blueroo I've used Brasso to clean Tim's windows and it works great once you get past the fact you're about to apply brass metal polish to plastic windows.

Excellent. Thanks!

Touchless Washing Okay!

Hey, oldgus, I've been running my 2004 Unlimited through the touchless automatic wash since the day after I brought it home (nearly four years ago). It's not a problem at all.

G54 Would taking the Jeep to a laser wash hurt the plastic windows or soft top? In case you don't know what that is, it's a touchless wash that sprays your vehicle with soap and then pressure washes it. I have a card for a bunch of free washes I got for my birthday but I'm not sure if I should go there once the soft top goes on.

I guess if nothing else I'd find out if it leaks.

soupy1957 Talk about "winter storage" of the plastic windows some more, Vin211....

When I brought home my 2008 in November (I'm in New England), I had the Hard Top put on by the dealer, and the soft top is in storage in my garage, til Spring.

The Rag Top itself, is standing up along the side wall of the garage, and the window sections are in a long cardboard box, standing unrolled in the box.

What storage issues are the most significant, with the Rag Top and its sections? I would presume "keeping the plastic windows from anything that could scratch them, would be the biggest thing, yes?)

vin211 What I do because its the winter is bring the plastic windows inside, let them get warm to the room temp. I have this stuff that I have used on my old convertible top a couple of years ago to clean the back plastic window.

Took the scratches right out and cleared the window up. Next, I would get one of those window storage duffle bags and store them away for the winter.

Then, if you have a crappy pair of plastic windows, throw them on for the winter or place the hard top on like I do.

Presto, problem solvo.

soupy1957 Someone in here, and I don't happen to recall "who" it was, recommended Windshield Washer solution ("Winter version") and a soft cloth....

Cleaning Soft Top Windows

I just had a revelation. For as long as I have been cleaning plastic airplane windows, I never thought of using those products or techniques on my heep. But today I just randomly thought about it. We use a product called Prist (not the fuel additive) to clean our windows. It is awesome will not haze plastic at all.
