Hey Bob,

Thanks so much for the “care package” you sent me along with the Ultra Proofer for my 2002 Saab 9-3! This past weekend I finally decided to finish “proofing” my convertible top…What a great experience!

The instructions / tips you gave were spot on. I had already used the Canvas Cleaner to prep my top. It turned out that I had just enough Ultra Proofer to do the job – with the 500ml bottle I already had plus the second bottle I ordered from you – there was just enough for two coats. It did a beautiful job and went on just as you said it would. I’ve attached a picture of my 11 year old car with its original top – looking like new!

It hasn’t rained yet so I haven’t seen the “proofing” in action yet but I have what may be an even better story to pass along to you about how powerful the Ultra Proofer must be!

When I “proofed” my convertible top on Saturday, I applied the proofer after pouring it into an empty one gallon plastic ice cream tub. After finishing the job, I wanted to reuse the tub so I rinsed it out and scrubbed it very thoroughly (for several minutes and vigorously) with a washcloth, lots of soap, and very hot water. I then took the soap-filled washcloth and scrubbed out the inside of the lid as well. After rinsing, I noticed that water on the inside of the lid beaded up like water on a freshly waxed car. Even after being filled with lots of soap and suds, used for scrubbing, and then rinsed with hot water, the washcloth still had some Ultra Proofer in it that was still able to “wax” the ice cream tub lid! The proof came when I flipped the lid over and ran water on the outside of the lid – totally different – there was no beading of water at all!

At this point, I can’t wait till it rains! Dry at last!
