Mercedes E200 | Soft-Top Cleaning & Weatherproofing
Nov

What do you do, when your soft top is no longer blue, it's shabby and green, it's time for a clean!

We have a number of options for cleaning cabriolet hoods on a menu, at various prices. However, by far the most popular is the 2-year weatherproof coating. It's far more cost-effective and in our opinion, it gives a nicer darker finish. 

So this Mercedes convertible had its hood machine cleaned and coated with the Vädervakt two-stage  protective and hydrophobic coating. This coating makes the fabric waterproof, so it doesn't stay soggy and give moss and lichen an opportunity to grow. It also contains antifungals and prevents all kinds of mould forming.

To prevent leaks and other water ingress issues, we cleared all the leaves and debris out of the rear gutters, unblocked the drains and treated the rubbers with Krytox.
