Care of Convertible Top

I am a recent owner of a 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata. I am wondering if the convertible top needs any special care, other than simply washing it when I wash the rest of the car, to prevent sun damage, fading and dry-rot as it ages.

    Do you keep it garaged?

    Congrats on the new car!

    Yes, but over the years, the sun will tend to deteriorate the convertible's cloth top.

    Only takes about two here and you see a lot of trashed Miata tops around. :)

    Dunno, it's been decades since I've had a soft top (that one, on a Jeep, barely lasted three).

    I'll send some people this way - stand by.

    Raggtopp Fabric Cleaner and Fabric Protectant are good products; I use them on my Wrangler's top.
