I don’t know if my MX5 has a fabric or a vinyl soft top, how do I check this?

I want to clean and protect it but I’m unsure which of your products are the right ones to buy.”

MX5’s can have either a fabric or a vinyl soft top, it depends on what the original owner ordered when they purchased the car and, indeed, whether the factory fitted soft top has been replaced at some point in the car’s history.

As a general visual guide, a fabric soft top will have a woven thread/material like texture, not dissimilar to tent material, whilst a vinyl soft top will have a more grainy plastic like look to it.
