Top Gun fabric is finished to resist surface growth of mildew, but it should not be folded and stored wet. Accumulations of dirt and bird drop – pings which can support growth of mildew and result in fabric staining, should be removed periodically by recommended cleaning methods. The pigmentation in Top Gun fabric will not migrate into upholstery vinyls. If some surface rub-off should occur it can easily be removed with vinyl cleaner or mineral spirits. In areas where vigorous scubbing action will occur during towing, use of a buffer strip is recommended.
Top Gun fabric may be cleaned with a cleaning solution of 4 ozs. of Clorox and 2 ozs. of SOAP in a one gallon of warm (100 degrees F) water. DO NOT use deteregnts. Use a soft bristled brush to lift soil embedded in the fabric surface. Rinse thoroughly with clear water to remove soil and soap residue. After thorough cleaning, water repellency may be reduced. An application of Aqua-Tite silicone water repellent is recommended after the fabric has dried thoroughly. Use of other refinishing agents is not recommended in that some may damage the coating and void the warranty.
