Convertible tops for the most part are made out of vinyl or vinyl-like material, usually with some sort of texture. Treat it as you would any vinyl surface.
Tools & Chemicals:
Mild Detergent, Water, Cleaning Cloth, Soft-Bristle Brush, Ammonia, Vinyl Cleaner.
- For regular cleaning use mild detergent, water and a soft cloth or sponge. Vinyl is quite tough and can take a lot of cleanings which will keep the top looking good.
- If dirt and grime is heavier use a soft-bristle brush to loosen from deeper in the textured surface.
- You can also use a solution of ammonia and water applied with a sponge. Keep the solution mild and rinse off with clean water. Only do this once or twice a year.
- Of course, there are many commercial products that will clean and condition vinyl tops such as â€œArmor Allâ€
Vinyl has plasticizers which keep it supple. Excess oils, harsh detergents and solvents will harden and crack vinyl surfaces
