    Fake convertible top maintenance

    Hi, I recently bought a 2001 Eldorado with a fake light beige convertible top. The top is like brand new and the car is always garaged. So can anyone tell me how to maintain it. Can I wash it with mild soap and water ? and what if it's more resistant stained ?

    There are several detail equipment vendors in CF....one will chime in sometime today......meantime, go to www.autogeek.net and surf around for top cleaners and preservatives. There's a ton of stuff in their site.

    That is one very good-looking car. No wonder you want to maintain it !!!

    Nice car!!! You might want to check out Raggtopp. They have a cleaner and preservative for vinyl tops, and for carriage tops (fabric). Autogeek has it. Here is a link to the fabric top kit...

    I know this an older post, but I just bought a 2001 Eldorado ESC myself with the same type of biege fabric top. I love the car and the top, but it has a bit of staining on it. What have you used to clean your top? Any information you could provide would be great. Thanks so much!

    For stained areas, use a very soft bristle brush (such as a shoe shine brush, or for small areas, a soft toothbrush) with dawn dish detergent and warm water.

    Don't use any convertible top treatments/water proofers.
