    If you like it on your dash and leather, chances are that youll be fine with using it on the rest of your interior. If its too shiny, take a dry towel and buff in the excess.

    Honestly, you really dont need anything on your interior to "protect" it. The only real benefit from using a product such as this is for visual and tactile aesthetics.

    If youre looking for something that works really well try HD Protect. It actually has a slight darkening effect and makes the surface feel soft without ANY greasiness.

    Plus one on the Einszeitt Cockpit Premium. It is always good to use a mild APC to remove previously applied products. I still do not agree that "you do not need anything on your interior to protect it". A good product should add a little UV protection while keeping the vinyl/rubber from cracking due to heat or the natural aging process. Just my opinion, nothing scientific to back it up.

    Back to OPs question, I started using Leather Stuff and Natural Look by Poor Boys and really like them.

    They are great for well maintained cars, because they clean when you apply them. So, you can turn a 2 step process into a one step process. LS leaves the surface kind of satin like - its not greasy, but you know there is something on it. Some gloss. NL is a very low gloss product - its very good for leaving your interior with a new car look.

    IMHO, PBs stuff is going to be better than Megs or CGs for these type of products (and most products in general). Both of these products are very versatile and can be used on most interior surfaces.

    Megs Leather Sealer is a solid product, Ive used and reviewed it. Only problem is - its a 2 step process.

    Re: Interior Questions

    Does 303 aerospace protect interior plastics? For me that answer is a resounding yes. I have been putting the aerospace on all the interior plastic since I`ve had the car (3 years). That is everywhere except the underside of the header above the windshield. I don`t really know why I don`t. I just wipe it clean from the dust on it. Of course this doesn`t get direct sunlight on it, even with the top down.

    So I`m cleaning the interior today. Once I sat down and wiped the header, top then bottom. I see the bottom isn`t dust, it`s oxidized. No other plastic on the car is that way. Not on the interior, exterior, engine bay, undercarriage of the car. All of those areas hAd regularly gotten the 303 aerospace on them. So I have to say without question it is a great product that works.




    The top top of the header after just a quick wipe.




    The underside, to the right after scrubbing with APC. The left you can see the white oxidation.

    Geez Rob4092xx! your response is a cut-and-paste from response #76 in the thread:
    https://www.autopia.org/forums/car-d...hlight=leather

    What, you don`t think anyone would remember (Haven`t I seen this some place before???) It`s still good/great technical info on leather.

    The leather cleaning/conditioning is a forum topic that keeps re-appearing quite often and everyone has a different experience with the plethora of leather care products out there. My suggestion?
    Listen to Stokdgs. I respect his opinions and experience with Spinnybeck.
