Works great on the vinyl too.
I believe Girot's Garage (sp?) has a similar product.

I will try a little silicone (as soon as I get an authoritative answer on the damage/no damage question) on one strip just to see the difference. If it is significant I will surely post pictures and results for all to see!

It seems that silcone (ArmorAll, etc) is one of those "good point, bad points" products. It's probably better than doing nothing. It does help in some ways. It is detrimental in others. And it takes time to really see or know the difference. One is not going to be able to tell from one application.
I use to use ArmorAll many years ago. I hadn't used anything on my cars for years when I got the 303 stuff. What I noticed was that it was not as greasy as the ArmorAll. It went on nice and didn't seem to be as harsh on the hands/skin. (One probably should use some vinyl gloves... *shrug*). It lasts for quite a while on the vinyl and it certainly seems to have kept my weatherstipping pliable. And I only get it on about twice a year, maybe 3 times if I'm lucky.
2 years ago when I had major work done on my car, the dealer treated me to a "car cleaning". I never asked what they used, but the vinyl didn't look as good, or stay looking good for very long. And I had a film of 'something' on the entire inside of my windows! I've heard of other products causing the more volatile constituents of the plastic to 'evaporate' and coat the windows. It certainly seems to be what happened, but I didn't recall that effect from years ago when I use to use the ArmorAll product. Whatever. It was interesting to note though.

Another vote for 303 Aerospace Protectant. I ordered mine directly from them.
Works great on the vinyl too.
Ditto here, except I buy mine at TC's OFF ROAD in Kent. I've used it for years and this is one of those products that is worth the price. Yep it costs more.
