Convertible Roof Cleaning & Hood Restoration
Fabric soft top convertible roofs can sometimes lose their lustre and deteriorate over time. Mould spots and algae can appear and the once deep rich colour can appear faded.
A new fabric convertible hood can sometimes be out of budget. However, the longevity of the fabric hood can be prolonged by a deep clean to remove dirt and growth build up and reproofing of the fabric.
We can assess your hood fabric and ensure it is suitable for this service. If the fabric is in good repair other than dirt and mould and sometimes a faded colour, cleaning and restoring and reproofing the convertible roof fabric is an effective cheaper option.
Clean & Treatment of Convertible Roof Seals
Another item to give consideration to is the seals on your soft top or hard top folding roof system. The seals on your cabin and boot area are crucial and often get overlooked when cleaning and caring for your cherished cabriolet.
The seals play a fundamental part of keeping your convertible water tight from the sometimes wet and windy British weather. A seal cannot do its job properly if the 2 contact surfaces are not clean – a tight seal is not permitted from dirt and debris build up.
We would recommend that seals are inspected regularly when cleaning the outside of your vehicle and if a build-up is noticed then it is important to address this before it becomes and problem and you notice water inside the vehicle.
Water ingress is destructive, smelly and a nuisance and can impact on the electrical components within the roof system and vehicle itself leading to costly repair bills and an unpleasant ride.
Cleaning and treating the rubber seals with a lubricant called Krytox is an essential part of the cabriolet roof system’s maintenance and depending on where the vehicle is parked, we would recommend an annual clean and treatment of the roof and boot seals.
