Default Shiney dashboard

Hey everybody,
I have a 03 Ram and I want to know what will make the dashboard shine like a new penny! I have been trying different things and would like to know what other people are using! I love the high gloss shine look!
Thanks

Yup, almost anything you find at the auto parts store will do. I prefer to use 3M products myself. Expensive but possibly the best stuff around.

I hate the reflection of a shiny dash in my windshield. I keep mine clean and use an interior quick detailer.

Armor-all is good, if you wish to have a cracked dash in the furture, if you are using it... THROW IT AWAY!!!!

This is what you want, the only product I use!


Best product out today.... you need something with UV protection.

303 protectant is great stuff! I have about a dozen dressings, but the dilutable ones are what I prefer. They are also water-based, meaning they can be shiney, but not greasy. Meguiars Hyperdressing is dilutable at 4 parts water to 1 part hyperdressing, or 1:1 for a very shiney surface. Optimum Optibond is a gel, but still water based and can be diluted as well. 1Z Einszett Tiefenpfleger is another very popular choice. Many dressings and protectants will leave a natural look to the dash, and many will make it shiney. There are a ton of choices, so just choose one that suits you. Most can be found online, but if you prefer in store one, try to be selective and pick the dressing that is water based, and not a silicone mess [like many Armor All actually are].
