    Lots of good input, I should be getting to refurbishing the top soon. I am going to do my best to write up the process as well. I still have not picked a color, I may stay with white or an off-white depending on the choice of paint or bed liner finish.
    I just watched "It" and I think it would be cool to do a color scheme based on Pennywise, but it may be too much work to repaint the entire Jeep to match the color scheme. Plus, I'd rather dump my money into the driveline before I pretty it up.

    Here is how I cleaned up my black factory hardtop.
    1) Low pressure wash by hand with light automotive detergent
    2) Magic eraser, went through half a decent sized box.
    3) S100 Paste wax coating.

    FWIW, I'd go with black, but the white top is certainly different. And that was an amazing deal on the hardtop. I found one on Craigslist off of a 2006, and that cost me a grand here in South Florida. The top's in excellent shape tho and he delivered it to me so I thought is was a fair deal.
