I'm thinking of using 303 protectant for the dash and other trim pieces. Any other suggestions?

I used to use it but found it would wash off far too easily, show streaks, and not last long at all. For exterior black trim I use Mothers Back to Black which lasts much longer.

Excellent product but expensive in my book. I used it exclusively until this:

I thank Satinsiver for making me aware of this product.

Great to see you on here Rick. You've helped me with a ton of detailing knowledge over the years starting on the Accord forum. So thank you also. thumbsup

I bought it once and hated it. My bottle of plain jane Armor All blew it away.

I'm going to buy a bottle of Chemical Guys New Car Shine Premium Dressing and see how I like it.

I have only bought it once. It was "okay." It did a good job restoring the rubber on wore out windshield wipers.

Here is another option that I've heard good things about:

nextzett 92470515 Cockpit Premium

I might be giving this a try soon, alternatively 3M Leather and Vinyl Restorer.

I tried it and wasn't overly impressed. I will stick with Mothers VLR.

I use Griot's Interior Detailer on my wife's car - it leaves a natural finish with no shine.

I use Meguiar's Ultimate Interior Detailer in my car - makes the black pieces pop with a nice uniform shine.

Be a BOSS and get the 338 ounce option. smile

Prob works out better on the per ounce price.

I'm a fan. I've used it for 15 years. I only use it on the dash/interior trim. I use other products for exterior trim and tires.

I use 303 on all the plastic and rubber on my '15 Canyon, as it sits outside 24/7. Still looking great.
