UPHOLSERY HOW TOO's / Vinyl Roof - defective?
« on: September 22, 2011, 12:44:39 PM »
Bob et al,

About 4 years ago we put a new black vinyl roof on my '66 New Yorker.  I bought it through SMS Auto Fabrics but I'm thinking they just re-sell them.  Anyhow, I noticed after washing the car that it looked like I hadn't got the top clean, it appears to have small spots of dirt and/or hard-water marks on it.  However, they dont' scrub out, and closer investigation reveals that in these small areas the vinyl seems to have actually changed from black to gray, and somehow the gray areas seem to be softer than the black areas.  To me, it's almost like the vinyl's lost its outer "skin", if that makes any sense.  I've tried to photograph it but so far haven't had good luck.

Anyone have any thoughts on what might be happening, what might have caused it, and what I should do?

Appreciate the assistance!
