I've cleaned and applied the recommended 303 protectant several times since I had it replaced. As with many things, maintenance is the key to its longevity.

Yes, it did do a good job protecting the paint. But every year it starts looking pretty ugly. So far I have only had a couple spots of clear coat come off and the paint looks really good.
