Canvas Top Protection

What does everyone use for preventative care for the canvas poptop (Scotchguard)? Also, what do you use to clean your plexi windows?

I use 303 Marine Multi-Surface Cleaner for the Canvas & the Glass, then 303 Marine Fabric Guard on the Canvas after its thoroughly dried from the cleaning. Can use the same Cleaner & Guard for the awning (if you have one). This stuff worked great on my boat, and marine products IMO are better since they cope with the harsh environment - constant sun, mold & mildew issues, and salt water.

May also consider addressing other parts associated with the pop-top while you are at it:
LUBE POP TOP HARWARE: Silicone spray for X-bar trax at base and also spray into the cavity where the cross bars meet the pop-top – get it inside the pivot points), grease the actuator bars (silver bar at base of cross bars) at least one per year.

LUBE ZIPPERS with a zipper wax – keeps them lubricated and allows them to slide easily (all types on the market)

For plastic windows (helmet faceshields, soft top windows), Plexus.

This is what I use;
Zippers:

Silicone spray:
https://www.amazon.com/CRC-Ounce-050...00BXKZUG&psc=1

EDIT: For the zippers, I also utilize a Q-tip (that has some of the zipper wax applied to it) so i can distribute the product more evenly across the zipper teeth

I use this stuff on the vinyl windows......start with #2 and end with #1 unless they are really dingy/scratched.

..and use a soft cloth, no paper towels......

Mike from Burbank hope the shocks worked out for you. May not be the correct thread but have been looking at solutions for dust thru my rear doors, seems most of it is from the bottom. Recommendations?
I just ordered the Novus to try it out.
