After recent heavy rains our windsor windcheater poptop van. is showing some water stain on the edge of the ceiling, it is only minor as it was not at a stage where it dripped. Other than go to the extent of replacing a sheet, has anyone got some ideaas on what might remove the stain with out making it look to obvious?

Cheers Axle.

I would fix the leak first and make sure it is waterproof before anything else. The only way to loose that stain is replacing the sheet. The ply is a paper overlay and can't handle getting wet.
Have a talk to Windsor and find out if they sell you a sheet.

Hi Reiner, Have resealed the affected area today, bit silly the way they have constructed the outside of the poptop at the edge!!, there is no where for the water to go until it builds up because the ripples in the outside alluminium sheeting prevent it from running off straight away, and there dosen't appear to be any drain holes anywhere. like the van but theres room for improvement as usual. Will have a talk with windsor this week, its afew years old now, so will see what they say.

Cheers Axle.

hi mate, i have Windsor rapid that had a roof leak, when not in use i keep the front down to help water run off. also the raised bits in the aluminum can be gently nudged down with a blunt object, i used a piece of 6mm round rod and hammer for this. this helps the water run off as it makes a Chanel for the run off.
cheers Shane.
