Care instructions for correct use of Pick-Up Canvas.
Please read this before unpacking and fitting your new Pick Up Canvas.
We have tried our best to make our reproduction the same grade cotton canvas as the originals with a high index waterproof layer on the inside, water-splashing-proof on the outside and also with pre-shrinking treatment to standardize the shape of the canvas. However, due to the nature of cotton canvas, if you decide to use your pick up with the canvas on under all weathers, we suggest that you apply some waterproof spray on the outside of your canvas while it is completely dry and also keep all the eyelets on all sides of the canvas securely attached onto all metal hoops on all drop gates as long as possible while using the canvas on your Pick Up for the first few months to allow it to settle down, especially when it is raining or in moist conditions, as VW would have recommended with their original canvases initially. You may repeat applying waterproof spray as required.
When you take the canvas off your Pick Up and store it, please make sure it is completely dry, fold it carefully into the original carry bag and put it into a sealed plastic bag for indoor storage.
