One Kit is sufficient to completely restore the colour to any convertible car roof!
The products in our kit are specifically designed to work on all fabric or canvas roofs, whether they are on convertibles, boats/yachts or awnings. The kit is not suitable for use on roofs made from Vinyl however. Identifying which type of roof you have is relatively simple, if you have a canvas or fabric soft-top; it will look and feel similar to tent material. If you have a Vinyl roof; it will look and feel like plastic with a grain in it.
If you do find that your roof is made from Vinyl, our Leather Colourant Kit is ideal for the job and is used by both professionals and enthusiasts alike with amazing results on both Leather and Vinyl surfaces.
We have created the kit to contain everything you would need to fully restore or change the colour of your convertible roof and can achieve professional results using only the products contained within the kit. For those who would prefer to spray the final coats of FabriCoat on the roof and attain a perfectly even coat, or for those who wish to change the colour, we also offer the FabriCoat Sprayer.
This provides a quick and easy method of ensuring a really even distribution of colour to the roof with each coat, adding the perfect finishing touch. But as stated, this is purely an optional addition, a full restoration can be carried out using only the items included in the kit.
This depends on the job you are doing but we have included a full 1 litre of FabriCoat in the kit, with the corresponding 500ml of Penetrating Solution. This will provide more than enough to restore colour to, or change the colour of, any convertible roof. In the majority of cases it should also be sufficient to cover the size of awnings and yacht/boat covers.
For those that are undertaking larger jobs, we can supply more FabriCoat and Penetration solution individually, without having to purchase the full kit again, as both products are offered separately on the website.
No, both the FabriCoat and the Penetrating solution in the kit are completely non-harmful to the paintwork on your car, boat or yacht. If you do get any unintentional transfer on your paintwork while applying it you can simply wipe it away with a damp cloth, easy!
Yes, this is very important to ensure that the FabriCoat adheres to the fibres of the material and ensures as much of the dirt and mould in the roof is removed before colouring. To clean the roof we have included 1 litre of Fabric Cleaner & Spotter, spray this liberally on the area being cleaned and agitate with a Tampico brush and leave for 10-15 minutes. After 10-15 mins is up, come back and wipe down thoroughly with a clean cloth. Do this across the entire surface of the roof.
We also include 250ml Mould Remover in the kit, which should be used after cleaning, on any areas of mould (note that there can be a build up in the folds close to the edges of the roof, use a scraper to remove as much of this as possible), then spray lightly over the entire roof to ensure any spores are killed.
Following these steps will provide and excellent surface to begin restoring or changing the colour of your roof.
First treat the entire area, focusing on the worst affected parts, with the Mould Remover included in the kit, this will kill the mould and any spores on contact and make sure they do not grow back. Then, to remove any remaining stains, clean thoroughly with Fabric Cleaner & Spotter. We also include 1 litre of this in the kit, it really does provide everything you need!
We do a small range of standard colours, designed to cover the most common colours that soft-tops are produced in. These include Black, Dark Brown, Dark Blue, Dark Red, Dark Green and Light Grey. Standard kits with these colours can be purchased directly through the Website.
For those who require something a bit more unusual, we also have a professional colour matching service, offering a truly unlimited range of colours. To request a match, simply download this form, fill it in and send it in to us along with a sample of the colour you wish us to match.
Full instructions are offered on the Website, in the guide video, and on the instruction leaflet provided with your kit. Applying FabriCoat to your soft-top is very easy, simply work it into the material using the sponge and cloth set included in the kit, purchase one of our FabriCoat sprayers and apply with that, or apply using an airbrush. Excellent results can be achieved using all of these methods.
Yes, we certainly advise you apply a protective treatment to the roof after you have finished your restoration/colour change and allowed time for it to properly dry. As with everything else you might need for the job, we have included a full 500ml of Fabric Protector in the kit, this is sufficient to cover any convertible roof or average sized awning/boat cover.
Spray the Fabric Protector liberally onto the entire surface of the roof and allow to dry. This forms a protective barrier and repels water, dirt and staining, this not only keeps your roof looking newer for longer, but also makes it far easier to clean and maintain.
Once applied, the FabriCoat will be 'touch dry' in approximately one hour and will completely cure in 24 hours. Ensure that you leave at least 1 hour after application before applying the Fabric Protector.
