    I'd recommend 303™ Aerospace Protectant?

    If you are talking about the textured leather grain black area, that is fiberglass. The best wax that I have found to use on all of the fiberglass textured area's is Woody's Wax. It comes in a metal spray bottle and is very easy to use and does a great job bringing it back and protecting the finish. Just follow the directions on the back of the can.
    It is very expensive, about $40.00, but will last for years as it takes very little to do the job.

    Woody's wax will make it shine again with out distorting the grain like buffing will.

    Lee, I see there are a few different products made by Woody's Wax. Is it the " Fiberglass & Non-Skid Deck Wax and Metal Restoration & Protection" you are talking about?

    Dang, had I known I would have brought my rig back last weekend. I normally just leave it up at DCL this time of year so I don't have to haul it up and down the mountain. Do this again in the October, that's not even an hour drive for me.

    Well the Upper Bay Jam is from October 24th to 26th this year in Darlington, Maryland. Woody's wax on the textured surface in the Allison is amazing - nothing better.

    Does it work well on the rear steps too? Mine aren't looking so good right now.

    You're welcome Brian.
    A friend of mine told me about it several years ago, I just tried it last year. I'm a little slow at times.
