    I'll press!

    I'll even drive down after the 16th (since I'll have time) and offer some form of bribe.

    Does anyone know if the Armor All works makes a difference on black granite also?

    I see that armor all protectant produced in 3 versions
    1) original
    2) gloss finish
    3) mat finish
    Which version gives better contrast on black marble?
    Also works on granite?

    I have only used the original Armor All so I don't know if the other two work work.

    Thanks for sharing! Guess I need to do some shopping, had moved from ArmorAll to Vinylex for the vehicles, but will do some testing with the Vinylex too!

    I have used armor all protectant gloss because original is not available in europe only matt & gloss protectant are available
    and iam not seeing any difference like more white or enhanced contrast.
    In what black marble the more white/contrast has been observed ?
    Maybe the reason is the material iam using and no armor all protectant.
    I have ordered armor all original protectant from US because that is not available to EU and i will post my results with original protectant..

    Has this tip not been posted before? I used this technique well over 10 years ago when engraving some black marble trophy bases and I don't think I am clever enough to have worked it out myself!
