B.) Build Your Own Mustang Top in Original Chrysler Sailcloth Vinyl -- or Replace a Part!

The Mustang convertible top is a two-part top, which means it comes in two pieces, a main top and a rear window section. These two pieces have to be integrated during installation. The benefit of this kind of convertible top is that you can replace just the part that's worn or damaged instead of having to invest in a whole new top. Here, we offer the Mustang top in original Chrysler Sailcloth Vinyl in pieces. Select the part or parts that you need.

    Important Information
    Original Factory Color(s): Black, Bright White, Saddle and Medium Parchment

    Fabrics:
    The original 1994-2004 Ford Mustang convertible top fabric was sailcloth vinyl.

    Some convertibles featured the Haartz Stayfast canvas fabric. Stayfast canvas has a butyl rubber core making it the most durable topping. Vinyl is easier to keep clean.

    Windows:
    The original rear window was glass. We also offer the less expensive plastic rear window top. Our plastic windows are all of the highest grade automotive plastic.

    Installation:
    This is a classic two part top: the rear window section is stapled, using stainless steel staples (to fabric trim and to the framework) above and below. Then the main top is installed over it. The process is summarized in the link below.

    If you are comfortable renting and using an air driven staple gun then you are a good candidate for do-it-yourself installation. This involves stapling and the use of contact or neoprene cement; there is no sewing.

    Our full restoration packages include the two part top manual along with supplemental Ford installation data from the shop manual.

    DVD Video:
    We list a video showing a full restoration performed in an upholstery shop. It is listed under "Accessories." Note: It may lack some of the instructional detail of the booklet, but it will inform about this restoration.

    Hold down cables:
    Cables are threaded through internal pockets in the main part of the top. They hold the top to the folding frame at the front and rear at the sides. Cables are hidden in the completed installation. New side cables are recommended with each new top.

    Most years' tops require short cables in the side (vertical) hems. These often last through two or even three tops. These flap cables were eliminated after 1999 and the side attachment flaps are secured with contact cement instead.

    Tacking strips:
    Tacking strips embedded in the front frame bow and the bow over the rear window receive the staples or tacks there.

    Top pads:
    A pair of wide belt pads run along the sides under the top. These are special Mustang pads which 'build out' the top.

    Hydraulics:
    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 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 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. Most are repairable and it is less expensive to have one rebuilt than to buy a new one. Your motor-pump should be wrapped well to prevent leakage. ____________________________________________________________________________________
    I received the top, rear window section in late December ....... Thanks for the prompt shipping and they matched perfectly. I probably would not attempted this task if I was not somewhat mechanical. I also purchase the DVD, and it made the job go smoothly. Its not that I want to do this every day, but it took it from a 10 difficulty to a 6. But, I watched video twice before attempting the replacement. While doing the installation, I had the DVD on my laptop again following the steps, and my wife says it looks like a professional instalation ........ Thanks Again Rick A. Chandler, AZ

    CONVERTIBLE TOP FABRICS
    Almost all manufacturers use Haartz fabrics. They may specify "heaviest weight" or "original replacement" in ways that seem reassuring. But they do not really tell the whole story. Please bear in mind that two things dominate, by far, the quality issue: (a) the manufacturing quality control in the factory that makes the top and (b) the care and thoroughness of the installation. There is a trade-off in weight: heavier is better for resisting tear through, but lighter is better for flexibility and abrasion from within that may arise from movement. Almost all our tops are a flexible medium density (36 oz.) fabric. Heavier is not better in most cases. Where it is, because of the top design, we will say so and the top will be made of the heavier vinyl.
    We will be happy to quote you on a "true double texture vinyl" top. This is a pinpoint with a butyl rubber core, like our stayfast. Generally these tops are about 30 percent higher in price than the regular pinpoint version.
    • Sonnenland® (View) is a German-made 3-ply topping made up of an acrylic twill-weave facing, a rubber inner-layer, and a polyester "dobby backing." The dobby backing is a knit-like weave original to many high-end foreign cars. Customers who value originality over cost often pay top dollar for Sonnenland, just to have that authentic "dobby backing," seen only when you look up at the roof of your convertible top from inside your car. Sonnenland canvas is a top-of-the-line material original to various Audi, BMW, and Jaguar convertibles, among others. Sonnenland Canvas can vary in terms of surface weave and/or weight for acoustic performance, but all Sonnenland Canvas promises elegance and long-lasting durability.
    • Twillfast® (View), also called Sonnendeck Canvas, is an American-made canvas - a cost-effective substitute for Sonnenland. Twillfast is usually a 3-ply topping (though some versions are 5-ply) with Polyester and/or Polyester/cotton backings. This material, original to certain Camaro, BMW, Mustang, and VW Beetle convertibles, among others, varies in terms of surface weave and/or weight for acoustic performance. Twillfast Canvas is identical to Sonnenland Canvas - elegant and durable - only it's less expensive. This is a top-notch convertible top material, one we often recommend to savvy customers who like a good buy and a quality product.
    • Stayfast Canvas (View) is an elegant, durable canvas original to cars like the Mazda Miata and the Nissan 370Z. Stayfast is commonly used in replacement convertible tops. Stayfast canvas has an acrylic square weave facing, a rubber inner-layer, and a cotton backing. As with other canvases, the rubber core gives the fabric long-lasting durability. Stayfast canvas is a sleek, beautiful canvas, usually less expensive than Twillfast, but it does not have the dobby backing offered in Sonnenland and Twillfast (Sonnendeck). Stayfast is a popular upgrade to vinyl convertible tops, and as with any canvas, is richer looking and has a higher wear rating than convertible tops made of vinyl.
    • Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl (View) is the most popular fabric. This vinyl 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.
    • Chrysler Sailcloth (View) is featured on many late LeBarons, Sebrings, certain Mustangs and other cars. It is structurally (wear quality) equivalent to the Haartz Pinpoint but has a different surface grain. The grain was designed to imitate the look of canvas. As you can see from the scan of this fabric, it is an exceptionally rich looking material. It is sometimes chosen for replacing convertible tops that originally featured pinpoint vinyl.
    • Cabrio Grain (View) is also structurally equivalent to the pinpoint. It has a pigskin outer grain vinyl as original to Volkswagen Cabriolets from 1984 onward and to Mazda Miatas and Mercury Capris.
    • A5S German Canvas (Robbins) The 100% Acrylic Twill Weave Surface Cloth receives a special flame singing treatment to remove the fabric knap; and is laminated to Black 100% Polyester Dobby backing.

      This is the original topping for Porsche Boxster and Cabrio convertible tops. 59 inches (150 cm) wide, made in Germany.
    • British Bison (also called Colonial Grain) (View) is the American made crush grain vinyl that imitates the much more expensive British Everflex vinyl original to many British convertibles. Color selection is limited. These are often referred to as 'crush grain' or 'leather grain' vinyls. They are structurally equivalent (wear rating) to the pinpoint, cabrio, and sailcloth vinyls.
    • British Everflex Vinyl (View) We are now pleased to offer British Everflex Vinyl for classic English tops. This is the original material used on British convertibles including Jaguar, Rolls Royce and many others. Imported from England, British Everflex vinyl is a supple vinyl with a rich appearance and is more durable than other vinyls. A good, less expensive alternative is Colonial grain vinyl. Colonial has the same texture but is less durable.
    • HV Denim (also called Twill Weave Vinyl) (View) is heavy duty sport material composed of a distinctive twill grain PVC outer layer and a polyester/cotton blend inside lining fabric.
    • Trilogy Acoustic Vinyl (View) A heavyweight vinyl that is often used on SUVs like Jeep, because the two-ply composite has the capacity to reduce noise by about 20 percent compared to standard vinyls like Sailcloth. The vinyl material is durable, promises long-lasting wear-and-tear, and resembles the sleek twill cloth commonly found on luxury convertible cars.
    • Haartz Twillfast RPC (View) This American-made canvas has a twill weave pattern and resembles German-made Sonnenland canvas. It is a great all-purpose canvas and, according to Haartz, is used on 99 percent of convertibles. It is stronger and more durable than Stayfast Canvas and offers more sound protection. Haartz rates Twillfast RPC as a mid-level acoustic product, compared to the low-level sound reduction offered on other top materials like Stayfast
