Convertible top replacement
Submitted By: fixb52s
Date Created: 04-25-2006
Description: The top on this car is shot. The rear window was gone, and the canvas is torn and cut. It might have been reusable if items were not thrown at/on it when it sat in the carport. When this car was purchaced it seemed like an easy thing to replace, but in reality it is not for the weak of heart or inexperenced. Some knowledge of fabric work is helpful, along with the ability to take your time. This job is not to be rushed. Items required are the new top, glue (contact cement) either spray or brush, RTV black sealant, tape, adhesive solvent and new parts as required (hardware, seals, etc.).
