Regular washing with soapy water (car was soap) is really all you need. Also, don't open the top when it is below freezing, etc (if you need to for service, ie access to the top engine cover, let the top warm up before opening it)

Thanks, doc.
Lucky I live in Hawaii, there will be no freezing. Do I have to wipe it dry everytime after rain when I get back to my house? Thanks.

Good info, I didn't know that about the plastic rear window, and it having to warm up....
I live in NYC, so of course.....if you follow weather lol you know we have below 0 weather.

Thanks for the info!
Is there any way I can buy and install a hard top cover for it or something?

Thank you!
