We inherited a large fish tank made from commercial grade plexiglass. It is seamless, which means there is no view obstruction. We wanted to use it to give our growing fish population room to roam. However, when we cleaned it up, we found that improper cleaning in its previous life left the tank scratched and not very attractive. Being frugal creatures and in the midst of fish population explosion, we were not easily persuaded to abandon the tank to the dump. Instead, we decided to explore possible solutions.
After a few searches and some clicking around, we came across a web site promoting a product called 303 Aerospace Protectant. After reading everything at the site and finding a local retail outlet, we opted to try 303 Aerospace Protectant. The retailer where we went to purchase the 303 Aerospace Protectant looked at us a bit strangely when we told him what we wanted and how we intended to use it. They were a sports car specialty shop and they sold 303 Aerospace Protectant for fiberglass and vinyl top restoration. The salesman made a strange face when he said, “I’ve never heard of using it for that, but I guess it would work.” His lack of confidence did not deter us from giving it a try.
We paid $6.94 plus tax for 8 ounces of 303 Aerospace Protectant. We used less than 1/3 of a bottle to achieve excellent results on our fish tank. The big tank is now home to schools of our fishy friends and two “racing” snails who do still manage to keep a foothold on the slick sides of the tank. The product has not had any negative affect on them and we have seen baby swordtails and egad-baby snails in the months since its application.
Since acquiring our little bottle of 303 Aerospace Protectant, we have found that it works on shower doors, chrome, fiberglass, plexiglass of all kinds, spa covers, vinyl, leather, rubber, patio furniture, handbags, leather and even finished wood. Wow! What a product and why didn’t we know about it sooner. Apparently this “genie in a bottle” was originally developed for aerospace and aviation applications. It has UV protectant qualities, makes dirt slide off and prevents water spots. We treated our daughter’s motorcycle helmet and visor with it-no more scrubbing off bug bodies-just one quick wipe. The car interiors are our next project.
We highly recommend 303 Aerospace Protectant to all our friends. Just follow the easy directions and voila. 303 Aerospace Protectant has the added bonus of being environmentally safe-non-toxic, non-flammable and biodegradable-no petroleum distillates. Go Green!!! Get a bottle and see what you can do with it. It could save you a fist full of money. Have you ever priced a spa cover or a convertible top?
