Autohaus Polishing recommends to have a vehicle’s convertible top cleaning to be performed by experienced industry professionals! Although some local car wash personnels may have the proper training, in the event that your convertible top has not been cleaned for an extended period of time, we do recommend to thoroughly clean and remove any deposits and ingrained contaminants beforehand. Taking these preventive measures will ensure that your convertible top will remain sufficiently protected throughout the course of its use. Once a thorough convertible top cleaning has been completed, it may then be regularly washed along with the rest of your vehicle.
Most convertible top material is designed to breathe. Unfortunately, if neglected over time, the water may begin to work its way through the material which then may leak to the interior cabin of your vehicle. For this reason, Autohaus Polishing recommends treating your convertible top to help protect it from the sun’s harmful rays and other natural elemants. Doing so will prevent the top from drying out and premature discoloration and/or fading of the top’s material.
