Plastic - My plastic is 5 yrs old, the 303 hides the fading/imperfections a little bit better. I was surprised a week later the 303 took with the ICE being a wax. Thought I would have to wait it out or strip it, Nope - was fine.

Last forever inside not exposed to the elements.

Now I have to order it bulk instead of $14 for a spray bottle

303 from now on
303 is like Jeep crack

Terryhinsb Ok so I've done a bunch of online research on cordless hand held vacuums, and it would appear that almost no progress has been made on battery life from the old models I remember. That's too bad. Maybe I'll just buy a small shop vac, or use the ones at the self serve car washes.

That info on Aerospace 303 is Exactly the kind of info I was hoping for!

Barmanvarn I switched from armor all to ice. Love it.

Beastmaster I do pretty much like kbwwolf does and I also have a brush I picked up from my local auto parts store, it looks like an over sized tooth brush.

As far as the vacuum, I'd suggest a Black & Decker FLEX FHV1200 for $50-$60

Also, is there a good cordless hand held shop-vac that anyone can recommend? I had one or two years ago, but they were always weak and pretty much useless. I'm hoping technology has improved since then. I'm going to do a google search, but the amount of user proven knowledge on this board is staggering, so I thought I'd throw this out there, and maybe others can benefit from the answers as well.

Thanks, Terry
I clean mine at one of those self-wash places, and spray the jet of water up into the wheel wells to dislodge any crap. After that I take it home and use Aerospace 303 on just about everything...body, plastic fenders, soft top. Stuff's awesome...you can find it in most True Value hardwares stores or get it on Amazon. It'll keep your plastics from fading.

For the interior I use the Aerospace or Turtle Wax Ice. Don't use ArmorAll...it attracts dust and leaves an oily film. Ugh. Learned to avoid that junk from a lifetime of motorcycle riding...

I've got a plug-in, full-size Shop Vac, so I can't help you with a cordless version. Sounds like Pope AF Base in my garage when I fire it up, but it'll turn my Jeep inside-out if I want it to.
