Convertible hood Restoration on a BMW 3 Series
Cabriolet are susceptible to going green with moss or getting yellow and white patches of lichen, they can even get mouldy and start to rot.
Dirt and grit acts like an abrasive and begins to wear on the hood as is it is folded away, all causing damage which can shorten the life of your cabriolet. In this video we will show you how we can remove the lichen, moss and stains, making the hood like new again. This car's soft top was then given a hydrophobic coating to protect if for another couple of winters.
If left untreated, the hydrophobic coating will wear off, it will soak up water instead of repelling it. Dirt will accumulate in the fabric, creating a perfect environment for flora to grow. The grit that gets into the hood also acts as an abrasive, which can cause wear on the hood unless you clean it periodically... and it's easy to keep clean when it has a water repellant coating. So it makes sense to have your convertible roof professionally cleaned.
Please take a look at our hood restoration service.
