Question ZD Fairlane:vinyl roof

Have just been lucky enough to become the owner of a very nice ZD Fairlane and was wondering if anyone could give me some hints as to how best look after the black vinyl roof.

My Vinyl roof help tips

1. Keep it out of the sun and the rain.
2. Always park in a garage.
3. Wash it with a quality car wash cleaner
4. Never put any Armor all or anything else of the like because although it may make it look good for a while they they cause it to dry out and crack.
5. Budget for a new one because whatever you do, they don't last forever and a bad one really detracts from the car even if the rest of the car is good. Mine cost around $400 to do about 4 years ago.

Got some pics. My next project after the mustang is a ZC/ZD fairlane.

Be a nice ride though!

Learn from other people's mistakes. You won't live long enough to make them all.

If there's commotion coming from the passenger seat, and nothing but earth going round and round outside the windows,.......then everything is not as it seems!

The only time you have too much fuel, is when you're on fire!

Re: ZD Fairlane:vinyl roof

also, keep an eye out for rust bubbles under the vinyl, and repair them as soon as possible, because often the vinyl holds moisture and encourages rust formation. Car sounds really nice, i've always liked ZA-ZD fairlanes, they're so long!!

"If it ain't broke, fix it untill it is" !!!!!

The best advice I can give when it comes to vinyl roofs is to use FLING!
