2013 premium top UV protection?

On my boat bimini's (which is a fabric top) I use formula 303 protectant. I also use it on the vinyl. It's been great over 8 years of protection.

On my JKU I've been using it on the leather/vinyl seats and interior/exterior plastics.

Anybody have any ideas if that would be the best UV protection for the new premium fabric top? I didn't get any instructions on cleaning/maintaining this top since I picked it up on Craig's list.

I have been wondering about this too. 303 does make some fabric products:
303® Fabric Convertible Top Kit
303® High Tech Fabric Guard

I haven't used these but I do use the 303 Aerospace Protectant on some stuff. How has it been on the leather seats?

I just use a spray can aerosol fabric waterproofer on my boat fabric covers/bimini and it works well but not sure if I trust it on an expensive premium soft top.

Per other posts on here I used the 303 Aerospace Protectant on '13 Premium Top and it looks good. Also based on other posts I've ordered the 303 Fabric Guard for my seats

IMHO it works great on the seats. I hit them probably every other week during top off season. Maybe once a month during the winter. They stay looking really nice. Longevity wise it's too soon to tell. Give me 10 years and ill let you know ;-)

No need to monkey around, just use one of the flavors of 303. I only use 303 for my boat, motorhome and ATVs - just no reason to keep other stuff around.
