Default Do you think I can use Armour All on my Convertible top?

I just cleaned my top about an hour ago with top cleaner. But it's kind of washed out looking. Do you think I could use Armour All? I looked but AutoZone didn't have any top sealer type products?

personally, I don't think armor all protectant is a good product. I believe many have said it helps retain heat (on dashes anyway), and that will lead to premature aging of your top.

go to the car care section and see what people recommend.

This is the kit for fabric tops

Fabric tops take some level of care even with protectorants. You need to use a good fabric cleaner made for vert tops then follow with the protectorant.

Even if you have a vinyl top, it's still worth buying the 303 stuff.

Sure, you can use it, but it will probably ruin the top

Armor All sucks. I wouldn't use it on anything. Use RaggTopp for your convertible top.
