Hey everyone,

We just put on a new top, that was a fun and interesting project. It's the first time I worked on my car, and didn't get any scraped knuckles. Anyway, so now that this new top is on (Vinyl) what kind of treatment should I give it? How do I wash it and anything rec'd to spray on it?

btw, that's not the new top in the pic

I clean mine with the same bucket of suds that I wash the car with. Then I put on a good coat of Armoral. It shines very nicely and seems to still be very flexible. If you have the vinal (black) hardtop also, I wash it the same way and use Mothers Back to Black. Just make sure it is completely dry before appling the Mothers.
