I started using 303 because of the SPF factor. I've been using 303 for years... keeps my top looking like new.

I used the Raggtop cleaner and protectant today and my top looks brand new... Great product I would recommend it to anyone looking to purchase a cleaner/protectant.

I use 303 and yes, it can leak onto the windows and body work after raining but I think I may have applied it improperly...i.e. not wiping it dry thoroughly and overspraying.

porsche has a VERY good softtop treatment. it comes in an aerosol can and you spray it on the top. water pretty much just beads off and rolls right off. although its VERY tricky to use. if you arent careful it can leave an overspray on your windows and paint. the key is to mask it off..but the results are outstanding

Yes it does run off and leaves a residue. Go with the Raggtop I know I was glad I switched to it!

If the 303 runs in the rain, it's because it was applied too heavily. Never spray it directly on the top, you'll never be able to get enough out. Spray a little on a towel or foam applicator and lightly wipe it onto the top.

both are great products. when applied correctly, neither should run.

raggtop does tend to bead water more.

I tend to prefer 303 because you can also use it on things other than your top.
