“White marks are on the arch of my hood, how do I get rid of them?”

Hi Ralph! White marks, are a very common issue with certain tops I’m afraid!

Judging by the areas in which you say the marks are present, I can feel confident that they are “fold marks”, however, if they are white streaks caused by a power washer, then unfortunately, it will be a much greater issue!

However, if they are indeed fold marks or “scuff marks” , these are caused by the fabric of the soft top rubbing against itself whilst using the folding and unfolding mechanism. Some soft tops are more prone to these “scuff” marks than others. You can clean your soft top to help reduce the marks (as dirt within the fibres of the soft top will increase the friction) with the Renovo Fabric Soft Top Cleaner and then use Renovo Soft Top Reviver to spruce up the colour.

Although the Reviver will mask the marks over the roof support bars, when you start to fold down the top up and down again the marks will begin to reappear; as these are simply caused by friction of the material rubbing against itself.

You must use the Reviver product on the whole roof, and NOT just the area with white marks, otherwise you will have a very patchy result, which would mostly likely highlight the fold marks even more so!

Renovo Ultra Proofer is a fantastic way to waterproof and protect your top from becoming ingrained with dirt, which would cause greater friction and worsen the marks – so remember to use the Ultra Proofer once you have achieved the colour that you desire from the Reviver!
