Hello Duncan, a soft top becoming stiff is a common issue fabric soft top owners can have, but it will generally ease over time, especially in warmer weather. However, we are aware of a nifty tip! Our chemist has advised us that KY Jelly is a very effective product to ease the tension! – Yes, the kind you will find in the sex trade!
Use the jelly sparingly, rubbing it into the fabric with your fingertips. Yes, we know this may sound amusing, but try it for yourself on a small inconspicuous area of the soft top first before treating the whole cover. It really works!
I hope this information was helpful to you, and please feel free to contact me, or take a look at our “archive” section for all previously asked questions.
Don’t forget that all of Renovo’s products are available for purchase via our website, unfortunately, we do not currently stock KY Jelly!
