Prolonging the life of your soft top

To prolong the life of your car hood, you should always store the car with the hood up; never leave your soft top down when it is wet as mould and shrinkage will occur.

Other maintenance tips include:
  • Keep your new soft top in the CLOSED position for a minimum of three days to allow the material to stretch to the correct tension.
  • NEVER use a jet wash/car wash to clean the soft top.
  • NEVER store the soft top in the open position for long periods of time or when the soft top is wet.
  • Avoid long periods of inactivity of the mechanism as this can cause the frame to seize.
  • If you have a VINYL soft top - Clean with a soft damp cloth using diluted mild detergent such as washing up liquid.
  • If you have a MOHAIR soft top - Clean with a soft clothes brush to remove the dust and use a damp cloth diluted mild detergent such as washing up liquid to remove stains.

And finally……never use a cloth containing lint to clean a mohair.
