Hello Fellow Spider Peeps!!

My wife was poking fun at me today, saying I am the only one who probably does this to a rag top. After washing her, the car...not my wife 😆 , and she was all dry, I noticed a bunch of "strings? or hair?" on the top. The usual soft brush I used to wash it did not remove any of it. So, being the ingenious guy I can be, I grabbed my lint brush!! It worked like a freaking champ!!

The wife came out...probably attention jealous...and laughed and said I was crazy and obsessive for doing this. She said it in a fun way, not mean. So, it got me thinking...am I the only one? I turned to her and said, "Honey, I will scrub you and wax you, and then rub conditioning cream all over you tonight also. Don't be jealous." She raised an eyebrow, and said..."Well, I will hold you to that!"

So I ask, has anyone else done this? I can't be the first....

Be not afraid!
You are not the only one. I regularly vacuum,using a brush attachment, the top on Moonracer and keep a lint roller handy in the shop/garage for those moments when I spy a wayward speck of lint or discover that some other unsavory foreign material has settled upon and is spoiling the pure blackness of his top.

I have a bald head so if anything I will pass the lint roller over myself! :LOL:

I truly have found my tribe!!!! Bless you all.

Post #5...meant to say "SWIFFER" duster. Darn spell check!
I also use a Swiffer duster, on the exterior the next few days after a good nano coating (wax), and the interior.

PS...the wife is LHAO. Good Times!~! 😆

Yup! I clean my ‘Fiata‘ show room clean and I don’t want to see even 1 piece of lint on the top to ruin the view of my 3 hour Detail work!
