That reminds me. I sent in for the sample pack months ago and never received it. How long should it take?

I ordered the 303 Protectant and Cleaner, they sent me a free 32 ounce fabric gaurd and trials of everything...It took me 10 days to receive it...I read literature that came with order and it states that if you send your $5.00 to get the free sample kit , it takes two weeks...so I would call them...

Moderator: I do not have any connection to the products other than as a consumer. I included the picture to just show the items provided in the free sample package. Feel free to edit the post if it crosses the line as far as advertising is concerned.


I ordered this package a few months ago and have been very impressed with the products...and for 5 bucks, how can you beat it?

I sent them an email with a copy of the cashed check after 4 weeks. I got in the mail that week.

I have had good luck with 2001 as a wax for my MH I used to use it on my boat and it woul last for a year. I am having the same luck on the MH. Use a good cleaner to get the fiberglass stripped and cleaned then put on the wax staying away from the decals finish up with the 313.


Can you use the 303 all over and not use any other wax product ???? Also it's impossible not to overlap the graphic area you put the 303 on and the area you wax. Is that Ok to mix ???

A couple of questions came up about the 303 and graphics. 1st I do not know if all graphics are vinyl. O was told by the man that re stripped the front of mine not to wax them. As I understand it the 303 is made to use over petrolieum based products such as the graphics it is also good for use on tires and other rubber produts. It is almost impossible not to overlap but I try to stay shoryt of the graphics with the wax and then put the 303 on. Its a PIA but my graphics are 17 years old last year we replaced the front only and the match was near perfect. Must be doing something right.

Is Nu finish still a top choice? If I recall it's synthetic, so is it decal safe?

go to a marina & get some paste "boat wax"...it's the best for fiberglass gel coats.

Avoid concentrated cleaner ohen the decals when washing off the bugs and road grime. This will kill the decals. I use rv/marine wax from Meguiars. I get it from marine supply stores... works great!!!
