Never seen it there, but double check Autozone has more than what meets the eye.

Ragg Topp here as well, I dont see it at autozone etc but you can order it online. It works very good. Only so much can be done if neglect has been going on a long time, it just depends. I know mine is due for another round.... I just HATE doing it as it involves getting the car wet

Well my top is brand new about a year ago. I haven't applied anything to it yet. But it is also a garage queen. Will this ragtop make it shiny? And thanx for the replies.

Re: convertible top care

ah I see, then you should be good. I take it the type if vinyl and I have never had one with that material to test with as mine is cloth. It shouldnt make it look bad or to shinny. It is a two stage thing, first you clean it then you put the protectant on it. The version for the cloth doesnt make it greasy just clean looking and deeper in color. If you find a source for a good price shipped let me know. I was going to order on autogeek but their shipping is HORRIBLE

Ok sounds good. Yeah mine is vinyl. I have a mequires top cleaner and it works wonderful. Matter of fact it looks brand new. I just know that it won't protect it. And I actually wouldn't mind a nice shine.

One more question. I have seen a few threads you posted on about the California duster. I am guessing I probably should keep this off the top? Especially once I get some protectant on it?

Autogeek is terrible with shipping prices since it's based on how much you order. I had to get 2 burshes from them. I paid more in shipping than the burshes were worth. Check Amazon for Ragg Top cleaner- the last I looked it was the cheapest. topoftheline.com is another good place shipping isn't too much, but their selection lately hasn't been great.
