I've always used 303... but I'm willing to try something better (if there is something)?

You might watch this. They show first hand how some do.

EXCUSE his grill. It's about Trim restoration. ;)

The second one has 2nd fender results.

The overall better one was the Cerakote hands down.

So has anyone used both 303 and Cerakote first hand and know the results between them?

They did now include 303 when they did all the brands.

Here’s a vote for cerakote wipes. Put them on wife’s flares in October and they still look fresh. Not quite a wet look? but shinier than stock.
You have to be careful to clean everything before applying and having good lighting to make sure you get an even application because it will last a long time after it dries. I have some marks on my door handle I can’t get off because I didn’t clean well enough before applying :headbang:
I only used a couple wipes per side and did all plastic trim basically.
I used 303 on my rolling hard bed topper and didn’t seem to last at all, though those are different surfaces.

So many products... so many recommendations... Which is why I often through my hands up and do nothing, interior products too, leather products too... UGH.

Having said that, this guy has a 6 month review of 25 products.
