Default The Official "Best Rag Top / Convertible Top Care" Thread

Does anyone have experience with cleaning rag top mustangs? We just purchase an 2006 convertible and I really want to keep her clean and protected. Any suggestions would be great.

I have a 1998 convertible. I bought a top cleaner and did see any difference between the top cleaner and just washing it with a good car wash. The original top lasted ten years and the car was an outdoor car. I was told by multiple places the generally you only get 5 yrs out of a top when th ecar is out doors. So normal washing and drying have worked for me.

RAGGTOPP is a good product, also 303 convertible top cleaner and protectant do a good job...

First off, welcome to the forums! You can use armor all. I used to use a convertible top cleaner/protector that I bought from Advance Auto that did a nice job, but I cannot remember the brand name. There are several products out there that do well on the tops.

Hiya, welcome to the site. You can use Armor All, just know it'll probably wash down when it rains. I'd use a convertible top treatment instead.

Default Convertible Top Cleaner

I had a white top that I just used mild soap and water on to clean. Did a good job. Soft bristle brush helps out, also. I've been told to use Scotchguard on a top to help protect/condition it. Does anyone know if this is true?

Default Ragtop Maintenance

When I was detailing used cars for Ayers Chevy up in Edmond about 30 years ago, we would dress the top with Turtle Wax brand Tire Wax. The stuff came in 5 gallon buckets with a pump on top to dispense. Although it did not say Turtle Wax, it was identical with the tire wax in the green bottle at the auto parts store. Chemistry for auto reconditioning has change so much since then, Its like comparing WW II with Iraq. One of the advertisers on this site A1Auto has a link for convertible tops and the top cleaner and conditioner they sell is probably the best stuff I have used in 30 years.
As a side note, most of the "protectorants" that are used for tires and under the hood are to strong and will cause breakdown of the material that todays' tops are made of.

RAGGTOP to clean and treat it and 303 to maintain it ... 303 will keep nice and black and will repel water and dirt ... very very easy to take care of!!! also use 303 on leather and rubber. Great product!!!
