If you use 303 Aerospace from the start there’ll be no need to restore your trim.

I picked up a bottle of Solution Finish based on @Rick Astley ’s recommendation.

In doing some further research, I found a guy on YouTube who tests these products (waxes, ceramic coatings, plastic restorers, etc) for several years, providing a monthly update on what products work and fail. 6 months in, Solution Finish is doing well. (Skip to 3:55 if you are curious).

Good to know Rick isn’t a liar ;)

This is great stuff! Just don’t apply to areas you need to walk on- it’s insanely slippery.

I am excited to try their "Over The Top" on some vehicles before I take delivery of the Bronco and anticipate using this on my new vehicle!
I wish BroncoGuy was still around for advice on the MIC top...he had good input, and his old posts were removed when he departed.

I think, but not sure, the MIC material is a polyacetal engineered polymer. One of the MODs at BN said Ford's recommendation is "only use a mild soap and water solution on a soft cloth when cleaning plastic"....but I don't know if that applies to the MIC material.

Aside from washing, any insights on protectant products??

Once we know the material, then we can go to the detailing chemical manufacturers and ask for the solutions they think are best for that.
