    Three year old vehicle installed cal cut vinyl is starting to fade and look mottled. Will a product like Armor-all hurt the finish on the vehicle. Other suggestions?

    You can try waxing, but calendered vinyl is not the best choice for vehicles.

    hhhmmm!!! Calendared Vinyl life is 3 to 5 years depending on the environment. Massachusetts heat and humidity in the summer; snow and salt in the winter. I say the customer got what they paid for.

    I always preferred "you can polish a turd, but it's still a turd".

    Well they proved that you can "polish a turd" on Mythbusters.:tongue:

    To the op, armoral wont hurt either the vinyl or the vehicle paint. I used to use it on my bike paint work all the time.
