I am after some protectant for my S2000 roof. Want something to make the water bead off it.

Anyone know of some good stuff that is easy to find. 303 protectant has been recommended but its over £25 a bottle, bit expensive.

I used 303, works great and was worth the extra, I tried some other tosh from halfrauds that was toilet.

I Might be needing some 303 again in the not too distant future ;)

yeah it did, but that didnt last, it went back to very slightly faded black after it dried although it looked cool with mad droplets of water on it, hard to explain really without piccies :p

The thing that seems to get rave reviews over on the boxster forums, tends to be the 3M Scotchgaurd spray. Its the green bottle that is used on tents and stuff.

I use it myself, one bottle is about a fiver, and it will do the hood twice. It really does help the water to bead off nicely.

I've bought a bunch of raggtop, but I need a convertible first.... hehe

I need something to waterproof the carpets too, was thinking of getting scotchguard for that.

I just bought a full kit from the auction site which was recommended on one of my other hairdressers forums. It's branded Jaguar but apparently it's same as the Renovo kit, cost about £14. There should be plenty to do both the MGF and Elise so I'll let you know how it goes.

What does treating the roof actually achieve? I ask as I've never treated mine and am wondering if I should.

Stops it fading as it protects from UV light damage. Also it stops water soaking into the material.

This is why the Elise isn't a hairdressers car, you can't even fit a tub of gel in the boot whereas you can get the contents of a Toni and Guy salon in the boot of an MGF, it's massive in comparison

You should check the boot on a mk3 MR2! At least the Elise has a boot.
