Can I Install My Geo Metro Convertible Top?
The Chevrolet Geo Metro top has a modular design, which makes it easier to install than most convertible tops. Our Geo Metro convertible top installation manual is an illustrated step-by-step set of instructions. There is neither stapling nor sewing involved. Installation of the Geo Metro convertible top requires removing existing hardware and then reinserting during the installation of the new Geo Metro top. There is also contact cement work in which the convertible top fabric is aligned to the top frame and the top bonded to that portion of the top frame.
How do I choose my Geo Metro top?
The Geo Metro convertible top fabric was a Japanese vinyl, very similar to our Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl. The Japanese vinyl is no longer available, but Haartz Pinpoint equals it in terms of quality and appearance. Our Geo Metro tops also fit the Suzuki Swifts, Cultus and Fireflies. We offer the Geo Metro convertible top in Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl and Stayfast Canvas. Here's what you need to know about each, before making a purchase:
Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl:
Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl convertible top fabric is a two-ply composite with a PVC outer layer and a cotton inner lining. Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl is a popular and classic convertible top fabric. The original Geo Metro convertible top was made of a now-extinct Japanese Vinyl that matches Haartz Pinpoint in terms of durability and appearance. Haartz pinpoint convertble top vinyl is original to most American cars made before 1993. Pinpoint refers to the little dots on the vinyl surface of the top. If you take care of a Haartz pinpoint vinyl convertible top, it can easily last 10 years.
Luxurious Haartz Stayfast Canvas: If you're looking to upgrade your vinyl top, consider a convertible top made of Haartz Stayfast Canvas. This fabric is the American substitute for the German canvases used in Mercedes, Porsche, BMW, etc. Haartz Stayfast Canvas is a three-ply composite material made of top canvas outer fabric, a butyl rubber core, and a cotton inner lining. The butyl rubber core adds to canvas top wear rating. A small percentage of our customers request a canvas top for the Geo Metro. Due to the car's small body size and thus small top, canvas's durability advantage is less than it is on larger convertible tops.
Zippered Window or Not?
Though the original Geo Metro convertible top window came with a zippered window, today most Geo Metro tops come with a welded-in rear we recommend the Geo Metro top with a non-zippered, sealed-in window, because it is less expensive, more durable, and easier to install. However, if you would like a top with a zippered window, we offer it too.
Do I Need New Hold Down Cables?
An important part of the Geo Metro convertible top installation is attaching the top to the frame via the pair of side hold down cables. These cables, not visible after installation, were designed with an elastic spring to vary the tension in the top as it is raised and lowered. These cables almost surely require replacement with each new convertible top.
