Bestop Cleaner and Soft top Protectant has worked wonders for me. They have a special Vinyl window cleaner. Mild soap and a very soft cloth works just as well though.

Wash with mild soap and water. PlastX will buff out most of the scratches as long as they are not too deep. You can find it at most auto parts stores.

A lot of people use lemon pledge furniture polish to "wax" the plastic also.

Just don't use paper towels for wiping. Soft soft towels or cotton baby diapers.

Oddly enough, a mild rubbing compound for the body's paint did wonders for mine. They were super yellow and so scratched I didn't think I had any options other than a new top but this stuff gave me at least another couple of summers. I was amazed.

I use Meguiars PlastX, clear plastic cleaner and polish, used it on my ZJ's headlights which were really yellow and now are clear. Use one of those red foam balls in a rechargable drill, slow speed and not too hard. Got out those nasty marks from the side brackets that you get on the inside pretty well.

Keepin the peace.

The difference between sport and combat is that in combat you bury the one who comes in second.
