Instantly addicted to 303

So I got some 303 Aerospace Protectant to try on some of the 94 RRC interior plastic parts that are a bit hazy and dull. Oh Em GEE! this stuff is Da Sheeyazzzz!!
If you hat Armor All and all the other silicone based snake oil, this is for you. You wipe it on, then buff it off. Leaves no tangible residue and the surface looks like new. No lie.
Expensive but worth it.
Go
buy
buff

Thanks Bill. I'd like to try it.
I see $28 on amazon. Is this what you found cost wise?

The stuff is the bomb. UV protection and does not collect dust. IMO the best product for the ST NAS cage foam and all things vinyl, plastic or pleather.

I got the gallon size on autogeek.net cz it is on sale plus there's a 20% off coupon so it was a deal.
Got the coupon code by googling "autogeek coupon"

Mark if you use it once you will want to use it on everything made of plastic or rubber. You should see the window rubber gaskets on the Loob. Like they were made yesterday, now. Discolored hazy old trim pieces look like they are new. No kidding. I would post pics but they just don't do justice to the transformation. Between this and the Leatherique leather restorer and Prestine Clean,http://www.leatherique.com I am wiping away years, no, decades of wear on the interior and exterior of the RRC. Now the only real detractor is the state of the rear carpet. Well, that and the bad paint, of course. It will elevate a normal interior to extraordinary whether old or new. Plus is doesn't look ghetto like Armor All and has no residue. The secret is in the buff out. Use lots of elbow grease and keep clean diapers going. I used paper towels and the rough surface left lint all over. When rubbed out it leaves a very satiny finish like new parts. Probably have to do it quarterly to maintain the finish.

i have found that all those wonder fixes only last a little while...then, back to normal....kinda like the tire shine shite that folks use on cars/trucks b4 a show.

basically shit gets old, leather etc - only way to keep it looking good is to look after it from day 1.

Amend. 28% off coupon code is 303FG.
Sale price $54.99 minus 28% $15.40 is $39.59 for gallon size.

Thanks for the endorsement, will give this a try. I have been meaning to do something about the stiffened leather on our BMW which suffered a night in the hands of a teenager - otherwise known as parked outside with the window open in the rain.

They claim that the stuff will restore cardboard-hard leather to suppleness, and I believe it would.
The two products MUST be used together. First soak the leather with the restorer. I mop it on with a patch of diaper. Let it sit for a day or so. Then you spray with the Prestine Clean and wipe away the residue. When dry the leather surface is soft and dry with no waxy feel.

I've been using it for a couple of years. It does not seem to last longer than anything else.

Yup, bought the two in a "kit". Will let you know how it works.

303 is available off the shelf from Canadian Tire up north. I bought a bunch of the spray bottles to take with me to Sudan a few years ago. I applied it every few months to the exterior plastic and to the dash, and in spite of the intense sun out there after two years my dash looks like new still.

You can use it also to polish GRP/fibreglas car bodies and it does great. The UV protection claim is no lie.

I ditched all my Armor All stuff a couple years ago in favor of 303 products. No more oily residue that attracts dirt, and it looks better.

The soft top cleaner is great too, and the fabric guard is far better than other products I've used as well. I applied the fabric guard to my Badger top last October, and it still beads water. Good stuff.

Nice tip. Amazon prime and one day later and the truck is looking good. Great product. Thanks!
