You can but I'm not sure if it helps or hurts the vinyl. They material you put on your paint is not intended for vinyl. Just polish the paint and detail the edges of the decals when you are done

I use Zaino on my stripes as well as my paint.
The stripes won't shine up like the paint does, but it won't hurt.

I've read on camaro5.com that Turtle Wax Ice (Liquid form) and Meguiar's Tech Wax 2 are OK. Stay away from Carnuba. I've used the Mequiar's - it seems
OK. I'm gonna try Ice next.

Been using Zaino for ages, and it is without hesitation, the very best of all the products I have ever used on cars. Love that stuff. My SSR was black and it made it look perfect every time. I also tried the "Ice" product, no contest....Zaino won, hands down. The have lots of products, but I like the polish.

On vinyl stripes or just on paint? I use Zaino as well, but I have no stripes

Do not use WAX, use Polish. There are other threads that people actually used wax and it is leaving white spots on the vinyl. I have used Zaino since about 97 or so and wont use anything else

Actually the companies that sell the stripes sell a type of wax/creme for the stripes. I got some for mine However your traditional car wax will work as well to a point I was told.
Keep in mind if you have Matte stripes they will gloss up a little when you wax them.
