Good question! I get asked this a lot!
The simple answer is NO, they will not harm your paintwork or windows!
All of Renovo’s products are water-based in order to be entirely kind to your soft top, paintwork and windows. I believe the main confusion about this matter is because of a lot of the pictures that circulate online that show a customer using tape to cover their paintwork or windows.
Of course there is no harm in covering your windows or paintwork with tape when applying Renovo products, but don’t panic if you do happen to accidentally splash a little onto your vehicles bodywork. Any splashes that you make during the application process, can be easily wiped off with a damp cloth, so always make sure you have one nearby!
As you can see by the picture on the right, customer felt a little cautious when applying Renovo products, and has used tape to cover the paintwork of his vehicle! If it helps you feel more at ease when applying our products, then do what you must!
If the marks have been allowed to dry on to your paintwork or glass, you can easily remove them with a mixture of hot water and quality car shampoo. However, I have found that once products such as the Soft Top Reviver
have been allowed to dry on your paintwork/windows, they can be easily eased off with your thumbnail.
I hope this has put your mind at ease, and feel free to contact me again if you have any further questions!
Don’t forget all of our products are available on our website:
