Vinyl Top Reconditioning

Post by kaoticmethod » Wed Oct 10, 2012 9:38 am

Hey guys, one of the first things (besides getting the dent out of the driver's fender) is addressing the full vinyl top that came with my Malibu.

Question is, what can I look at to determine if the vinyl top is salvageable? Its in really rough shape due to the AZ/NM sun but feel it should be rust free (knock on wood).

Have any of you had good luck with a vinyl top restoration product? If I can restore the top, ill probably also be looking to dye it black down the road.

Im trying to get a good idea if Im wasting my time buying a vinyl restoration product if the top is already shot.

If anyone with vinyl top experience could chime in, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks all

Ken
