Thank you


Aerospace 303 has a kit and ragg top has a kit, Iíve tried both. Aerospace 303 is my choice. Itís has worked great for me. Repels water like no other, easy to apply. Just make sure your windows are covered when you apply the protectant (this is the case with ragg top or 303) or else it will be a pain to get off your windows if it dries.

I use 303 multi-surface cleaner and a horsehair brush (like you would use for shining shoes). I don't necessarily wash the top every time I wash the car, but do give it a good spray down.

303 Fabric Guard about once a year, usually in the Fall, as a protection treatment. Definitely can tell it's worn away after 7-8 months, but I don't have the time to do it more frequently. You have to protect everything you don't want that stuff on, but it's not too bad to cover/tape parts of the car to do it. Spray that onto the top and let dry into the fabric. Essentially like putting a rain protective coating on the fabric fibers and light sprays of water just roll off the top like a freshly Rain-X windshield. More heavy rain still soaks in, but not nearly as much.
