As to how often to protect there are so many variables like waxing a vehicle. Rule of thumb when the sealant fails to repell the rain on the fabric repeat the sealant

303 can be found here. Although the AG kit is only £8.99 (retail £19.99) from your rep.

Cheers for the info, makes sense on the re-application. I will get an AG one for now if I buy the car.

The protectants repel water for a short while and make the water bead up, but after a while it won't do this much.
If your protectant is working, your hood will be damp when wet (regardless of beading), if the protectant is gone, the hood becomes sopping wet.
Re-proof the hood when it needs it.

Cheers, I didnt buy the car in the end, very long story. So chances are it will be a normal in top car for my daily drive replacement.

Out of intrest the guy who was selling the car told me I could not use anything on the hood as it was Mohair?

Meguiars Plastix is THE best polish for the rear window I have tried, put some on a polishing pad with the PC and it really works a treat.

As for the car I would try 303 protectant, I have tried autoglym but it didn't last long.
