Cleaned my convertible top

When I purchased my 63 Series 62 Convertible a couple of years ago the previous owner was not very studious when it came to cleaning. I brought the car home and cleaned it top to bottom.

I thought I'd give cleaning one more try with a soap bar from the 1893…See More

I would prefer to be as original as possible. Thanks

There is a restoration service called The Horn Works who my son…
