soft top window care

What product is best for cleaning windows on soft tops? What is best for treating them, protecting, fill in scratches etc. after cleaning?

Re: soft top window care

I actually use lemon Pledge inside and out. Only use Pledge - no other furnisher polish! Apply it on your clean windows and DO NOT USE PAPER TOWELS! Use only a clean soft terry-cloth towel. Polish the window until it is clean.

A guy who drove a MGB showed me this tip years ago. It will actually hide small imperfections and leave your windows shiny and like new. I used it on my Wrangler and after three years the windows still looked like new. Another advantage is it will leave a little wax on your windows and will clean easier next time you go wheeling. Usually only a hose is needed to clean most of the dirt off keeping your windows scratch free longer.

Re: soft top window care

Whenever you roll up the rear window, roll it up with a towel wrapped inside. That keeps the plastic from vibrating as you drive around and scratching or scuffing itself. I've done this for years with my tops and they always stay clear.

Re: soft top window care

Another product to use is made by Kleenmaster called Brillianize. It's aproved for use with plexiglass, Lexan, Acrylite, Lucite etc..... I use it and it not only cleans (and is anti static), but polishes as well, leaving a smooth slick surface.

Creator, everything we do leaves a track. May our tracks be ones we would want you to see and others to follow......

Re: soft top window care

I never roll up my rear window both when I had my Wrangler and with my Samurai. I hate those black lines you get from the straps. I use to just take my rear window out of my Wrangler, I wish the Samurai tops had that feature.
