Fabric Convertable top
August 31, 2021
I was disapointed with the Ragg Top cleaner/protectant product (yes, I followed the instructions) So I wanted to try the 303 option. I bought the combo cleaner/protectant, just llike to Ragg Top, easy to apply but the water repellant I saw from the 303 was what I was looking for. I could blow the water off my convertable. I gave it 4 stars for how long it lasts (this is my second combo package from 303 but as I was washing the car, I noticed the beading had stopped. By now, I have to new package so i gave a new application (yes, I'm following instructions) One thing to note is, my car is a fair weather car, not my daily driver so it doesn't see the rain unless I get caught out. The results I saw from washing and not driving in bad weather should keep that protection going longer so I'll keep a close eye on how it performs going forward.

NEW 2019 MINI Convertible - results awesome
October 7, 2019
Initially worried. Cleaned and dried top. Spray, spray, spray. Oh, NO!!! Tiny bubbles all over my new top. Did I destroy the new top?? Not happy, I rubbed my gloved hand over the air bubbles, making it worse! Now I had chalky white froth. Kept rubbing and it all soaked in. Became "invisible" Final result - water beads off. Works fantastic. Second coat after re-wash a week later - the sprayer gummed up to the point it boarded on useless. Got the same initial miniature bubbles, then chalky froth after wiping to pop bubbles - eventually all soaked in and fantastic beading of water drops resulted.
Pros- Works like a champ - Water beads off - Invisible on my MINI Convertible Top (2019) (but, see Cons)
Cons- Miniature bubbles on application, turned to chalky white froth when rubbed to break-up the bubbles -eventually soaked in. Invisible after agitation and soak-in. - On second application, spray bottle trigger gummed up. Don't think I could use trigger a 3rd time.

I recently purchased the fabric kit and applied it a week ago. The first rain came and the top was full of wer beads shedding the rain. Clearly the product works. It is too soon to do a full rating in that it was just applied. Very easy to apply after cleaning the top. I read that it is supposed to last for up to 3 years, that remains to be seen.
ConsCareful covering of Windows and car paint. Just took a little time.

303 Fabric Convertible Top Kit
June 17, 2015
Very pleased with my purchase it did a fantastic job on my Corvette convertible top. Would definitely purchase again.
303 is better than Ragg Top
May 17, 2015
It has been my experience that the 303 product for convertible tops is far superior than its competition Ragg Top. I first used Ragg Top on my 2008 Mercedes Benz convertible. I followed the manufacturers directions to the letter. But after just a couple of weeks, the top would not bead up water after being rained on. So I purchased the 303 product and have had much better results My only complaint of the 303 kit is that the 16 oz. bottle of protectant is not enough to get three applications from.

Cloth Top Cleaner
April 27, 2015
The cloth top cleaner worked very well with a fine bristle nylon brush. No verdict yet on the water resistance spray application. Both were easy to apply. Just have to mask or block off glass and paint areas for the water proofing spray.
April 23, 2015
16fl. oz is not enough for all top buy 32oz. on the label on the bottle is written. 'COVERAGE 75-100 SQ FT (60X90SM) 16 FL OZ (473ML) on lightweight fabric; 40-75 sq ft (30-60sm) on heavier fabric depending on material and application method' you cannot change application method than change the quantity to 32 oz or 64 for double cross coverage . 303 part number 30606.

I have used this product before and always reorder when I need more. It does a great job in cleaning and waterproofing my convertible top. It does involve some work to protect the car from overspray (car exterior). Once it's all covered then the rest is easy.
ProsEasy to use and effective.
ConsOverspray must be removed from glass and car finish immediately.

Used to clean & seal a 3-yr old beige-color fabric convert top. Problems with top include scuffing of the fabric caused by fabric-on-fabric friction when the top is retracted and extended. These scuff areas are prone to dirt and stain. Using the 303 Fabric cleaner and applying with a horsehair brush by hand, the result was a clean top including the scuff areas (naturally the cleaning did not resolve the actual scuffs). After thoroughly drying, I applied the Protectant, actually a water repellant. It took the entire bottle to completely cover the top although I admit to a heavy hand and using a microfiber to smooth out coverage. It will take a rain storm and a few weeks exposure to evaluate how protective the Protectant is, will try to amend this review later.
ProsCleaner is effective, easy to use. Protectant is easy to apply, dries clear and even without spots or shadows.
ConsWill need more time and exposure of the top to the elements to evaluate effectiveness and durability.

When I purchased my 2000 BMW Z3 convertible dream car, I to make it look as new as possible. The previous owner took very good care of it but the top looked faded and when it rained the top soaked up the water like a sponge. Days of searching in our local auto stores, on the internet and even at a BMW dealership for the protectant I needed, I came across Autogeek.net. Within seconds I found a convertible top protectant in a kit at a price that seemed reasonable and had a great rating. I ordered the kit which was at my doorstep in a couple of days. I read the directions, used the cleaner, when dry I applied the protectant Application was simply and the top actually came out to a near new look. The next morning I poured a cap full of water on the top and wow! the water just rolled into a small bubble and did not soak in. I would recommend this kit to anyone with a convertible. Great product at a VERY reasonable price.
Cleaner Goes Far But Guard Doesn't on VW Beattle Convertible
August 15, 2014
The products were applied to the convertible top of our 2008 VW Beetle which is usually garaged. The top was in reasonably good condition. The surface estimate was approximately 24 square feet. The 303 cleaner was applied with the pump sprayer and gently scrubbed with large soft brush. It went on well. It took just about three of the 16 ounces in the container. It took two rinses after the wait period to clear the cleaner. The cleaner did not remove marks in the fabric where the top down folding creases occur. I expected that it would. To apply the Fabric Guard, I used a high quality 4 inch paint long by 1 inch diameter foam paint roller. The fluid was placed in a small plastic tray. I rolled the material on in small sections trying to get an even wet coat. The fabric absorbed nearly the entire 16 ounces in the container. I had hoped to get two applications out of the bottle based on the label description. We haven't had any rain to test the treatment as of yet. Depending on how the fabric repels rain and preserves the fabric, will determine if we will use the product again.
ProsProducts seemed to be easily to apply as mentioned above.
ConsNot enough fabric guard material. Almost 16 oz. absorbed for 24 sq. ft. of top. Expected to get two applications based on the label.

How to remove 303 from your paint
August 9, 2014
If you did not go go through the masking process and used the paint brush method, with the occasional drip, I found 91 percent isopropyl alcohol to be excellent for removing the dryer drips however, don't be too attached to your side 'pinstripes' as they will be gone too.

A good friend said I just had to try this kit to restore my 2007 tan convertible top. The top had some dark areas where the top had been in the "top down" mode as well as some staining from various tree droppings, etc. While the stains were reduced in the degree that one could see them, they were not taken away completely. The protectant, however, has done a good job of keeping rain and new stains off the top.
Proseasy to use, no foul smell, can do the top twice from one kit
Consdidn't remove all of the visible staining

Good for fabric Miata top
June 11, 2014
We put the fabric top protectant on with paint brushes. The previous sprayed on product (different brand) was difficult to apply and did not do well to waterproof the top. This product seems to have done much better, water beads up on the top nicely.
ProsEasy to brush on without creating a mess Waterproofs quite well
May 16, 2014
I liked everything about the product except the spray on feature. It took forever to spray on and very difficult to avoid overspray and get sufficient coverage at the same time. Would rate a 5 star if it could be brushed on
Really good produact
March 22, 2014
This stuff REALLY works. The cleaner may or may not be necessary, but the protectant is outstanding. IMPORTANT: use a brush to apply. Spraying is a mess.
ProsThe top looks better and repels water like crazy.
