Restoring convertible top
« on: May 21, 2016, 05:34:14 PM »
I have a black convertible top that is just starting to discolor a little bit. Has anyone found a product to darken or preserve the coloring?

Thanks,
Bill

Don't call me crazy... But its rumored that KIWI solid (not liquid) Black Shoe Polish in the circular tin works extremely well.  Don't shoot the messenger.

Not crazy, just using your smarts. Swabbies and Jarheads know all about Kiwi in the can. It's wax based (good for shoes too).
