I have always had good results with this product, its expensive but a local detailer uses it and turned me on to it. I have used RaggTop and the vinyl products http://www.wolfsteins.com/product-wolfsteins.htm

This may sound stupid... but for the last 50 years, I have used Johnsons Baby Oil...

Of course, have the top clean before applying anythinig to it...

I pour a little of the baby oil in the palm of my hand and rub it into the vinyl... it takes a little time to do it RIGHT...

But in all those years, I have NEVER had any issues with the vinyl tops on various cars and some of them I kept for over 20 years.

I always used Johnsons brand baby oil..

It costs a few cents more per bottle, but the other oils didn't have the same FEEL to my skin, and if they didn't feel good to ME... I didn't want them on my car.

What keeps it from streaking the windows when it rains?

I never had a problem with that...

You don't just pour a bunch of it on there and kinda wipe it off.

You use a little at a time and actually rub it, with your hand, till the vinly absorbs it.

I used to do mine at least once a year.. usually just before summer.

My cars used to sit outside and the Texas sun is pretty fierce... :)
