Clean Hard Top

A couple of years ago, I got some North Dakota mud all over my black hard top. Since then, "dingy" is an understatement. I've tried several things (Armor All, Dawn, etc.) to clean the top to get back to black, but no joy. Does anyone have any suggestions? Many thanks!

Have you tried Simple Green with a brush after letting it sit a bit. Then you can finish it off with Back to Black or Forever Black once it is clean.

I use a spray called Awesome and it has worked on everything I've ever had to clean.

Yep. its called LA's Awesome cleaner.

Takes all dirt and grime off, most of the time without scrubbing.

If its baked on, spray it with awesome and let it sit for a few minutes, works best on a dry surface.
