I have used "Simple Green", it did a real good job but you DO NOT want to get it on the plastic windows. Get a scrub brush and go to work.

Aerospace 303. Stuff flat-out rocks. I use it on the soft top canvas (not windows...won't hurt em, but leaves a film), body, interior, bumpers. It'll keep the black plastic fenders from fading.

Most True Values carry it. I bought em out of the last batch, cuz I'm gonna start using it on my motorcycle, too.

The 303? Just spray it on and wipe it off. For the canvas on the soft top, I spray it over about a 2-foot-square area, spread it around with a rag and let it penetrate for a few mins, then wipe it clean with a dry rag.

For fenders, body, bumpers, interior I just spray on and wipe off. After a couple of applications, your bumpers (and any other plastics) will be practically immune to UV rays.

Awesome stuff.

This way is perfect. It took my used soft top from dull to AWESOME.
