All of the various technigues out there around this are interesting. Some put the Armor-All on first and then the Tru-oil in very thin coats and only rubbing in one direction with the grain. There is one description where they mix the Tru-oil and Armor-All 1:1 in small quantities. What's so weird about it is they say Armor-All has something that acts as a fast catalyst for the Tru-oil (about 60 seconds if done very sparingly) but it also contains silicone which seems a strange thing to mix. If you look around the web you will see some incredibly thick high gloss finishes done this way. Besides the speed of just putting it on, the second best thing may be the ability to repair anything easily unlike the polys.
