CARE OF CONVERTIBLE MODEL TOPS - The ONLY METHOD RECOMMENDED for cleaning convertible top material is the use of lukewarm (not hot) water, and a mild (not caustic) soap. The top should be cleaned carefully from end to end using a medium stiff brush or sponge. Do not saturate at any point. Do not fold top when wet. Frequent brushing with an ordinary upholstery brush or stiff whisk broom is helpful in preventing dust and dirt from imbedding itself in the fabric.
CARE OF PLASTIC BACK WINDOW - To avoid
scratches to which the back window is susceptible, use only a soft cotton
cloth moistened with tepid (not hot) water and mild (not caustic) soap.
Rinse with clear water and dry with a slightly moistened soft, clean
cloth. NO OTHER CLEANING METHOD IS RECOMMENDED.
