Black convertible top


Recommended Posts

Fellow Boxster pride,

My problem is the birds darting over the car feel obliged to leave their mark and 99% of the time, these find their way to the top. :soapbox:

Plain water or Windex isn't quite effective to eliminate any remnants of these "Thank You!" marks.

Car's at work daily and for some reason, these birds seem to follow everywhere I park! :censored:

How do you keep your tops black and clean? :)

Appreciate any suggestions or ideas here.

Cheers!

We do have bad luck it seems with this. My daily car is clean as can be and I take zero care of it. My Boxster gets crapped on like once a day it seems lol. That and it just attracts dirt way easier. Or maybe just that I actually notice these things on the car I care about :)

I use the 303 Fabric top cleaner and protectant. Cleans up the top very nice, just spray on the cleaner and use a soft brush to work the detergent into the fabric, rinse clean. Once or twice a year I spray it down with the waterproofing treatment. In between I have used a lint roller to remove small amounts of dust or lint. I religously only use Plexus cleaner for the plastic rear window, it works great.

Car cover?

You **** betcha!

Once had a navy blue Volvo 242. My assigned parking spot was directly beneath a honeysuckle tree. Lots of red berries that had a laxative effect on the birds. This was in the early 70's when I was a renter.

My car would be covered w/bird s--t every morning during warmer months. The car cover I bought worked great! Took about 3 minutes to put on car, even less to remove.

Had elastic running through all four corners at bottom, and a mid-car eyelet an each side through which I would insert a cable to secure it. Came with pillow case type container to stow cover. Once a week would

run through washing machine.

Now have one for my Box w/black convertible top. Makes big difference. Be sure to get a BREATHABLE cover. Otherwise the car wax may develop dense white fog (like furniture polish with neglected water spills)

Have had this cover for more than 3 years now, still like new. Got it from Pelican parts, IIRC made by COVERKING. Good, better, best, type ranking. Got the BEST rated, A little pricey,

but worth every penny over the years.
