RaggTopp Convertible Top Protectant
by Mike Phillips
After having my truck's Bikini Top made, I treated it with 2-3 applications of RaggTopp Fabric Protectant to ensure it was waterproof because when it rains here in Stuart, Florida; it comes down by the bucket loads.
At the time of this review, it's easily been about a month since I treated the Bikini Top. This truck is parked out side 24 hours a day and 7 days a week so it sees ALL the rain we get, as well as a lot of wind and dirt and dust in the air. For all these reasons I wanted to get a good waterproof coating applied before the top had any dirt penetrated into the weave of the cloth.
This first picture is a far shot looking just past the Surfboard brackets. The water pools in 4 areas that sink down with the weight of the accumulated water but the water never penetrates into the inside of the fabric.
At the higher elevations of the top surrounding the edge of the windshield, the water beads up. Either place, the water never penetrates the material. It just beads up or pools.
My top was new and clean. If you're working on an older top you should consider getting the kit and cleaning the top well before sealing it with the protectant.
