Blackout Hood Vinyl

Never had a vehicle with vinyl decals before. How should we protect it? Wax? Sealant? 303 Aerospace?

Another ICE user. I like the car shiny, but am frankly a touch lazy when it comes to really detailing the thing, so the all in one really appeals to me - and it works well.

Thanks for the input. I tried ICE in the distant past with great results. I'll give it a shot

First time you use it on the vinyl, you may have to add a bit more. Not sure what happens, but it's almost as if it sucks some of it up. After that it glossed up nicely and last a lot longer than the black trim in terms of looking 'just treated.' After the first time I just treat it like the rest of the car and it's been fine.
