This product is superior to most on the market.

I’ve applied it on the Factory Cordova top and OEM Interior on my ‘65 GTO Survivor.

The vinyl (morrokide) interior looks like a New 60’s vehicle. Just the right amount of sheen.

take a stiff bristled tooth brush heat the handle about 1" back from the head and bend it to an angle, then take some scissors and randomly snip in the bristles so they vary in length by at least the depth of the grain you are trying to clean...

Then you can hold it between your thumb and index finger with the tip of your index finger work in small circles clockwise then again counterclockwise the bristles pick away at the dirt... using anymore pressure rolls the ends of the bristles over and they are rendered pretty much useless...
Wipe with a CLEAN white rag and when there is no more brown residue you are done.
I don't know that I have ever found TRULY clean interior in a purported "clean" car.

I've got one crazier... check out the 69 Camaro dash pad - top directly above the clock or center fuel-

After cleaning
I use the meguires vinyl and leather conditioner, I dampen a small rag, wipe it on then go back and use a microfiber the color of the interior as wipe down making sure there is nothing "wet" left anywhere, if the vinyl or leather doesn't absorb it I wipe it off, if I need 2 for removal... so be it.
If you have really dried out REAL leather you can use mink oil to get some suppleness back into REAL leather.

I have tried the Meguiars M5716 on the front seats and have attached a couple pics. It certainly improved the feel of the vinyl and makes it softer, and supple. The first pic is before, the second after. The vinyl has a sheen that it didn't have before. So far, I am pleased but I haven't had time to really work on the interior so don't have a real detailed report, but thought I would provide an update.
