MG MGF Technical - cleaning the black tono cover

Any product you can use to clean vinyl hoods, like those seen on some midgets and B's should do it- IF we're talking about the same thing; my tonnuex (sp?) is vinyl and not canvas.
Over here there is a product called Renovo that seems to work well on vinyl. If it is canvas you'll need a dedicated canvas/ fabric cleaner. Autoglym do products for both types of material, ask at a motor store for their product range- I reckon you have better weather for cleaning over there!!!

So do all mgs in the uk have vinyl tops the only vinyl types i have seen are on i think the t model
i will have a look at the product autoglym i asked at the mg car club i am in but putting the colour back dosent seem to happen mine is realy faded
thanks Andrew

The mgf /tf have the stayfast hood (i presume you mean hood) What mg have you got..
If you have a mgf tf the product to use is renovo for the stayfast hoods.

err ...
Just seen one of your other posts it is a mgf you have.
all the mgf tf in the uk have the "stayfast material " for the hoods , from what i understand it is a modern lighter weight alternative to mohair with a 10 year plus life span . It looks like mohair but is a cheaper nearly as good item.
The hood cover (tonueo) yes i,ve spelt it wrong !! is a vinyl type material which should be just a wipe clean on this age of car.
