Dumb question: is it vinyl or cloth?

303 aerospace protectant and cleaner (2 different products) works well on my stayfast (cloth) C1 top.
Protectant annually to resist water, dirt and grime.
Spot clean dirty spots with the cleaner.

That is what the material manufacturer (Haartz) recommended.

My preference are the Raggtop products (endorsed by HAARTZ, our convertible top manufacturer). 303 Aerospace products are excellent as well. I found the Raggtop products to be a little better at repelling water via a 1/2 and 1/2 test I did years ago on my C6's top.

I used Raggtopp products for years, but recently tried 303 Convertible Top Cleaner and followed up with an application of 303 Fabric Guard. I found the 303 products to be a little easier to use, and it continues to bead for a significantly longer time than I experienced with Raggtopp. I would used either product with confidence.
