According to the website, this stuff is supposed to protect gelcoat from UV Damage. They say to use it in lieu of wax. I've heard that although the claim regarding UV Damage is true, 303 will not provide a shiny/polished appearance.

Has anyone used 303 in lieu of wax? What is your experience?

Thanks for the help.

Two motorhomes here, just watch and not apply to much or it will streak. Rewet it and redry and it will look fine.

Best,

Thanks for the feedback. I think I'll give it a try next month.

303 is good stuff; I use it too, but for rubber, vinyl and the like. I'm not sure if I'd use it as a wax replacement though.

I've tried so many different products, I can't count them anymore. My sales person (at our dealership) suggested ReNew 3000 by Environmental Product of America. I tried it and will never use anything else.

This product removed all of the black streaks and dirt plus it leaves a wax protection. Goes on like any spray wax. Use plenty of rags.

I agree with Jim...I use it all the time on rubber, vinyl, leather, etc. But I do NOT use it in place of wax for fiberglass or metal.
