“I have a nearly new black mohair roof on a 1998 VW golf cabriolet. The original roof to the car would have been blue. Will your Soft Top Reviver RE-COLOUR from black to a navy blue?”
Thank you for the enquiry!
It is possible to change the colour of your soft top from blue to black using Renovo Soft Top Reviver. However, the reverse is much more tricky, as it is easier to change from a lighter colour to a darker colour.
I am not 100% confident that you will be able to successfully complete this colour changing process, and would strongly recommend that if you do wish to attempt it, then you should use the Reviver on a small inconspicuous area of the top first!
The Soft Top Reviver was developed to bring back the original colour, not change the colour and consequently there are risks involved with this process. It is not reversible and can take more than the two recommended coats but not more than three.
It is imperative that the top is cleaned thoroughly, ensuring that any previously applied proofing product is removed, before applying the Soft Top Reviver. Renovo Fabric Soft Top Cleaner will remove most proofers if the severely soiled cleaning instructions are followed. If you are aware that another proprietary branded proofer has been applied it is best to contact their customer service department to ascertain how you should remove their proofer.
A number of our customers have changed the colour of their fabric soft tops using this method and the feedback has always been positive, but I would strongly advise that I do not feel your attempt will leave you with the results you desire!
