    For cleaning either Raggtop or AutoGlym do soft top kits that are both very good.

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    IMHO the autoglym one is the best out there, used it twice over three years and been very impressed with it.

    Easy to use, gives a good result.

    You get two bottles, one to clean it up and one to re "seal" it.

    Does it bring the colour back as its starting to fade/go greyish in places, or do I need something else to bring it back to black first??
