Thank you. And I must say, this product lived up to all the claims. Although my top ('06 BMW 650i) wasn't in very bad condition like some of the website photos, the results were amazing. Friends thought I got a new replacement top. It's now nice to know I can make this top last the life of the vehicle with your product.

Hello, I recently ordered your mohair soft top cleaner, colour and re-proofer. After trying several products on the market I had begun to lose hope of ever seeing my hood look good again. I just wanted to say I am delighted with the results of your products, my hood now looks brand new again.

Thankyou so much for this superb product, I'll be recommending this.

An excellent product.

I have a Jaguar XJS convertible-1989 which lives outside under a cover. It still has its original hood, looking pretty good, thanks to occasional revival with your soft top treatment.

My car is now ten years old and has been kept outside for the last 7 years. Using Renovo Soft Top cleaner and Ultra Proofer regularly has kept it in great condition. Application is straightforward and quick. Thoroughly recommended.

Used the black Leather Reviver product yesterday and VERY impressed with it.

The interior of the X5 (black leather) took about 66 per cent of the pot. I like the way it goes on and the fact it covered a few minor scratches including an irritating one on the steering wheel. I left it for about 30 minutes and then buffed it.

No 'rub off' or any other maladies. EXCELLENT product.

Oh and this morning the car smelt all new and leathery again!

There are a lot of enthusiastic feedbacks in your website about your products and how good they are, therefore I don't think you need a further testimonial.

I only want to stress that Renovo products (either Top Canvas Cleaner or Soft Top Reviver as well as Ultra Proofer) are very easy to clean from trims or car's body and glasses: this makes all the work very comfortable (I did it without spending hours in masking all the car), safe and easy to get a great result.

See you next year for a new treatment.

I had GREAT success with the 3 stage product kit from Renovo. We took an originally light tan soft convertible top on my wife's BMW Z3 and switched it to a deep vivid black! Saved us hundreds from buying a new top! We used the cleaner/ stripping agent first (tons of dirt water extracted). Then 3 coats of black over the course of 1.5 days. Then 2 coats of the clear UV/ H20 protectant 24hrs later. We immediately took the Z3 tons local car show and received compliments all over the place from people that knew the car before when it was tan. Even compared it to a Z3M that was all black and ours was a "deeper" black!

Love it!!

I used Renovo on my 67 E Type and results are amazing! A very sun faded top has been transformed into an as new finished top. Not many products deliver on their promise like this.

Most impressive.

I applied 2 coats and plenty of product left for future refreshes.

I doubted that any cleaning process could save my 20 old year soft top, it looked too far gone.

The stains and mould growth were just awful from years of being parked beneath a tree. But I decided to give Renovo a try.

The result is truly stunning the roof looks new.

The process is a complete renovation, all stains are removed with the cleaning solution which I applied and left on to do its work for the maximum recommended time [about an hour]. I then scrubbed with a nail brush and hot water which raised the thick green mould and bird dirt to the surface. Then rinsed thoroughly. When left to dry the top was completely clear of stains just fantastic!!

The second part is like a dying process applied with a brush and evens out any faded colour. Finally a water-proofing solution which actually worked after one coat, the second coat quite difficult to apply being repelled by the first.

Not only has the soft top been saved but also the car which is probably worth less than the price of a new top.

5 stars are not enough for this product. Just brilliant!!!

Am I glad that I read in the Telegraph motoring section a reply, by Honest John, to a question posed about soft top cleaning.

I bought my Boxster last year, the roof was quite badly stained. I have tried various products to no avail.

Having, now, applied two coats of cleaner, two coats of dye and one coat of weather proofing, I think you'll agree that I made the right choice by using your products.


A very very satisfied customer!

I just apply your product on a hood AUDI A4 in it was leaking. The hood is heavily damaged by mistreatment of use and maintenance. I applied twice your product over the entire surface of the hood, not expecting that the first coat dry completely. I did it on purpose so that the two layers properly absorb the product. This morning I put the vehicle outside because it rains all day. From time to time, I'll check and it is still dry inside!

Let me congratulate you on the quality of your product really works.

My client is very happy because he wants the top is tight since it has no garage to protect it.

I have used Renovo soft top product on my soft top from 1983. It was faded to an ugly green shade. I now have a beautiful black soft top again. This has saved me £1000, as I can now wait a year or 2 before buying a new soft top.

I highly recommend trying this product, before investing in a new soft top.

I was a little apprehensive about changing the colour of my top. It was in good shape, aside from some fading and some unsightly adhesive stains coming from underneath the fabric (common issue). I loved the brown when I bought the car in 2008, but always secretly wanted black. I did not want to spend the $600 plus on a new top because the top is still in a very functional state. After researching Renovo I decided it was easily the best option for me. There is a lack of info on forums regarding the complete refinishing system, so I've posted on 3 or 4 different forums here in the states to help spread the word.

I'm very pleased with my results.

What a fantastic product. The soft top of my 2006 Porsche was turning green with mildew & algae. The products of another famous brand had not made any difference & I was worried that the soft top was beyond recovery. How wrong was I and how lucky was I to find Renovo? The result is absolutely stunning & proof of the effectiveness of the waterproofer is that today the is rain is sitting in globules on the roof, so impervious is the product to water.

Thank you so much.

I’m amazed I needed the plastic glass replacing on my MGTF but the cost put me off, then I heard about Renovo hood plastic cleaner so I bought the best.

Just used your RENOVO Canvas Cleaner, Reviver and Ultra Proofer over Easter 2013 on my 2006 Mazda MX-5 NC after someone from the Mazda MX-5 Australia club recommended a try. And I was BLOWN away!! Totally like a new soft top. The fading and white patches which was on the soft top magically disappeared after treatment.

The step by step guide on your website was very easy to follow.

This is my third MX-5 I have owned and should of known and used RENOVO earlier, totally amazing!!

I've just put 2 coats of reviver on my 11 year old MGF soft top and I am absolutely delighted. It has transformed a faded, shabby, stained top to like new and saved me the cost of a replacement.

Your revival product did not make any extravagant claims, but worked perfectly, unlike certain other products which don't deliver "what it says on the tin."

Well pleased and will recommend it to others.

If ever a product deserved the slogan; Does exactly what it says on the tin; this is it. Unbelievable restoration job carried out on my BMW Z3. Roof appeared to be in a terrible state but after small investment it is now like new. 100% clean, jet black and shower-proof. Amazing, well done to you guys.

I was amazed at how easy it was to fix the problem of having a shower in my car every time it rained! It is fantastic, and believe me, with all the rain we've had in Melbourne this week, it has well and truly been tested! Thank you so much for providing a fantastic product and all your help. I will certainly be buying the products again and definitely recommending them to others!

I have an Astra that is nine years old that was 18months old when I bought it. I have never cleaned the soft top apart from clean water when washing the car, so the hood has never been properly cleaned. As you can imagine it had a lot of dirt and mould. I used the full works, canvas cleaner, reviver followed by the Ultra Proofer and I must say that the hood is infinitely better than it was. There are some faint marks remaining, so another clean and reproof in six months or so should get it back to near new. Very good products, easy to use and good results if you follow the directions to the letter.

Just wanted to say Wow! the Plastic window polish is the best thing since sliced bread....at least where soft-top windows are concerned, 1/2 hour of effort just restored my Midget hood from milky white to crystal clear!

Riley Motor Club Victoria Magazine (Australia)


I had a chance to use the Fabric Soft Top Cleaner one evening during the week leading up to the concourse, but ran out of time to use the Canvas Ultra Proofer.

The product and process was very gentle on the hood; dry brush and vacuum first, applied the product with a 2" paint brush, left for half an hour then scrubbed using warm water and a sponge giving a bit more effort over the hood bows and finished by rinsing off with water.

The result was very impressive. The discolouration from ingrained dirt over the hood bows and some marks that I had not been able to remove in the past had all gone. The tiny spots around the rear quarters survived but were far less obvious. I have enough product left for perhaps another three or four cleans. In short – great product.

I have a Porsche Boxster and your initial answer to my inquiry about dyeing the top from white to dark blue prompted me to dye it.  I did receive the proofer today, thank you.

I dyed it 5 times but 4 probably would have been okay; I wanted to be sure. 

Anyway, it looks great - thank you.

I thought that it a pleasure to tell you people just how wonderful your products are.

I have a Chaparral sports cruiser 290, 7 years old, but to look at her she looks like new, because of your products.

The reviver has ensured, no, guaranteed the colour of my canvas pack covers to look as new, as good as the day I bought this boat from new, the proofer has ensured that I have no water ingress into my boat when the covers are on, and the window cleaner and vinyl cleaners add icing to the cake, I have and continue to recommend your products to any one and every one, because I passionately believe that this is one hell of a must have addition to those who like me want to protect and maintain the things we invest so much time money and energy on, and in my case a boat, which is a fine example of what you can do if you really care, thank you RENOVO

Just wanted to let you know what a fantastic product the black hood reviver is.

After a mishap with a competitor's product that reacted with/ was grossly misapplied on the hood of my Alfa spider your reviews and testimonials led me to try and salvage it.

Given the appalling state of the hood my hopes were not good but I thought it was worth a go.

After two coats (applied using a kitchen sponge which I found easier to work with than a paint brush), whilst the result is not absolutely perfect it's a damn sight better it was, and far exceeded my expectations.

Given the results I've had with the reviver, I will be trying out your window polish as well, and if the results are half as good I'll be very happy.

I wanted to write and say 'THANK YOU' for producing such fabulous products!

I have a fabric soft top and first used your Fabric Soft Top Cleaner and Ultra Proofer two years ago and I was amazed!

It did exactly what it claimed too and I was very surprised and pleased as how easy these products are to actually use. I would recommend applying the Ultra Proofer with a kitchen sponge rather than a paint brush as it is quicker and easier to apply evenly without runs.

When I first used this product my car was only two years old but after treatment the difference was still clearly visible. The cleaner really cleans deep into the fibres and lifts out all mould, dust and grime and the water proof barrier the ultra proofer leaves is fantastic the water just beads and runs off the roof plus it really does protect the canvas from mould and dirt imbedding back into the fibres.

I now use these products every 6 months to help protect the roof and keep it looking good as new!

Thank you for making such easy to use products that really do work!

Awesome product!...have been searching for ages to find a product that would remove increasing cloudiness from my MX5 NA vinyl window.  Finally found Renovo through MX5 specialist in Sydney.  Less that 1/2 hours work and window is good as new!  Most of the cloudy streaks were on the INSIDE of the window.  MX5 specialist said this is caused by gas build up from vinyl roof materials under our harsh climate.  Not a problem anymore!!  Thank you once again Renovo!!

Just a note which you may if you wish place in your "testimonials" page.

Having read about your product whilst searching for a replacement rear window for a Megane convertible on Ebay, I thought I would invest 15 pounds for your product rather than $476 NZ dollars plus P&P for a new rear window to NZ.

I must say that from placing the order over the internet on Dec 2nd it arrived in NZ on Dec 8th and I tried it that night on the rear Perspex window which was cloudy and slightly scratched. After a few applications over the past days, the window is now about 90% clear with still half a bottle left.

Thanks for a) a superb product, b) tremendous service UK-NZ in 6 days and c) an immediate rectification of a problem we have been trying to solve for 2 years.

Sincere thanks and season’s greetings.
