Hood Cleaning

One of the most terrifying tasks to face MX5 owners is cleaning the hood. It looks so easy to ruin and probably is! The best bit of advice is in a Mercedes handbook, don’t wash the hood every time you wash the car – it often doesn’t need it and a gentle brushing may suffice. When required use a lukewarm, diluted, soft fabric detergent like Stergene and apply with a sponge. Leave for a couple of minutes then rinse thoroughly with clean water. Remove the excess water with a dense sponge and allow to dry; do not lower the roof until it is completely dried out. You should not need to re-proof the hood for at least a year but when you do you can get the proper Mazda kit from MX5Parts.co.uk.
