    Cabrio Hood

    Can anyone suggest any products on the market I can use to get the hood looking a little more 'fresh' again?

    It's looking a bit grey and sorry for itself (colourwise) and it would be nice to have it gleaming once again

    The autoglym kit is alot better than turtle wax although I think the people that make the soft tops recommend Raggtopp. but aye make sure you give it a good brush and a hoover (or a hoover with a brush) if you work in a circlular motion it picks up the wierd cobweb/feather stuff really good.

    Also I found some tips somewhere that instead of masking up your windows and stuff (the over spray is a right hassel if you miss a bit! although a bit of QD seems to do the trick) put some clingfilm over the windows/painted bits that might be sprayed. (ive not actually done this but it seems like a top tip!)

    I thought you was coming down here in it cos you would be able to get the roof down seeing as we southerners have a magical thing called heat and warmth
