depends on the finish you want.

it was more for the vinyl trims I've done, since its black and looks good but so easy to mark even with rubbing a finger along it...leaves a nice skin mark :P

didnt wanna use armour all as it leaves awful greasy residue and is a pain to clean it all off later down the track if u decide to re-upholster etc down the track.

I painted my dash with the septone paint and then to protect it i used armor all. I hate how its all greasy and that but it only stays like that for an hour or so. I had my dash painted for a while and its still good. I think with the armor all its harder to scratch and it hasnt faded.

I tried a little thing with the s**t strip on the passenger side where the airbag goes if you have one and basically painted it and half of it left it and half armor alled it and the armor all side lasted and the other didnt...even with the misus and her knee high boots on it. :)

Yeh just sucks to get it all off later down the track gets in everywhere and goos everything up...I'll leave it as is for now...
