    to renovo or not

    Hi everyone, I'm New to Saab scene, but not Saab. I'be just bought a 2006 9-3 vert. I cleaned the soft top using miltons tabs, and I'be bought fabsil to proof it, but I want to bring the black up a bit first. I'be ordered renovo restorer for this. Anyone got any thoughts on this product?
    Cheers,

    Renovo is fine for colour restoration. Just use it carefully and try not to get it on paint. Plenty of people use it.

    Hi Neimur,
    I have used Renovo twice a year for the last two years I`ve owned my 93 convertible and I`m delighted how good it looks, as black as I hoped. The water is still beading and running off the roof after 5 months so I would say try it yourself.
    It`s done in 20 minutes and really easy to do. I can`t compare it to anything else but it does exactly what I want. As I said, still looking good after 5 months and my car is outdoors all the time. Have a damp cloth to hand to wipe down any liquid that runs off during application onto the bodywork but I`m sure it tells you that on the bottle.

    Well, had a go at the roof with renovo, and it came up pretty well. Left it for a day or two and gave it a litre of fabsil. I'm pretty pleased with the results. You guys were right about the renovo, it gets everywhere , when you're trying to work fast to keep a wet edge.

    New to saab ownership, and covertibles too. So Renovo then 2-3 days and fabsil. Does it melt plastic, as might mask off edges first to save hastle. polythene, or even cling film with masking tape edge, I was thinking. But might pop down to Wickes and get that decorators edging stuff. polythene dust sheet with masking tape already attached.
