“What is the best way to clean, restore and protect my Jaguar’s soft top?”

Hi Scott,

I would recommend that you treat your Jaguar’s soft top with a three stage process, using the following Renovo products:

To begin, you need to clean the soft top with Renovo Fabric Soft Top CleanerRemoving previous applications of waterproofing products, dust, dirt, mould, mildew and tree sap will provide the best surface for applying Renovo Reviver. It is imperative that any previously applied waterproofing agents are completely removed, as Reviver, the next stage in the treatment is water based. Hence, if Reviver is applied to a soft top that has residual waterproofer within, the Reviver is not able to soak through evenly and this will give a patchy result.

To remove Renovo Ultra Proofer use Renovo Fabric Soft Top Cleaner following these instructions:– Mist spray the top and then paint on Fabric Soft Top Cleaner, leave the solution to process for approximately one hour,the optimum time for the active ingredients to work. Using hand hot water the surface should then be scrubbed with a bristle brush, being careful around stitched areas and windows. It is essential to use hand hot water. Finish by rinsing off with water. Repeat the whole process as necessary.

Step two – reviving the colour When you are sure that the soft top is adequately prepared by your cleaning
processes, that is all water proofer has been removed and the fabric is as clean as possible you can begin application of
Reviver. Apply with a 5cm brush applying even strokes, starting from the middle and work your way out. You will more than likely require 2 coats.

Step 3 – weather protecting your soft top Ultra Proofer is the last product to use; it is neutral in colour so suitable for all shades of soft top. It can be applied to protect the original colour of your soft top or to prolong the life of the re-colour afforded by ReviverThe recently improved formulation now has the added benefits of UV factor protection and a mould/mildew growth inhibitor to ensure convertible tops look like new for longer. We recommend that to achieve optimum protection, Ultra Proofer should be applied about every six months.

I hope you found this information helpful, don’t forget that all Renovo products are available for purchase via the website:
