    Default 430 spider soft top

    Thought I had asked this question before but can find no trace of it.

    Anyway what has been the practical experience of the soft top - wear and maintenance. I find that mine leaves two bad creases at the side just behind the door window and whilst this has had no effect so far I cant imagine that being the case longer term.

    The 360 is the same hood as the 430 so, based on my experience:

    a) The creases behind the doors at the sides will eventually fray the fabric but its repairable.

    b) I also have scuffs where the roof settles on dust etc on the rear panel, the only thing you can do is polish it out as suggested and either live with it, PPF it or clean the grit/dust off the hood and landing area every time you close the roof.

    c) Polishing out the marks on the rear screen is an absolute doddle with Hindsight, which we sell. http://www.morethanpolish.com/hindsight.asp

    Ignore this thread please. I have just found my earlier thread on the same subject - for some reason it didnt show up when I did a search before I posted here. Probably me rather than the system.
