Question Ragtop/Softtop Care/Advice plz

May sound funny but.......how/what can I do to further protect my ragtop on my 04????? Help me out, Doc! I AM in AZ which is very brutal to anything plastic or soft in the summer especially (120 degrees tends to break things down...) Any ideas out there on what others have used and how about the other side of it, what about u all in COLD climates with a ragtop aside from garaging it, plz???
Last question...........how do u keep the friggin CATS OFF my ride cuz they sure as hell aren't MY pets and they love to scratch their claws on the ragtop and in turn jump on it and tear it up and I AM about to go postal here.... yes, I can shoot n itz not real neighborly nor legal to discharge a firearm in city limits for those wiseguys out there!!

bestop makes a bunch of cleaners and protectors for your soft top. as for the cats i have no clue, i know there is some kind of stuff to use to keep animals away. go to a pet store they should sell a repellent.

pet stores have repellents, but they stink.

if your looking to have some fun.. just hide nearby with a spray bottle of vinegar, or water (if you dont want vinegar on your ride) and squirt em.


if you got cash to blow, or have kids that could use it, go to walmart and get a supersoaker. blow em off the top lol
theyll get the point real quick.

get a dog

about the top though, the cleaners for the soft tops work well, keeps the windows clear. and lube the zippers, i've never had any problems just using wd40.
