Hey Guys.....Couple questions....Is there a compound/polish on the market to make them a bit clearer? I use Rainex window cleaner to clean them, but not sure if that's the best for vinyl. When you store them, do you fold them or roll them. Just trying to get the most miles out of them, also on cold days they are a pain to put up, I know I should put them up on a warm day to stretch them....Thanks

    I always stored mine flat, stacked on top of themselves under the cuddy cushions. Otherwise, maybe find a piece of carpet roll tube to roll them, and keep them from getting creased.

    I take a length of thin wall 4 inch PVC to roll them up for storage. The other thing I do to protect from scratching the windows is I bought a length of flannel bolt material (from a sewing shop). I lay the flannel on a clean surface then put the vinyl window on top of it, roll a full layer of flannel on the 4 inch tube then roll it up. The flannel protects the vinyl from the zippers from making marks on the material plus protecting from scratches. I clean them with plain water, dry with micro fiber cloth and at the start of fishing season wax them with Collinite Insulator Wax no.845 for water shedding.

    Plexus worked on the Grady and WorldCat. Will use it on the Allied too. Ditto about rolling up. I put a towel in between them sometimes.
