Same problems to all Saab 900 tops, I cannot agree that the tan top is a better alternative. For my opinion itīs even worse (I have one on my 900t conv.) cause: - the tan cloth is thinner than the black/blue one that means: - it scrubbs more (spots are more visible) - you see all folding edges/spots - it seems to by faster dirty - when itīs wet itīs darker - the cloth is not so responsible against folding/scrubbing cracks easy! And to 1: No, thereīs nothing you can do, that helps really!!! (I tried all) Maybee one thing: change it! and get a new one... - regards, RCS- 1993 900t conv.
