Best on the Market
I’ve been using RaggTopp protectant since 2005 on a Jaguar XK convertible (tan cloth) and then on my 911S cabriolet (blue cloth)... both tops use premium fabrics. I usually apply protectant once a year to protect the color and repellency. This protectant is colorless and it doesn’t leave any residue whatsoever. I make sure the fabric is clean and dry, then I use a lint roller to remove dust and lint. Since I want to avoid overspray, I carefully cover all the window glass and trim with blue painters tape and newspapers to mask exposed areas. This prep work adds about 30 minutes but I have never regretted doing it. Then, I apply the spray protectant, wetting the fabric thoroughly. After 30 minutes or so (it dries fast), I reapply another coat. Generally speaking, I’ll keep applying coats until the spray can sounds empty... My theory is, “If some is good, more is better”. The fabric looks deeper and richer afterward and noticeably beads water like a new top would. Advice: Skip the box kit and just buy the can of protectant.
ProsGreat results and worth the time and effort once a year. Not too expensive. Good Saturday or Sunday afternoon project for car nuts like me.
ConsIt can be a little time consuming if you take your time and do it right. Allow at least two hours to tape, mask and spray three or four coats.
