Important Information

Original Factory Color(s): Black

Original Fabric:
The original topping was a black trilaminate twill weave vinyl. This is a vinyl that was designed to imitate canvas.

Alternate Fabric: Stayfast canvas, though not original has a thicker butyl rubber core than trilaminate twill and a more elegant (genuine canvas) outer surface and appearance.

It is a superior topping.

Colors:
Original (dealer) tops were black. You may select one of the Haartz Stayfast colors other than black if you prefer. However alternative colors will incur a shipment delay of approximately two weeks and the cost is $50 higher.

Rain Rail:
The original rain rail and the plastic retainers should be transferrable from the old top. Presently there is no one manufacturing these in the aftermarket.

Do-It-Yourself Installation:
You may take your new top to an auto upholstery shop for an installation quote for "labor only." Be absolutely certain of the integrity of the shop so that you do not incur an illicit switch tactic (informed unfairly that they need to substitute another top.)

Installation of this top is well within the realm of the handy person. There is no sewing or stapling involved. The project is analagous to assembling a grill (a famous analogy!) There are many plastic fasteners, bolts and also a few rivets. Spot gluing with contact cement at the header bow is optional. We offer a step by step illustrated manual that is packaged with our tops, if requested in the check box at 'accessories.'

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.
