Hood reproofers - suggestions?

Postby binarypunk » Thu Nov 14, 2013 2:39 pm

It's time to reproof my hood again...

Last time I used renovo stuff, because it came in the boot when I bought the car, and it seems to have done ok (2 years not bad?) but I was just wondering if there are any other recommendations or a non-specific cheaper product that works just as well...or better?

Renovo is the only one I've used and it works.

Not much help I guess :-D

If its a vinyl hood then boot polish is a good cheap alternative. I use Renovo on mine too though :coffee:

I figured as much... I just like to check every now and then that I'm not missing out on the latest big thing. :-)

Renovo it is...it's looking a little grey too so picked up the cleaner and reviver at the same time to give it the works when I've got a moment next week.
