    Hey folks, do any of you have any advice on cleaning the plastic windows on my CanBack soft-top or any other soft-top for that matter? I know they can get scratched very easily, so I try to clean them as little as possible (unfortunately), but when I do, I just wipe them with a thoroughly water-soaked clean towel. Anyone know of any scratch resistant coatings, cleaners, etc? Or things I should NOT use to wipe the windows?

    thanks...

    these guys-<a target="_blank" href=http://www.store.yahoo.com/collinsbros/plexus.html>http://www.store.yahoo.com/collinsbros/plexus.html</a> have some stuff for cleaning the jeep soft tops and i would assume it will work for any soft top because the manufacturers are the same, hope that helps

    Avoid harsh chemicals especially things like glass cleaner(Windex ect.) Read product lables and make sure that they're safe for plastics. I'd personally use a very weak solution of dishwashing detergent(NOT THE DISHWASHING MACHINE KIND) like Dawn and water. You probably have it allready around the house and it doesn't take much. Use clean towells not shop raggs that could have metal particles in them even if washed.

    If you knew the truth, you too would be against marijuana prohibition!
