    Hi all, my new '14 SRT has front-to-rear gray decal striping. The wide kind from front bumper all the across and down to the license plate. I want to keep these from cracking or deteriorating. Not sure if they can be waxed with protectants or what to use. Maybe they need no special care. I use strictly Zaino products. Anyone know for sure what to do, if anything? Thanks!

    I use Meguires Detail Spray on my SRT hood stripes. After 5 years, they look good as new. The spray, however, puts a low luster shine on them but they still look great.
