What do you guys do to shine up your vinyl tonneau covers. Leather cleaner or something else? Just looking for something that wont run if it rains and make the paint look like crap.

Thanks in advance

this may sound like a stupid question but is it a soft one? If so i would suggest some Adam's VRT.

You might try tire shine or some armor all wipes or something?

Pretty much anything and everything you're going to find is going to run. Trust me, I've tried almost all of it.

I did find something that doesn't run, but you won't be able to get it on short notice. Its a special order product....can't remember what the hell its called but I have a bottle of it in my garage.

Another vote for Adam's VRT. Best over the counter alternative I think would be Turtle Wax F21 Super Protectant (green spray bottle). I was really impressed with this stuff when I used it detailing my dad's truck. Doesn't attract dust like ArmorAll Natural Finish Detailer.

Do not use any petrolium based products such as Armor All or STP Son of a Gun. They will dry out and shrink the vinyl. I use Formula 303. It works pretty good and won't shrink the vinyl but it does leave run marks on the truck.
