TOP GUN marine fabric is guaranteed for a five (5) year period against excessive loss of color or strength under normal exposure conditions, including sunlight, rot, mildew and atmospheric chemicals. It is manufactured by MarChem Coated Fabrics, 500 Orchard Street, New Haven, MO!
TOP GUN fabric is finished to resist surface growth of mildew, but it should not be folded and stored while wet. Accumulations of dirt and bird droppings which can support growth of mildew and result in fabric staining, should be removed periodically by recommended cleaning methods.
The pigmentation in TOP GUN fabric will not migrate into upholstery vinyls. It some surface rub-off should occur it can easily be removed with vinyl cleaner or mineral spirits. In areas where vigorous scrubbing action will occur during towing, use of a buffer strip is recommended.

CLEANING YOUR COLIE DELUXE COVER
As recommended by MarChem Coated Fabrics, Inc. manufacturer of Top Gun
~Large Capacity Container (30+ gallon) with lid, such as a trash can or something that will not be easily accessible by children or pets. Be sure the container is clean of debris or rust.
~ Bleach 1 gallon bleach: 30 gallons water
~Soft Bristle Scrub Brush
~ All Purpose Cleanser We have found that mild, non-abrasive cleanser WITHOUT bleach such as Fantastik, Mean Green, and etc. work well.
~If your the cover wants to float, put weight on it
To remove any mildew growth and loosen dirt deposits from the surface of the cover, soak it in a solution of bleach water (1 gallon bleach : 30 gallons of water) in a large capacity container with a tight lid for 24-48 hours, depending on the degree of mildew accumulations; rotating every few hours to insure that all areas of the piece are being exposed to the bleach solution. For large pieces, soak one section at a time for maximum exposure. For best results, weight the piece down with jugs of water or the like (something that won¹t bleed on the fabric or degrade in bleach) in order to completely submerge the piece. NOTE: If your cover has any vinyl windows, DO NOT SUBMERGE THEM! Bleach will mar or cloud them permanently. You can, however, soak the areas around the window a little at a time. Contact MarChem Coated Fabrics for further verbal instructions regarding cleaning pieces with windows.
While wet, lay the piece across a clean, flat surface such as a picnic table or driveway and thoroughly scrub the entire surface with an all purpose cleanser. Spray off thoroughly with water several times.
Allow several hours to dry completely. If no refinishing is necessary, treat with AQUA-TITE Silicone Water Repellent.
