Application (Canvas Cleaner) - It is recommended that approximately 500ml of product is sufficient to clean a top for a 2 seater car. The canvas soft top must be colourfast so test on an inconspicuous area first, to ensure fabric dye does not run. Do not apply the cleaner in direct sunlight as drying time will be to fast preventing the cleaner from working properly.
Lightly dampen the surface of the soft top then starting in the middle and working towards the edges, apply the cleaner with a clean paintbrush taking care not to spill any onto the vehicles paintwork. Leave for 15 minutes at allow the cleaner to penetrate the canvas then gently scrub using hot water and a stiff brush to loosen dirt and grime.
Complete the process by rinsing well with clean cold water and allowing to dry. It is recommended that the canvas is then restored using Canvas Restorer and/or sealed and protected using Protex Canvas Waterproofer.
Application (Canvas Waterproofer) - It is recommended that approximately 500ml of product is sufficient to waterproof a top for a 2 seater car. It is best to apply the product in cool/overcast conditions so that drying time is not too fast and to avoid causing an uneven finish. Shake the bottle well and decant sufficient product into a separate container to apply to the soft top.
Starting in the middle and working towards the edges, apply the waterproofer with a clean paintbrush. Avoid spilling any onto the vehicle's paintwork. Leave for 3 hours to allow the waterproofer to dry and if required recoat again allowing 3 hours drying time.
Do not expose to moisture until the proofer has completely dried. It is recommended that the canvas is sealed and protected using Protex Canvas Waterproofer every six months.
Testimonial - "Really great products. They all worked perfectly in restoring my convertible hood to look like new again. Very easy to use and they did what they said they would. Follow the instructions and you should get great results. I had enough of each of the products to do a standard size convertible top. The waterproofing now beads in the rain like the polish on my paintwork. Very happy."
