The original Chrysler Lebaron convertible top fabric was pinpoint vinyl for 1987-1989 models. 1990 cars featured both pinpoint vinyl and Chrysler Sailcloth vinyl. The Sailcloth then replaced pinpoint as the dealer convertible top fabric.
There is no physical difference between the construction of the two toppings; their surface textures differ. The Sailcloth was introduced as a new surface texture, to imitate the look of canvas.
Haartz Stayfast Canvas: We are now pleased to offer the 1990-95 Chrysler Lebaron convertible top in the very popular Haartz Stayfast Canvas. This is a great alternative for a better looking, more durable top.
About 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. If you do not see a canvas top listed for your car, please inquire and we will provide a quotation for it.
Classic Two Part Tops:
This top consists of two parts as originally designed. This is true of most convertible tops: the main top and the rear window section are integrated during the installation process. You can read about this in the link to our convertible top installation manual via the link at the bottom of this page.
If you feel comfortable using an air driven staple gun and with using contact cement then you are a candidate for do-it-yourself installation. You may read how this top is organized and installed via our summary link below.
There is no sewing involved in the installation. Contact cement work and stapling (or tacking) are used to attach the top.
Purchasing Main top and Rear Window Separately:
If either section of the top is intact, while the other requires replacing then order the replacement section. The rear window section can be installed to an existing main top, and vice-versa.
Plastic Rear Windows: While not original, these are very popular because of the savings. We use highest gauge plastic available. Owner-installers will be able to replace the rear window section if it scratches after, say, four or five years.
Zippered and Unzippered Windows:
You have the option of selecting a zippered or non-zippered back window. Please make this selection by specifying your choice in the checkout message box.
Hold Down Cables:
Cables threaded through the special hems in the top attach the top at the front and rear corners of the frame. We recommend new cables with each top.
Tack strips are embedded in the header (front) and the rear top bow (above rear window.) They should last through two tops.
The "pads" build out the top. They should also last through two tops.
Note that Chrysler issued a service bulletin #23-23-89/P-3754 which addressed premature wear through of dealer tops. For this reason we sell only the modified reinforced webbing straps as our padding kit. This helps cure the abrasion problem that was identified with original tops and pads.
Our packages contain what you need for a full top restoration. We have listed the popular packages and fabrics. The two part manual edited so that it is 1987-95 Lebaron specific is included with our top restoration packages.
We now stock hydraulic cylinders, motor-pumps, and hoses for your convertible tops. All are made to OEM specifications. Each can be ordered separately; however, when ordering hydraulic cylinders we recommend replacing both. The chances are that both hydraulic cylinders were manufactured at the same time: if one is on its way out the other may follow. If the top is raised and one hydraulic cylinder is working harder than the other the result over time can lead to a slightly bent convertible top frame. The replacement of both hydraulic cylinders will ensure that the top raises and lowers symmetrically.
Systems for this car take Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) and have a 5 year warranty when used with this fluid. Brake fluid should not be used as it voids the warranty. We also offer an installation manual when ordered.
The 12 volt motor-pumps include a mounting bracket with rubber grommets to reduce vibration.
We also offer a rebuilding service for motor-pumps. Not all are repairable, but it is less expensive to have one rebuilt than to buy a new one. The motor-pump would need to be sent to us for evaluation. Hoses come with all new fittings and are made specifically to fit your car.
Custom Carpet Kit: We now stock the custom carpet kit for your car. This carpet is made to OEM specifications and is molded to perfectly fit. The carpet is made with cut outs and is high quality cut pile. This will replace your old carpet perfectly. The carpet kit comes with an easy installation manual. Specify carpet color in checkout message box.
