In Reply to: What is the best way to clean the convertible tops posted by CGC on November 06, 2000 at 07:24:24:

I use the Porsche Cabrio top cleaner and the Porsche Tequipment waterproofer from the cleaner works very well on my beige top and the waterproofer is good as well-kind of a pain cause it recommends masking off the plastic window and the paint and glass windows to protect from overspray. I do the masking while the roof dries from the cleaner.
Also available at a Porsche dealer parts counter.
My top is only 8 months old, but here in Hawaii there is a lot of airborne dirt due to the strong trade winds and red volcanic dirt. I also use a lint roller every week before washing the car and use the 50 cent vacuum at the gas station to vacuum the convertible top as well as the interior.

I got the outside of the car taken care of (man I love Zaino) but what I'm a little leery of is cleaning the convertible top of this thing. Whoever owned it before us didn't take too good at taking care of this thing since there is slight mildewing....I'm a little anal when it comes to the cars, so may of you probably wouldn't see it until you were right up on the car.

Anyways....what would you guys use to clean your tops....and also, what do you use to water proof them as well (if you treat them for this at all).

Thanks for all the help.
I'm driving the hell out of this car guys....loving it....just loving it!
