    I put 303 on the Black Plastic trim and it washes off as soon as it rains. I see posts where guys like it for Soft Toppers . I have a Pace Edward Metal cover - 303 washes off that too and 303 is what they recommend. Any reply or link appreciated.

    I use the 303 tire balm, not only on tires but the black trim on my truck and wife's SUV. I don't have a problem with it washing off with rain and usually will last a few (by hand) car washes.

    This stuff I hear is great.

    Thanks for the reply - I just have regular 303 - I'll try the Tire Balm or the Ceramic Trim - I watch Project Farm on Youtube all the time - thanks for the recommendation.

    Does it wash off? I never noticed.
    I've used it on:
    -soft top
    -tires
    -parts like dashboard (gets hit by sun)

    Why?
    -not too greasy
    -offers UV protection
    -seems to stay on for a decent amount of time
    -not that hard to apply to a clean surface. Apply, then buff with microfiber
    -leaves a nice looking matte finish/sheen that looks better than other stuff on things like tires and dashboard

    None... yet.
    I've used it for quite a lot of plastic, rubber, and vinyl cleaning/protecting. I've found it seems to last much longer if applied and allowed to sit in direct sunlight for a day or so. On items that are already quite faded, it's effects aren't nearly as noticeable though...

    If your cover is painted metal or fiberglass, just treat it like your body paint.

    I gave my 303 products away. To me they are fine for a quick doll up on the buy here pay here car lot.

    X2. 303 is a dressing which is why it rinses off in the rain. I got tired of it running down the paint after rain or heavy dew. For exterior plastics a coating like C4 is the way to go.
