I think Team MasterCraft membership kits should include a bottle of 303.

and maybe the X-30 should be renamed the X-303

UPDATE!

just received a phone call from Roger at 303products, outstanding guy! (within an hour of my email)

he's wanting to learn more about Team MasterCraft, and I want to get him in contact with the right people.....

help me out guys, who do I need to send him to?

I see that altfootr used the contact of Jane Dunigan (jane.dunigan@mastercraft.com), but I don't know her or her role in Mastercraft.


I see Chris Wingo is the Team MasterCraft manager & Jason Boertje is the Corporate Communications Manager.

but do you guys have their email addresses?

303 is great for use as blinker fluid also, it's just a little hard to get in the blinking reservoir

The local off road and truck shop has smalll free samples on the counter (the size of a wet-nap). They seem to disappear the day they put them out though.

Since MC says not to use armor all, but says 303 is okay, my initial hunch is that it is not the same (unless they have a promo deal with 303). Supposedly Armor all dries out the vinyl.

Dennis was very clear on the phone that they are very different molecularly.

I did learn that the reason it is called 303 is because in the aviation field, everything has to be accounted for, absolutely everything.... if I remember right, 300 series is chemical products and the 200 series in aviation is for hardware series.... or something to that effect.... my notes say 300 series is the blueprint # for chemicals according to the aviation industry.

when this product came about, it was strictly for aviation

Also, 303 has an SPF of 40

the phone numbers on my caller ID this morning were
Roger Dyer 1-530-549-8233
Dennis ? 1-530-549-5617

in one of Roger's e-mails, he sent me a toll free number 1-800-223-4303
he went on to say questions or comments were very welcome, and he'd like to find out more about TMC's membership package



here's the second e-mail content
Since you expressed a technical interest in 303 A. Protectant, here's additional info one some of the subjects we touched on, FYI:

Vinyl:

Pamphlet: What you need to know about vinyl. We have the text posted on 303's website, address standard vinyl and clear vinyl (isinglass), here's that: http://www.303products.com/tech/index.cfm?fuseaction=feature.display&feature_id=18

One of 303's larger "vinyl" customers. About 30,000 sq. ft. of vinyl decal advertising surface per blimp. Purpose: Keeping the advertising area clean; UV screening. http://www.303products.com/tech/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&Product_ID=425

Gelcoat fiberglass:

General information....note the trick for trailered boats....to keep the gelcoat looking "showroom new" year after year, and negating the necessity of buffing and waxing: http://www.303products.com/tech/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&Product_ID=380

Detail: Using too much/not wiping it completely dry. Problem this causes and how to correct:
http://www.303products.com/tech/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&Product_ID=311

Boat Trailer Tires: We didn't talk about this use for 303 A. Protectant. Solves this very common problem shared by RVers and car collectors: http://www.303products.com/tech/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&Product_ID=378

thats what i thought about amor all too, that it dries stuff out. it just looks and smells so simalar that i though it may be the same ingredients. i like to use the 303 aboput once a week and the vinyl cleaner from meguirs everytime i use the boat .

I was told Amour All pulls the moisture out of the material to make it shine and after a while it cracks! It's ok for tires but not on my seats!! 303 is the S**T! :headbang:

Well, either y'all are terrific salesmen, or I'm a sucker 'cause I just ordered a couple bottles. I want to try it on the clearcoat. What do you think it might do for teak?

I started using it this summer and can't say enough good about what I saw. My only bad comment is myself and others nearly breaking our necks because it is so slippery!

Ends up one in my ski group buys it by the gallon and refills his spray jugs. Much cheaper. He gave me a quart bottle for gas :D fine with me!

I went to Lowe's and bought teak oil in the paint department and used it on my "82" deak of my SN it worked great it made my deck look great and lasted all year! I really don't know what it would do to the teak, the chemicals might affect the wood!

Rod, I did the same damn thing! My wife slid across the running boards and almost fell on her A**! That's funny I thought it was only me! :D

Slight jack....I'm putting my teak oil in spray bottle this summer, I can never pour it out without spilling everywhere! I'm tired of oil soaked rags.

I do it that way and it's great
wherever you do your oiling, be ready for overspray oil spots though.
AND, the teak oil eventually broke down the cheapo spray bottle I had to the point where it would no longer spray. Well worth the investment of a plastic bottle per year

Just pour a little into your hand and rub it in. You can rub your hand till it's dry. I don't like oiley rags either
