It gets cleaned regularly - not matter what I clean it with these marks won't go away!

Renovo call tomorrow me thinks

Hot soapy water and a scrubbing (upholstery) brush on a weekly basis mate. Once you get on top of it, normal weekly washes as of the rest of the car.

Once you get it cleaned off reproofed with Fabsil Gold, it's a lot cheaper easier to apply and is superb. Havent found a better proofer for the hood

If you do this and use biological washing powder for the soap it will clean off the green mould first time if you scrub it well, just seal the roof afterwards.
