I am sure I speak to everyone on here being avid enthusiasts of the blue oval - we all take pride and joy in our girls, and time and care to keep her looking good. I have been doing some searching through the forums and have found that many use amourall for their dashes as it protects against the elements and from light general wear on the painted surfaces (for the DIY's), but many have also said they don't like the oily residue it leaves... From my time at a company called WURTH (which anyone in the mechanical or panel industry will know) I used silicon spray. Does not leave an oily residue, easy to clean off if need be, and protects vinyls, plastics and paints on the interior, rather than seeping into the materials, it just puts a top coat on. Alot of the gyms use silicon spray on their vinyl benches to stop sweat seeping into the vinyl and causing premature wear and cracking... One tip though, don't do what one of my idiotic, one IQ point away from an egg plant mates did and spray it on your tyres - kind it makes it hard to grip in the wet... :roll:
Just thought I would share... :D

Mate - it looks slightly "wet" for want of a better word, it gives it that new vinyl shine that you see in new cars... I think it makes it look better anyway... on me EB (going back a while now) I used amourall and because the oil actually seeps into the vinyl, it actually contributed to causing the cracks in the dash... :x Switched over to silicon spray, problem solved!! And the silicon on tyres, while its all fun and games doing some pretty impressive burnouts, silicon + water = write off, looked just as impressive as the burnout though... LOL :lol:
Oh and one more tip, make sure you spray the stuff with the windows down, while products are supposed to be alot more friendly to people these days, I know that burning silicon is carcenogenic (or however its spelt) ie - its really bad!! So breathing the stuff in directly might not be such a good thing, especially if your a smoker - LOL... :)
