This Newbie Vert owner can use some guidance

Sooooo....reading through previous Vert posts....I realize/understand how important it is to take care of a Vert top. I've ordered the 303 cleaner and protectant. Any pointers on easiest way to do the care process. Appreciate your guys input.

Hay girl, can't blame ya..
Haven't herd of 303, its not local I clean Frost real good, spend a hour picking lint () off her then use Scotch Gard "auto-fabric" protector..
I'll keep 6" away from the cloth, starting at the top (front) center and work my way to the door, doing a section at a time and
over-lap, the spray, I only do an arms length at a time, so I get full coverage & work my way to the back.
I clean up the over spray..asap, just so I know I've got all of her top done, two weeks ago.. I think it took a half-hour,
I could see the results and happy, tho I started in a real small area at the center, behind the third break light, just to test it first and
waited to make sure, no issues were going to come up

Hope something hear helped, keep us posted on the results..thX

I believe the "top" two protectants are 303 and raggtopp. I'm sure they are both excellent and just a matter of personal choice. I went with raggtopp and have been happy. The kit comes with a spray to wash the top and the actual spray for the protection. I use a lint roller to remove as much lint as I can before washing. After the top dries thoroughly (in vegas im sure thats not a problem), I spray it on. If I remember correctly, overspray is ok and can be simply wiped off. The beading is incredible! Again, im sure 303 is just as good. As long as top is protected, you are good.

I used 303 and it works great. I opened the top up about 6 inches and pulled a plastic drop cloth over the top of the windows and down over the windshield (covering everything except the canvas top). Also taped off and covered the rear window and tucked a drop cloth into the back where the top meets the rear valance. Latched the top down and closed the door.

Then sprayed the 303 on and let it dry. After about 1.5 hours removed all of the drop cloths and untaped the rear window. Looked great and beads up every wash, even after 2 years.

11/26/2010 - (1100) Order Placed at Dealership
01/04/2011 - (3000) Order accepted by production control. Parts being ordered and production process is underway.
02/09/2011 - (3400) Order Broadcast (Internal Plant Paperwork Order Produced)
02/15/2011 - (3800) Order produced and vehicle is being prepared for shipping. VIN # 162679
03/05/2011 - (5000) Delivered to me - thanks Eric!
