I wanted to know if anyone knew what was the best way to clean the transparent removable top and make it shine on the 2014 Stingray. Wax or Rain X?

Meguiars has a group of products under their Mirror Glaze including Clear Plastic Detailer and Cleaner that you might want to check into. Just stay away from any abrasive products.

Anyone have any additional suggestions since this thread in 2014? I should be receiving mine in the next week or two and as it is used, I want to do whatever I can to make it look right out of the showroom.

What Glen E said and then I also apply Rain-x
I thought the tops were coated with a clear coat and should be treated as a painted surface.

I don't believe there is any additional coating on our transparent tops from the factory. You could do any of a number of non-abrasive coating if you wanted to including CQuartz, waxes (specifically OK for plastic), etc.

I have just cleaned mine with the plastic interior cleaner or Windex,I would think it has a UV coating but it is quite normal for plexiglass, I would recommend getting the stick up sun shade if you are in an area that has a lot of sun,

Have to repeat what has been said. No abrasives and I'd be careful about heavy waxing as it the application and removal can lend it's self to fine scratches over time. Been using Plexus for decades on all my motorcycle windshields and helmet windshields with no issues.

I used vinegar and distilled water 50/50 then went over it with Mothers quick detail. Worked well
