Keep your convertible in tip top shape with 303 Fabric Convertible Top Kit!

In the beginning, all cars were convertibles. Not until 1914, when the Dodge Brothers come out with the first closed top car, did a car with a permanent top see the road. By 1925, sales of closed cars exceeded sales of open ones. This gave way to the production of more sedans. Apparently back in those days, canvas convertible tops were drafty and leaky. Too bad drivers back then didn’t have this Fabric Convertible Top Kit from 303, the renowned name behind the ever-popular Aerospace Protectant.

303 Aerospace protectant for convertible topsOne thing the convertible never lost was appeal. Once you drive a convertible, you feel the freedom, and a closed car just doesn’t equal that feeling. In order to keep your convertible in tip top shape, you need to use a cleaner and protectant which works to remove stains and dirt, and protect against UV rays that can fade the color of the fabric. The 303 Fabric Convertible Top Kit is the answer to everything. Here is what your kit includes:

16 oz. 303 Fabric/Vinyl Top Cleaner
This cleaner differs from other top cleaners, as it uses colloidal action to get the job done. Colloidal action was first used be scientists to break up particles in oil from oil slicks in our oceans. The oil literally would dissolve in the water. Think of this cleaning action in terms of the reaction of the atom in an atomic explosion. The atoms in the colloid lift, separate and hold in suspension the oils, grease, dust, and soils which have been penetrated. This breakthrough allows the ultra-wet water to hold grease, dirt, and oil in suspension, allowing them to dissolve within the water. This product is safe for all convertible tops, and also works wonders on fabric, velour, and carpeting. The 303 Convertible Top Cleaner is non-hazardous, non-flammable, and non-toxic. It is safe to use on tile, floors, doors, woodwork, ovens, and upholstery.

16 oz. 303 High Tech Fabric Guard
This product protects all new or cleaned “outdoor” fabrics from water, dirt, grease, and UV sun damage. Outdoor fabrics include canvas convertible tops, cloth automobile seats and carpets, biminis, and boating enclosures. 303 High Tech Guard also resists soiling and mildew formation, by restoring an effective level of lost water repellency. There are no silicones within the product, and if you have used a silicone product before you know it does repel water. That’s about it though. Silicone treated fabric lasts on average 2-3 months, as compared to High Tech Guard that protects for up to three years. Silicone has that harsh, pungent smell; whereas High Tech Guard has a mild, clean odor. Most importantly, High Tech Guard is recommended by industry leaders that include AMCO Convertible Fabrics, Winnebago, Orvis, Thor, Sunbrella and Walt Disney World…and Autogeek! One treatment can last up to three years.

Application Tip: 303 recommends cleaning the convertible top twice using a brush before applying the protectant. The surface should be as clean as possible to allow the protectant to bond properly.

Use these products on your convertible top and you will understand why 303 is the cleaner and protectant of choice all over the world. Here is a couple questions and answers we have provided about this Kit:

Q: How long will my High Tech Fabric Guard last?

A: Once applied, you should not have to treat your convertible top again for another three years. The beauty of this product is that it can be used on your boating equipment as well, including sails, sailbags, boat covers, and all enclosures.

Convertibles are a symbol of freedom and style. Brush up on your history with these fun facts:

Autogeek’s Fun Convertible Facts

1. Other names for the convertible include phaeton and cabriolet. The term “cabriolet” is favored in Europe, whereas “convertible” is favored in the USA.

2. The Depression, beginning in 1929, drastically hurt the convertible industry, but ironically it was the years during the Depression that saw the emergence of some of the most extravagant convertibles ever. Cadillac and Chrysler and Auburn were three companies that produced these models in low numbers.

3. MG’s, Austin-Healeys, and Jaguars heated up the convertible scene in the 1950’s. Convertible sales then reached 5% of the market.

4. In 1976, due to a tremendous slide in sales, Cadillac branded the Eldorado, “the last convertible car in America”. Thank heaven that wasn’t the end!

5. Lee Iacocca improved the image of Chrysler in 1982 with the introduction of the LeBaron convertible. He had hoped for 3,000 sales that year, instead he was blessed with 23,000.

Fabric Convertable top
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
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.
great product
Great product, top like new
