ice synthetic spray on wax which really isn't a wax seems to do a good job on mine though it has to be reapplied every couple weeks or so for it to work well. a little goes a long way with it also.

Adam's Brilliant Glaze works great on my matte stripes. Previous posts I've read say to stay away from waxing them.

I was told not to use Adams Buttery wax, however I thought I would try it on mine. They came out great, didn't make them glossy, but it did make them more of a darker black. I love the way they look.

I use the detail spray to clean them and haven't waxed mine at all.
