Convertible tops?

What do you guys use, if anything at all, to clean/protect your tops? I do like the wet look cuz when the black is dry, it looks pretty dull. I was thinking something like armorall, but I'm sure there's got to be something better out there. Any suggestions?? Thanks.

Talking :)

I dont ever put anything on mine cuz its always down anyways!
PLUS...its bout to be replaced w/ my new one thats in my living room. Ive heard that armorall can crack or dry the top, but I dont know how true that is...
I too like a shiny look on my black or plastic parts. I would suggest a tire shine...maybe just a lite one...ENDURANCE is great, but might be too greasy. Eagle One makes TIRE WET that is a spray... If you use armorall, the DETAILERS AVANTAGE is the best one Ive found for a really shiny, wet look!
Lemme know which you decided you like!

Most Armorall products are alcohol based. They would not be good for anything leather, rubber, and most likely vinyl. Use a vinly top dressing and you should be okay. I'd recommend 3M as it works good on all plastics, rubber, and vinyl. Just my opinion.

I use Raggtopp from Haartz, ordered online from the web. Seems to work better than anything else I've tried.
