Cabriolet Hood Protection
We have a range of hydrophobic and nano-coatings which repel water and help to prevent lichen, moss and grime from adhering to your fabric hood.
Cabriolet/Convertible hoods are tough to keep clean and prone to fading . Fabric hoods usually attract mould and moss while the plastic rear windows often fitted on cabriolet vehicles can become cloudy and scratch easily. Without protection you can expect an unmaintained convertible hood on a cabriolet to last on average around 6-8 years before it will need replacing.
Convertible Hood Cleaning & Restoration
The majority of people usually come to us because their convertible hoods have been neglected, not maintained or cleaned for a considerable period of time. This neglect generally leads to the hood becoming covered in green algae, moss, mould or lichen and when left untreated to the elements the fabric can deteriorate rapidly. Unfortunately IF left unmaintained the rotting process begins and when reaching a point of no return it will create further problems such as water leaks and functional issues. Therefore, recovery and restoration of the existing hood will no longer be possible and will inevitably lead to an expensive convertible hood replacement costing anything between £500 - £3000. in order to avoid costly hood replacements, regular cleaning, protection and maintenance is advised.
Weather Protection & Fabric Hood Proofing
Weather protection with **Renovo Ultra Proofer** & **Max Protect UFC Proofer**
All brand new fabric soft tops come with an invisible 'weather proofer' already applied and over time this special coating deteriorates and needs replacing leaving your soft top roof unprotected from the elements becoming weak and more prone to damage.
We offer a varied range of convertible hood protection products including Renovo® Ultra Proofer & Max Protect UFC Proofer. These dedicated convertible hood products protect your convertible/cabriolet hood by creating an invisible chemical and waterproof barriers. These barriers prevent discolouration from ingrained dirt, tree sap, bird droppings, road salts and much more from penetrating into the fibres and doing damage to the convertible hood material.
These hood protection products have a specially developed formula which contains Ultra Violet (UV) inhibitors and agents to prevent mould and mildew and prolongs the life of your soft top whilst maintaining the value of your car.
Our Cleaning Process.
Before Ultra Proofer is applied, your convertible hood is washed and brushed using a variety of specialist tools and hood cleaning products and then the convertible hood is then dried. Your car will also be given a quick wash so that you won't be collecting a dirty car with a clean roof. This level of service is ideal for most cars that are no more than a few years old where the hood is reasonably free from mould, moss and lichen and for the older, dirtier hoods you may also require a Hood Machine Clean.
Your hood is cleaned, dried, re-proofed and then dried again and so in normal circumstances you will be required to leave your car with us for a minimum 4 hours. Please be mindful to allow extra time if the weather is unfavourable and experiencing rain as it is vitally important that the hood is properly dried before returning the car to you.
We can also provide a two stage protective and hydrophobic coating which contains antimicrobial agents. The nano particles coat the fibres of your fabric hood providing extended durability.

Cannot express how impressed I am with the result of my cabriolet roof. As their name says - it simply is like new. From the first call, the knowledge and professionalism these guys gave me throughout the whole process means I cannot recommend them enough.
Mr J Pratten
Excellent service; price but mostly the people. Went in to get a convertible roof done and it was in a right state. They gave it 2+ clean services to scrub up to something decent and did a deal on protective coat price just because they thought it would help roof appearance.
Genuinely felt they cared and wanted to do a good job rather than just give the clean or paid for and leave it. I’ll be back in a heartbeat for anything similar.
New Again, the name say's it all!! Highly recommended! Thanks to Gary and his team for the work carried out on my convertible today.
