OK, enlighten me, is the Raggtop spray a protective coating for the canvas top??
(I'm looking at a few 00 M Roadsters and need a few "what to look for " tips.)

Max,

Call me insensitive if you want, but I spray the top and what little overspray that goes on the windows or paint I just immediately wipe off.

It really speeds up the process if you let it dry in the sun after applying. I usually do two coats (three if it's a new top...). Be careful backing out of the garage with your windows covered

I do it in the sun also, works great. Usually three coats, but I've only done it once, beginning of last summer. Have not washed the top since. Stiff brushing is all it gets and the top looks brand new. Beads up beautifully in the rain.

So, is Raggtop a protective spray?

I didn't see a direct answer to elfhearse's question.

Who makes it? Is it worth using? What kind of life might I expect from it here in the Pacific NW?
