I was wondering what is a good product (s) to use to clean the dashboard. I don't want to use Armor all, because I don't want the black bits to be shiny. I do want the silver bits to be shiny. Any ideas?

Thanx,
Rich

ArmorAll that leaves the dash shiny is not a cleaner.
Do you really mean clean or do you mean protect..

Clean. The best thing is just plain mild soap and water.

Protect. My favorite is 303 Aerospace Protectant. Best thing I've ever used.

I use a damp cloth to wipe down the dash and any interior pieces that need cleaning.

Then I follow it up with a coating of 303 protectant on the black plastic.

For the painted bits, I use Meguiars NXT wax.

Interesting topic...there's the upper dash..the big black part...then there's the instrument panel dash...

Are the instrument panel dash.. and door trim panels painted...or color impregnated plastic? If marred can they be polished out? Should these items be protected with sealer or wax.. or just cleaned and 303'd?

What about the chrome trim on the dash? Sealed or cleaned and 303'd?

There are a lot of different materials in there...what to do eh?

Can 303 be used on leatherette seats??!
