Stopping the top operation during operation won't cause any problems. In fact it's absolutely necessary during diagnosis/maintenance. How else could latches be lubed/adjusted? If the top is left in any position between opened/closed it will eventually "time out" and gravity will allow it to move in whatever direction is easiest, but this shouldn't have any adverse effect on subsequent operation. As far as cleaning is concerned you've got it easy. Clean the rear glass in the normal manner. The 107's and 129's were the tough ones, due to the plastic rear window. I've used a product called Rubber Care for the seals and weather-stripping for several years with no problems. The canvas should clean up easily with mild soap and a soft sponge. If you have any stubborn stains to remove perhaps a post in the Detailing Forum will help.
