Soft top widows ruined ?

I got the vinyl UV soft top protectant on the clear window part. Seems to have pretty much ruined the windows.....should have known better. I guess there is no way to get the stains off ?

which protectant ????? not 303, right??

If it reacted with the plastic then it is likely permanent.

But if it is just a coating or only reacted with the surface then you may be able to polish it off with one of the products for removing light scratches.

Novus1 & 2 come to mind and I think Meguiar's makes a few similar products

I've used 303 on my boat windows (plastic side curtains) with no issues... sorry to hear this product didnt work, did it have any use guides or warnings? perhaps talk to the manufacturer about some restitution...

I suggest you contact them. Looking on the website RaggTopp Convertible Top Care by Wolfsteins: RaggTopp Convertible Car Top Detailing Products for fabric & vinyl tops. convertible top cleaner, fabric , it specifically says " Because they do not contain silicone, RaggTopp products will not harm your paint, chrome, glass, or plastic windows of your convertible.

Disaster avoided. Rubbing alcohol fixed it. Seems I used too much and did not wipe off well.....great customer rep by Raggtopp !

Glad it turned out OK for you, I've heard Raggtopp is one of the best products for soft-tops. It didn't make sense that a soft-top treatment would cause damage to the windows, since most soft-tops have plastic windows. All's well that ends well.
