    My hard top is white, and it bleeds all over the blazer after its been wet. Kinda the Gonzo zebra stripe look. Anyway, short of repainting it can I use wax? or scrub the hell out it? Use lacquer to seal it? I really don't want to paint it. Its not hard to wipe the white streaks away, just kind of redundant.

    You could just clean the top really well and topcoat it with a spray-on clear enamel or acrylic. Just be sure that whatever coating you use is safe for fiberglass........You'd hate to melt your top trying to fix it!!!!!

    You could put some kind of bed liner on it. Herculiner comes in white. http://www.herculiner.com

    I would think you could go to a boating store and get some fiberglass type cleaner and wax or sealer.
    Good luck!

    You could have the top sanded a bit, sprayed in the exact color of your truck and clearcoated. I think it looks good on my truck, anyway.

    I really don't want to paint it. I think I;m going to rough it up a bit and put some carnouba wax on it. Maybe even Thompson water seal. As long as its not glossy. Thanx for the replies everyone.
