Interior plastics treatments

I have been using Zaino products on the outside of my 2002 Z28 Light Pewter. Have done clay bar and Zaino on my new Black 2SS/RS/M6. Looks great. On my Z28, I used Armorall or similar store bought product on interior black plastics. I would like to know what others think is the best for interior plastics. I do not see anything that specifically says for interiors on the Zaino site.

I use 1Z einszett Plastic Vinyl Deep Cleaner to clean all colored and clear automotive plastic fittings including armrests, door handles, shift knobs, vinyl seats, pedals, dash, storage compartments, rocker panels.

1Z einszett Plastic Vinyl Deep Cleaner leaves a dust-resistant matte finish, and it's Water-based formula is biodegradable, formalin-free and environmentally friendly. Follow-up with a treatment of 1Z einszett Cockpit Premium or 1Z einszett Vinyl Rubber Care and Protectant. Leaves an anti-static, Matte finish.

These are awesome products to use on your interior, you have to give them a shot.

Thanks for the help. What I read said that 1Z einszett Cockpit Premium does not give a shine. That is great. Does the 303 leave much of a shine?

303 is nice because you can put it on anything, i mean anything, and it doesnt leave a film or collect dirt. Kind of pricey but its great.

For use on the dash, center console, etc., I've tried 'Turtle Wax' "Total Interior Care" and like it.

Leave's a non-greasy, matt like finish.

I gotta try that, I HATE armorall, especially right after you armorall stuff and then it rains or whatever and you open the door and get streaks down the door where the water hit the armorall....

I still like the 'Armor-All' products. But I only use the "Extreme Tire Shine" spray. I don't like the greasy, gloss shine that the "Original" leaves on the interior.

Yeah i was specifically talking about the original interior spray. The greasiness and its aversion to water make it pretty useless on a daily car.

Ack, don't use Armorall. It's a slimy, greasy mess.

I use the Zaino leather cleaner and protector on the entire interior of our '99 SS convertible Camaro and plan on using it on the 5th Gen, too.

I use SP80 Red Bottle. Plus, I just talked to the guy and he will give Camaro5 a discount (i believe 20%). All you have to do is type in "camaro5" under the redemption code as your checking out. The website is www.sp80man.com

I ordered both of these products. When ordered, they did not have the cockpit cleaner in stock. I got the deep cleaner about two weeks ago and used it. I got the cockpit cleaner Friday and tried it out Saturday. I really like these products. They do not create a shine. The matte finish looks great. They are easy to use. For a cleaning product, I think the smell is great. There is no lingering odor. Thanks for letting me know about these products.

I just use a moist micro fiber towel, then I use Meguiars quick interior detailer. Protects and cleans but doesn't leave a greasey feeling and you can use it on everything. Vinyl, plastics, electronics, glass and leather.

Mark V

I used Mark V products on my interior and I'm very happy with them.

Mark V Lustre Shield spray for hard to reach spots.

Mark V MVP Blue Dressing for the plastics.

Mark V Leather Treat for the leather.

Please dont use anything that leaves the top of dash shiny you can't see out the windshield of this car in the sun it's so bad I had to use some windex to get the shine off and now I just use a interior cleaner wipe on this area I cant tell you how brutally bad it is to see out the windshield when the top dash is reflective
