“What quantity of each product will I need to restore my SAAB convertible?”

The required quantity to carry out a hood renovation is a very difficult aspect to advise a customer completely accurately! This is because there are many factors that manipulate the required amount of each product, such as how dirty the top is, or how faded the top is, etc. However, as a general guide, I […]

“My vinyl top is deteriorating; do Renovo make a Reviver suitable for vinyl hoods?”

Firstly, I am afraid we do not manufacture a Reviver suitable for vinyl hoods, our fabric Soft Top Reviver would not be able to absorb into the vinyl, so please don’t try that! I recommend that you use the Vinyl Soft Top Cleaner to thoroughly clean your top, removing any build up of dirt that […]

“My hood was jet washed and it has left white marks, will your Reviver cover them up?”

It always pains me to hear that someone has used a jet wash on their convertible top; unfortunately this is quite a common mistake, not only by the vehicle owners, but also professional detailers!

“I have applied the Ultra Proofer, but it’s not beading when my top gets wet!”

I can easily answer and explain this quandary for you. Renovo Ultra Proofer is a water based weather proofing product, the water propels the proofing agents into the fabric of the soft top, once the water has evaporated and the top is dried, then the soft top is weather proofed. On most fabric soft tops […]

“How do I remove the proofer prior to applying Reviver?”

First of all, well done for asking this question, instead of just applying the Reviver to your soft top before removing any previously applied proofing agents! Despite the instructions on the Reviver bottle, you would be amazed by how many people just go ahead and put the Reviver onto a protected top and are then […]
