Hi, new to the forum so forgive me if this has been asked before. I have an RCZ Magnetic in Nera Black with the black pack. I've had it for a few years now, but am ashamed to say over the last winter I have been somewhat lax with cleaning duties (I blame the weather and my husband!) As a result my matt roof arches are looking a mess! They appear mottled and seem to have water marks on them all the time, I'm guessing a lot of it is due to careless rinsing on the odd occasion I have managed to wash it inbetween rain showers (I use Meguiers Gold). So, question 1) - how do I give them a really good clean, 2) - what's the best product to restore them back to black and should I seal them with something? Cheers. :helpme:

There is a polish on the market called Autosmart Topaz. It is great for bringing back your black arches to their best. It's also good for plastic or paintwork, and doesn't leave a white powder residue on wiping off.

It's what I use on mine.....

I use the Topaz on my Black Magnetic and it works a treat.

Never had a watermark on the arches yet.

Thanks for the replies (looks fab DKZ!!) Quick question does this Topaz stuff cover up the marks that are currently on there? Or do I need to use some stuff to get rid of them first then use it? Cheers.

Definitely. It will remove any marks and have them looking like new.

Smells nice too.
