    I do it to my Firebird, but not to my Taco. It's surprising how much different it makes the vehicle look. Creates a nice finish.

    Are you really using ArmorAll or is just a generic term for you. I stopped using that crap 20 years ago. Tire foam is the way to go. Looks much better and doesn't turn your tires brown. It's ok for the interior though (so I do have some available).

    I dont use armoall but use the stuff called F2 made by turtle wax. Less greasy and has good UV protection. I use it on all the plastic and rubber stuff. Even on the door seals. It keeps them from sticking in the cold winter or freezing and they dont come apart in the heat of the summer.

    Armour all is garbage for interior use. Aerospace 303 is your golden ticket. Anything that sees sun, I highly recommend this product.

    Armor All works great on the frame to stop mud, and shit from sticking on it.

    I wonder how pam spray would work, I've known guys at work who have used it at work for special applications where things stick and said it worked great.

    Tough for me to wash with current weather, but I normally use westley's bleche white with scrub brush on inner fenders, then spray everything with meguires tire foam.
