Pontiac Convertible Tops and Convertible Top Parts
We carry Pontiac convertible top replacements in original Pontiac top fabrics. Our tops are made using computer directed cutting based on original Pontiac convertible tops and are not "copies of copies." For most Pontiac convertibles, these soft tops are classic two part convertible tops, meaning they are installed in two sections, a main top and a rear window.
For more information on your particular convertible top, you may select your Pontiac convertible from one of the links at the right. If you are contemplating your own installation, please read the guide to two part convertible top installation either on this page or at your Pontiac convertible top page.
In addition to Pontiac replacement soft tops we carry the pads, tack strips, convertible top hold down cables, convertible top boots etc. all of which will be listed for your Pontiac at the appropriate link on the right.
Pontiac Convertible Tops: Can I Install Myself?
More than half of our customers install Pontiac tops themselves. 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 most Pontiacs, with a two part convertible top. (The Firebird, Trans-Am, and Firefly require a one part top.) Owners 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.
If you can use an air compressor driven staple gun, and are patient and methodical, you are very likely to be able to install any of these convertible tops. The convertible top packages include everything needed in most cases. (Convertible top frame seals must be ordered separately if required.)
Note that there is no sewing involved in installing a two part convertible top. There is stapling and there is manipulation of the top fabric which in places is applied with contact cement. Our convertible top packages include stainless steel staples and the very best grade of contact cement with brush. Please click the link to your convertible top page for more information.
Convertible Top Parts:
In addition to the convertible top, we carry many top boots, components for the hydraulic operation of the top (cylinders, motors, fluid, etc.) and we offer a rebuild service for all Pontiac convertible top motors.
Also offered are the convertible top hold down cables, top frame tacking strips, well liners and other convertible parts. The Pontiac top restoration packages that we list include the parts usually needed in the replacement of your soft top.
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.
