Have you tried www.renovointernational.com

Thanks, for the idea. I guess we're both on the same page. The retailer link was to the Renovo product page. And no, I haven't tried the stuff yet.
People all over the Internet have been writing about the products, but nobody seems to know how to spell the product name. I'd see a post, type the name of the product (using the spelling provided) into a search engine and, of course, get no hits. When I finally found a post with the correct spelling, my search was much easier. That's where I found the retailer (with the 1-800 number). Now I just have to find a Canadian supplier. I'll probably just call up my local parts dealer and ask him to order the stuff if I decide to try it.
Mind you, I'm not too concerned about anything at this moment. My spider is safely tucked away, and I can't even see it until April or May, or whenever the guy who owns the barn where the car is stored decides to kick out all the cars he has been housing over the winter. (Which is why a post in another forum about leaving an Alfa for a month-and-a-half provided me with a great deal of amusement.)
I know that wax is useful for restoring plastic windows, but I don't know if the Renovo stuff is any better than any other off-the-shelf product. And while I'd love to do something about the marks on the roof, I'm a bit leary to start applying unknown cleaners/polishes/dyes/chemicals/miracle cures. So far the top has been watertight, and I don't want to put anything on it that will change this condition.
CHF, I'm really sorry to hear about your frustrating experience with the top. There's got to be a solution out there. I hope you are able to find it.
