Instructions For Use:

  1. 1. Ensure that the soft-top is dry and free from grease, dirt and previous waterproof coatings by thoroughly cleaning with Renovo Soft-Top Canvas Cleaner before commencing application.
    2. Unscrew the bottle top and pour Reviver into a suitable container/bowl.
    3. Stir well prior to application
    4. Apply Reviver with a new 5cm/2inch paintbrush using even strokes across the soft-top. It is best to commence application in the centre of the soft-top and as quickly as possible progress towards each side, the front and the back of the soft-top. Wipe excess drips from paintwork, trims and glass with a damp cloth. Do not apply in direct sunlight, as this will cause the Reviver to dry out too quickly and produce an uneven result!
    Depending on the condition of the top a litre of Reviver is usually sufficient for two coats on an average size soft-top. It is important to allow Reviver to dry between coats. Always ensure that you have enough Reviver to coat the soft-top completely and that you will not run out half way through application!
    Renovo recommends applying at least two coats to achieve greater depth of colour on badly faded tops.
    Reviver can also be applied in the same way as above to the fabric on the interior of the top.
    5. Allow the top to dry for approximately three hours, this will depend on the drying conditions. The Reviver may dry out more quickly if it is a warm day and may take longer to dry if it is a damp day! Do not take the car out in rain/wet weather until the Reviver has completely dried.
    6. Wash out brush in warm soapy water


Press Reports:


The packaging says "The definitive Plastic Window Polish" Oh yeah? Well actually ,if not THE definitive polish (I struggle to award 10 out of 10, it's pretty darned close to it ....probably 9.5 out of 10. It's quite rare that I test a product that's as good as it boasts, especially when, like RENOVO's, those boasts are plastered all over the bottle).
But, bless me, RENOVO works. Not only does it remove scratches from perspex and plastic rear hood windows, it's easy to do.



Use Plastic Window Cleaner to offset some of the problems normally associated with this type of window in convertibles. As the hood folds down scratches occur from microscopic canvas friction marks. With the new cleaner these marks can be polished out, which can also reduce significantly the cloudiness that is also common with this type of rear screen.
This is not a miracle cleaner so it does not work on screens
that are so severely scratched that you can't see out of them,
but as the photos show, it can work very well if applied correctly and carefully.



Optional Extras Section......... " See Through ..... Every time the hood is raised or lowered on a convertible, the rear screen becomes slightly more scratched. Eventually, all that can be seen through it is a cloudy blur. If your convertible is suffering from an opaque scratched rear screen, PLASTIC WINDOW POLISH may cure the problem. The plastic polish is easily applied.



Spray hoods are wonderful things, writes Jeff Howlett.

They keep you inside in the dry, yet you can still see out through the clear plastic panels. Until the plastic becomes scratched by the continuous folding up and down of the wood, and ultra-violet rays make the panels go cloudy, This new product from Renovo aims to put that right by removing cloudiness and scratches, using a simple polish-on, polish-off process. I tried the stuff on the corner sections of my wheelhouse windows, which are curved and therefore Perspex and which were very cloudy. I admit I was sceptical. After all, the Perspex is 3/16in (8mm) thick and much tougher than the flexible panels one finds in a hood. However, I've gone over them twice and there is a dramatic improvement - I reckon a third dose will restore them to close to their original clarity. A lot cheaper, and easier than new windows or hood.
