Original Topping: The dealer tops were often made of Sonnendeck (Twillfast) Canvas. This is a very durable and beautiful fabric. It has a woven inner cloth and a fabrication that makes it extremely durable. For many owners, especially those considering self-installation, putting on a Cabrio Vinyl top might be more cost effective. (The labor cost of installation incurred a little faster than with canvas is not a factor when self installing.) We offer these tops in Sonnendeck Canvas and in Cabrio vinyl.
Original Colors: The dealer canvas tops were either black, green, or dark blue (with rare exceptions.) Vinyl tops were black, beige, gray and white. (We are offering the 'Cabrio Pigskin grain" vinyl. Twill VW vinyl is not available in the aftermarket at this writing.) We will be happy to provide a Sonnendeck Canvas top, or a Cabrio vinyl top, in any of the colors shown. Please review the scanned swatches via the above links and jot down your color choice. You may specify it in the checkout message box.
Our Manufacturer: We are pleased to be a Germanex dealer. This manufacturer specializes in German convertible tops. The tops are manufactured as original, from original patterns, with correct detailing and structural aspects throughout.
Premature Window Damage: Some owners are experiencing unhappy shattering of the rear window during normal operation of the top. This is probably due to a combination of the tight design in conjunction with normal vibration wear. This 'street experience' has led us to develop a plastic rear window version for this top. The dealer replacement top has a defroster rear window installed in the top, as original. The plastic rear window top uses a 40 guage polyvinyl rear window instead. The plastic rear window does eliminate the danger of rear window shatter.
Hold Down Cables: Installation of the new top requires the insertion of VW cables through the side cable hems of the top. The cable ends attach to the framework and tie down the top fore and aft. If your top has not frequently been raised and lowered, it may be feasible to re-use the existing cables, removing them from the old top and installing in the new one. New cables are listed as accessories, below.
Headliner: The headliner (inner roof lining) may be lowered and re-used in a top restoration job. However, if your headliner requires replacing, we do offer the beige cloth headliner. It is listed with accessories below. If you wish to change the color of your headliner, please inquire as we can have your headliner custom made in other cloth colors.
