Scotty Posted July 17, 2005 Report Share Posted July 17, 2005 I have found the most amazing protectant for my cloth top. My detail shop told me about it and I bought it six months ago and threw it on the shelf. I HAD noticed that my cloth top was soaking up water and becoming drenched. I had known that if the cloth gets wet it ROTS the underlayment and it spirals downward from there. So I tried it last week! Its raining out now and top is actually dry, water just sheets off of the top, water BEADS up aggressively and you can actually BLOW it off (my daughter likes that as its fun to watch the water scatter). The top STOPPED soaking up water! Try it, its $20 a can, make sure you shake it vigoursly for a long time. Clean the top with a soft brush in a random circular motion, using a good quality mild car wash, I used Maguires. Let it dry thoroughly in the sun. (IMPORTANT if not you will seal in dampness underneath) and follow the directions on the can. I just bought another can and will put a second coat on ASAP! Well, here is the solution to preserving your cloth tops, plus it brightens its color slightly if it looks sun dried to you. It looks healthy again. I would recommend buying 2 cans, if you hate it, I'll buy it from you and pay shipping! Wolfsteins, RAGGTOPP Fabric Protectant Pro-Series 1-800-377-4700, http://www.wolfsteins.com I rarely make a recommendation like this, but you will be amazed! (this sounds like a commercial, and NO I don't own stock in this company ) Early on sailors navigated by the stars at night and the North star became the symbol for finding ones way home. Once you know where the Northstar is you can point your ship in the right direction to get home. So the star became a symbol for finding ones way home or more symbolically even finding ones path in life. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
