    Refinish Restorer
    Had two Chetty Avalanches, all that black plastic on the sails and bed panels would start to turn grey. One coat with the refinish restorer would bring it back to looking like new then about every 2 years after that a quick wipe to keep it that way.

    I was turned onto the 303 by a boat forum. Those guys all swear by the stuff. I have found it to be good as well in my limited experience. Pretty much works for anything exposed to the sun.

    Yep I started with 303and really liked it. Then I found waxaddict and it was even better and lasts much longer. I still use the 303 on the interior.

    Do any of the products mentioned help remove white overspray from
    Black plastic? My girls Lexus has a few spots but I don’t wanna use somehting too harsh that will permanently discolor or texture the body part
