My soft tops looks a little ruff

Is there a product that'll "restore the finish" ? It's black and a little faded, but what bothers me is the mildew I see when I get close up on it.

A diluted bleach wash would be a pretty stupid move, huh?

What about a tire foam that cleans and shines tires? Would that destroy the top?

Lastly- Quadratec has replacement tinted windows. Anybody got any experience with them?

They sell "soft top wash" at the local auto parts stores. It would be with the washes and waxes... I am not sure if this would take care of the mildew though. You may be ready for a new top. If your hardware is in good shape, it's not too expensive to buy just the top itself I don't think. Check Quadratec and 4wheelparts wholesalers.

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

I only have one bit of advice. Simple Green. Spray it on, let it sit a couple minutes, hose it off.

I've always used oxy-clean (the bottle form) with a dishwashing brush, works wonders. Just make sure you rinse it thoroughly.

depending on what type of top you have, the Bestop Replace-A-Top is a very reasonable. I bought mine for just under $350.00.
You can also get tinted windows, but their like an extra $150.00.
The top does come with clear windows.

I vote for Simple Green too. That stuff works wonders.
