I installed my interior about 16 months ago. It is fading badly where the sun hits. I called the source and they said that they only warranty that if Armor All was not used. I use Meguiars, mostly but truthfully, I don't wipe the interior down a lot, maybe 4 times over the last year. They made it a point to tell me that they never have this problem and I can certainly understand that but at the same time, I haven't either.

I feel like it should be warrantied regardless even if it was cleaned with Armor All because nowhere on the site, phone conversations, packing material does it say you can or can't use any particular cleaning products.

What do you guys think?

Ya kinda think that they should mention that in writing somewhere. How are you supposed to be aware of that has a customer?

I JUST INSTALLED PEERLESS FAUCETS.
I HAD TO READ THIS TO HELEN !!! IT CAME WITH.
Avoid industrial cleaners and abrasive cleaners, such as those used for toilet bowls, green Scotch-Brite heavy duty scrub sponges, Scrubbing Bubbles Bathroom Cleaner and Lysol Basin Tub, Soft Scrub, and Tile Cleaner.
I INSTALLED A OWENS CORNING FIBERGLASS TUB & INCLOSURE 30+ YEARS BACK & SHE USED THE """ WRONG """ CLEANER ON IT.
SHE DIDN'T READ THE WARNING !!!

SO THE FADING OF THE INTERIOR SHOULD BE COVERED.SINCE IT WASNT STATED WHAT "" NOT "" TO USE.I WOULD CONTACT MCGUIRE'S SINCE THATS WHAT U USED.

If it is Distinctive Industries I sympathize with you. I bought a kit from them for my Chevelle and the seat covers faded BADLY in less than 6 months my car has Aztec Bronze interior and it faded to a cranberry red in that time. Mind you the car was driven 2-3 times a month for less than 3-4yrs at a time when this took place and it is in a full garage with no windows and covered with a car cover when not driven. Pictures were clear as day just til the seat forward like you were getting in the back seat and you could see where it was bronze and everywhere else turned to cranberry. They said they needed me to take them off the car and send them in so they could "inspect" them. I told them end me new ones and I will send your old ones back. That was my winter project and they started to fade before August. They were installed during March and April. Asked what I cleaned them with, I told them they have not been on long enough to get dirty. I haven't used anything. The door panels were garbage too the mylar accent strips fell off two sets of them.
Next time I will do legendary or full custom. The aggravation alone was not worth it. OPGI sold it but Distinctive made it. I understand that they are just a middle man so I did not hold it against them though I no longer buy from them for other reasons. Namely EVERYTIME I ask if the things I am ordering are instock and ready to ship and without fail 3 out of 20 items will be instock and everything else is on backorder. Wish you luck and hope your outcome is better than mine.
