    What kind of cover do you have? Is it vinyl?

    If it's hard plastic then you may want something other than a dressing that will wash off in the rain.

    Duragloss 301 states, "Dries to a durable coating that will not wash off."

    I applied 303, 3m & Mothers Back to Black on tires, & tonneau cover. I can't tell any difference. Am I supposed to see any difference? Color wise there isn't any. Will one stay on longer, offer better protection?
