Do you have a vinyl or cloth top?
Storing indoors or outside?
If outside, using a car cover?

Hmmm, not much different to be done then. Maybe use some cleaning/vinyl protectant and try not to break the rear window.

Or maybe 303 protectant http://www.303products.com/

Depending on how cold it gets, I'd be very hesitant to put the top down.

I'm also a fan of 303 products, but I don't think they're meant for winter protection. I will say they're great in smoldering heat and intense UV. Especially good at getting rubber trim to feel flexible again.

On another note, they gave away literally a ton of their stuff last sema, so I've got enough cleaner/protect-ant to last a few years. So probably won't be trying anything else for awhile.
Life is simple, you make choices, you don't look back.
