Can I Install This Top Myself ? We believe that the installation is within the capabilities of a handy, patient owner. There is neither sewing nor stapling. The top is one piece. Seals are pried loose and reinstalled after the new top. Seal retainers are unscrewed and reapplied. The top is held to the frame via contact cement with various flaps, etc. needing to be aligned and glued to their proper locations. (Pop rivets may be required if webbing needs replacing.)

Original Material: German Sonnenland Canvas

Alternate Materials: Sonnendeck (Twillfast) canvas, Haartz Stayfast Canvas, Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl.

About The Fabrics:

German Sonnenland Canvas is the original German made canvas used in many Mercedes, Porsche, BMW and other convertibles. It's general construction is very similar to the other two canvases. It is hard to tell the surfaces apart among the three. But the manufacturing specifications make this the longest lasting top. There is an approximate twenty percent greater wear rating for Sonnenland than for Haartz Stayfast. Some of this is due to the abrasion resistance of the exterior canvas. This is a factor in certain tops where the framework design tends to produce friction between the top's surface and the car's hardware. (It is a well known 'trade secret' that the Haartz Division of Glen Raven Mills purchased the Sonnenland factory.)

Sonnendeck Canvas (also called 'Twillfast') is an American made canvas, true double texture topping like the Haartz Stayfast. Many purists who own Mercedes and other German cars want to see the particular German weave (that is called "dobby weave") when they look up inside the car. Haartz Stayfast canvas has a plain (unwoven) inner lining. So for Porsche, Mercedes and BMW owners who will spend a little more in order to see that "dobby" weave we offer a fabric called Sonnendeck (in addition to the original German Sonnenland or Happich canvas. The wear rating of Sonnendeck is also greater than for Haartz, by perhaps 10%. This is due to the slightly heavier inner lining and subtle bonding specification differences.

Haartz Stayfast Canvas has a canvas outer layer and a preshrunk cotton inner layer. The two are bonded with and separated by a butyl rubber core. It is this core that makes the fabric last a very long time, with both better static and dynamic wear ratings than vinyl toppings. Haartz Stayfast is the American substitute for the German canvases used in Mercedes, Porsche, BMW, some models of Mustang and Lebaron and others. Canvas is widely regarded as "richer looking" than vinyl. It is a little harder to clean. The inside of the top is pre-shrunk cotton. The inner lining is usually black.

Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl's design is original to most American cars from the fifties to the nineties. Pinpoint refers to the little dots or pips that you see if you look closely at the vinyl surface. European cars, such as the old Beetles and others also used pinpoint vinyl as the topping fabric.

Rear Window:
The patented BMW zippered rear window is not available except at a BMW dealer. Our tops are made with the large green tinted plastic rear window, fixed into the top.

Retainer and Seal:
The front seal and its metal retaining bar can usually be transferred to the new top. We do list replacements for these parts. They are under "Accessories."

Top Straps:
The BMW elastic straps are a vital part of the restoration. Please check your top straps for wear. If the top frame straps are too worn the top will no longer fold properly and cuts or holes may occur from raising or lowering the top. New straps are listed under "Accessories."

Hold Down Cables:
Cables are threaded through the side cable pockets in the top. They attach at their fronts and rears, securing the top to the frame there. Cables are hidden after installed. We recommend new cables with each top.
