Choosing Your Chevrolet Malibu Convertible Top
We offer the Chevy Malibu convertible top in two fabrics: Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl and Haartz Stayfast Canvas. All of our Chevy Malibu convertible tops are made from original dealer patterns. Here's what you need to know about each material before you make your purchase:
Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl: Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl is the most popular convertible top fabric. The original Chevrolet Malibu convertible top was made of Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl. In fact, this fabric is original to most American cars made before 1993. Pinpoint refers to the little dots on the vinyl surface. Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl is a two-ply composite with a PVC outer layer and a cotton inner lining. If you take care of a Haartz pinpoint vinyl convertible top, it can easily last 10 years.
Haartz Stayfast Canvas: Haartz Stayfast is the American substitute for the German canvases used in Mercedes, Porsche, BMW, as well as some Mustang and Lebaron models. This canvas is a little richer looking than the vinyl. It's also a little harder to clean. Stayfast canvas has a canvas outer layer and a preshrunk cotton inner layer. The two are bonded by a butyl rubber core, which makes the fabric last a very long time. Stayfast Canvas has both better static and dynamic wear ratings than vinyl toppings.
Can I install the Chevrolet Malibu convertible top myself?
Yes! The Chevrolet Malibu requires a two-part convertible top, meaning there's the main top and a rear window section, called the "curtain." The two convertible top sections are integrated during the installation process.
If you can use an air-driven staple gun, and are patient and methodical, you are very likely to be able to install the Chevrolet Malibu convertible top. Installing your own Chevy Malibu convertible top can save you hundreds of dollars in restoration labor costs!
We offer a profusely illustrated convertible top manual, now in its fourth edition. This covers, in detail, all the steps for do-it-yourself convertible top installation. In particular, the manual applies to cars, like the Chevrolet Malibu, with a two-part convertible top. You may purchase the manual to review it before purchasing a convertible top package. We would then pro-rate future purchase of the convertible top when it is ordered.
In most cases, our convertible top packages include everything you need to install your own Chevy Malibu convertible top. (Convertible-top frame seals must be ordered separately if required.)
There is no sewing involved in installing a two-part convertible top, but you will have to be comfortable with a staple gun, manipulating convertible-top fabric, and applying contact cement. Our convertible-top packages include stainless-steel staples and the very best grade of contact cement with brush.
