303

Recommended Posts

I have read all kinds of good and bad things about 303. What is the concensus? Should I use it on my vinyl, gelcoat or what? I ordered some from overtons, and I'm going to detail the boat this weekend. Any help would be appreciated.

Wax - I use Meguires #26 yellow wax, and Meguires cleaner wax

For between waxings I wipe down with the Meguires detail spray

definitely use it on vinyl (frequently!)

I'm not a fan of it on the gelcoat.

It is great on vinyl, but I think works horribly on glass since if you don't apply it just right it streaks to no end.

What should I use for the gelcoat?

In my best Homer voice, "Mmmmm, Carnuba". Biggrin.gif

...or try some meguires flagship marine premium wax (black bottle(. It brings out a really nice deep shine.

303 is for the vinyl!

Use a good quality wax. Heck, Nu Finish even works well on Fiberglass. Consumer Reports use to rank it pretty high.

I've use Zano and it works great, just a lot of prep.

Oh, and for quick touch ups and light cleaning Maguires Quick Detail Mist is the bomb Blowup.gif

my bet is all those detail sprays are about the same - I know for example that meguires has two - the quick detail spray and something in the grey bottle (different name same purpose) and they even smell the same ;-)

The detail spray also works good for cleaning dust & bugs off the tower etc, after towing

303 works great for the vinyl. Their cleaner and fabric guard (makes older sunbrella bead water again, like it was new) is great too.

Mods, please remove if inappropriate.... My brother-in-law sells it cheaper than anyone I know of - his contact info is at http://www.gocovers.com. Just tell him you found out about it from the Malibu owner's site.

I never tried their coverguard, nice to know it works. I think I am going to have to give it a try. Thanks Jc

I think I remember you posting that on the website formerly known as MBO. :)
