The kit of a cleaner and water proofer from MB is very good at £25,,enough for 2 goes, there are others on the market

I've recently used the Autoglym kit - cleaner, sponge and reproofer. Can highly recommend.

We use that black stuff that you use on your wheels for ours, I can't recall the name of it, but I'm sure you know the stuff I mean. Works fine on our tonneau so I'm sure it would work on any soft top :)

Now I wait for someone to correct me and say nooooooo don't use that stuff :p

Frequency?

How often should a soft top be cleaned/reproofed?

I have been using mine for 5 years now (although the car is garaged and I use the hard top 6 months per year). :confused:

I think that is the same question as how often should I have my hair cut,,, with the roof, when the rain stops forming in bubbles, that is the time to waterproof it,, when it looses the deep even colour,,that the time to clean it.

And I will have a hair cut next week and waterproof it

thank you all for your advice. Just popped into the MB garage and they ordered the claening kit for me, and only charged £9.75.

thanks again..:)
