Hey!

I have a 53 reg StreetKa with a very green roof! It was just around the edges but has been spreading since the snow and is over the roof now, anyone got any ideas how to get rid of and then prevent it?

Also some little bugger stole my Streetka side badges, looked on ebay and non are listed, so does anyone know of a stockist?

Cheers!!

I would use a degreaser like Carlack68 Special Cleaner to remove the mould if its very stubborn.

yep not good for you breathing in mould spores though the issue really is where did it come from and how there must be damp of some sort in the car wether theres a leak wet carpets etc you would have to leave the car for months to get mould on it like you describe until you find the cause it may come back again and again if youre lining is light coloured you may find its badly marked when you clean it

You could always try some APC with a hard brush then monitor where it starts from if it comes back.

I actually use el cheapo ASDA wheel cleaner on it. Spray on a wet roof, rub with a normal car sponge intil it foams up, and rinse it off with the hose.

On the outside of the roof, its like when you don't wash a fish tank, that sort of effect, but as the weather has got worse so has the green patches. Thanks for the suggestions I'll have a go and see if they can bring it back to black...
