    Cab roof cleaning, what products to use?

    Picked my a4 cab up yesterday and although previous owner had cleaned it, it wasn't what I'd call clean so wanted to give it the once over before she gets treats and detailed next month. Watched afew videos on YouTube on best ways to clean a cabriolet roof and things not to use etc, so I've got the idea but want to know what products people are using and how good they are.

    If you use the Autoglym kit, don't get any of the protector on glass or paint, it's a bugger to get off when it's dry !

    a good polish will solve that issue.

    On my TT I used to use Johnsons baby bath, then a couple of coats of Fabsil to protect.
