I just use normal car wash soap. I've heard Amour All is not recommended for soft tops- has anyone else heard this?



Mine's still looks great after 3+ years of Washington rain!

The .com takes you to a dental place, the .net takes you a site in Japanese.

Re: Convertible Top Cleaning

This was a subject before. In my town of Modesto I was unable to get a product called "RaggTopp". It has a cleaner and a conditioner and is supposedly the best since sliced bread. So I went to my favorite car detailer "Car Pretty" and asked the owner who is a friend what should I use on my 04 and he sold me the product he uses called "Blue 2000". After I have washed my car and top with Blue Coral and let dry I spread Blue 2000 on with a with gym sock, which isn't white any more.

It works for me and the rest of my friends.

I use Meguiars Soft Top cleaner. Its sold at any auto store, and honestly does work. They sell it for light, medium, and dark tops I believe. I have a tan/saddle colored top.

It honestly works really well. Spraying it on and then scrubbing with a soft bristle brush. Wiping it away reveals a bunch of dirt and grime and restores the color nicely.

Black with saddle 1996 Mustang GT convertible. Manual. NPI, 2v 4.6L. Full bolt-ons.
