on my '70 le sabre i used armor all in the past.. now i use lanolin leather conditioner (armor all leather cleaner or mothers or any lanolin content). the lanolin will keep the vinyl from drying out; hopefully revitalizing the top.

the kid's shirt paint might make a good vinyl seal kit; i used it on my dad's riviera landau.
