As title states, what is the product of choice for a Black Vinyl Top? Years back there was stuff that looked like shoe polish that worked great and I'm thinking of trying Black shoe polish in paste form. Don't want anything greasy that will ruin my car cover either.
Thanks Ron

Weiman floor polish.

Have to be at an old style hardware store. You wet a rag and then rub it in. Lasts for ever.

Can't use just everyday polish, it will whiten if caught in the rain until it hardens again. Has to be a professional grade.

Wear gloves, hard to get off your hands

That shoe polish type stuff you are referring to was made by Turtle Wax. I used it on my black vinyl top cars back in the early 70's. It came in white or black depending on your car's top color. Great stuff, I loved it. Wish they still made it, but I have not seen it now in years.

I have had two cars with nice original tops, and as soon as I put stuff on them they disintegrated very quickly.

First one I used Armor All and similar products. Middle of the top was 50% gone with the wind in a few months.

Second One I used a clear boot grease. That looked nice and lasted a little longer. I did notice if the car got rained on it would run down onto the windows.

I bought and used the 303 Vinyl Protection and the top looks nice. Used it on the dash and door panels too.
Guess we'll have to see how well it holds up.
Thanks Ron

What kind of finish did it leave on the top Ron? Good timing for this as I was looking for something too.
