    Best dash and interior protectant

    with the summer heat upon us, what is the best product to protect our dash from UV and preventing future cracking or harm? (that ISNT silicone based, i HATE the greasy look or touch)

    Thanks

    All protect from UV, are easy to use, and leave a matte finish.

    Where can you find these? I used to use Black Magic's dashboard protectant with a nice matte finish, but it seems to have disappeared and now all that I can find is the glossy stuff.

    Well, I don't use many OTC products, and dash protectants are not one of them that I do use. I haven't been able to find an interior protectant locally that matches the satisfaction I get from my internet-purchased products.

    I agree, 303 works really well and looks good (not greasy). Looks good on tires also. I found it at my local REI store. It's used on rafting boats and stuff. Call ahead and see if your local store has it, as mine had to special order it.

    I bought 303 from my local tuner shop, and it's a whole lot better than armor all.

    does the 303 or poorboys work well for getting rid of dirt and scuffs? Thing is as an example, my dads truck, he works in construction so the interior gets dirty often. Recomend? Also my car, I've tried scrubbing some pieces with dawn and other to no avail.
    It's like I'm smoking their thoughts.

    Only on the web, unless you live near a major detailing supply distributor like Autogeek in Florida. Lots of places carry their products, but they're all online.

    303 Aerospace Protectant is strictly a protectant. It will not remove scuffs. I have had success with Poorboy's Trim Restorer for removing scuffs on door panels. Some people like to use the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser for door panel scuff removal, though I haven't tried it yet myself.
