Be careful with these "mass market" rubber and vinyl
protectants. Armor All, Finish 2001, etc. Most are
silicone based, which although glossy, actually draws
moisture out of the plastic, causing it to crack and
split more in the long-run. I think "Black Chrome" is
silicone-free, which is good, but my personal favorite
is called "Formula 303". It's silicone free, it has
the strongest UV sunscreen available in any
protectant, and it has a very natural, "satin" finish.
Not too glossy at all. I use it on everything, and
it's the bomb. Not cheap (at about $15 a bottle), but
it's a great product.
