Refit: Waterproofing Canvass: Products?

All-- stripped all the bird poop off Blue Bimini and grim--- degreased it and now it is ready for a Waterproofing Spray Down... Suggestions on Products? I hear that 303 Aerospace HT FABRIC GUARD is recommended from Sunbrella.... not too shabby @ $50 a whole gallon on Amazon...

Any other recommendations?

I TSP'd the sail covers and dodgers to get all of the grime and dirt off (not to mention the foul droppings from Marina Gulls about). Boy-- that stuff, in small quantities, sure helped lift a lot of dirt and grime!! Sails looked nicely washed and dried. I bought the 303 Fabric Guard and sprayed it on all Fabric-- very nice!! It actually darkened the fabric to make it look even newer than it is! It's petroleum based-- so it will eventually bleed out-- but at least the next 12 months we will enjoy the UV protection this sacrificial cloth is providing!! Thank you all for your advice!! Ping me if you'd like to see a photo... Headed to the boat this weekend!
