New Edition!!!
Convertible Top Guys' "How To Remove and Install Classic Two-Part Tops."

This 40-page, extensively illustrated how-to manual walks you through removing and installing any two-part convertible top. The manual applies to almost all American convertibles made before the year 2004, and some foreign cars, too, like Celicas and Saabs. This is a bound 8 1/2 x 11 book; designed as both a tutorial for first-time installers and as a step-by-step manual for these convertible tops. Generally, all that is needed and not contained is the "bow height" which is the setting of the rear top frame bow for your convertible. This is available from any top distributor ot can be measured with the old top on the car (as illustrated.)

What skills are required ? (1) The ability to drive staples into bow frame tacking strips (2) The ability to orient fabric sections to the frame and apply with contact cement. (3) A systematic and careful personality ! (There is never any sewing required.)

Note: Very early cars (forties) had wood bows and installers will have to adjust processes for stapling to these bows instead of tacking strips in steel bows as described in manual.

Important Information

The Chrysler Maserati convertible is different than the Maserati bi-turbo convertible which was discontinued in mid 1989. The tops on this page are the "TC" tops. If you have the earlier bi-turbo, those tops are listed separately.

The original Maseratic TC convertible top fabrics were black stayfast canvas and also buckskin sailcloth vinyl.

The canvas topping has a canvas outer layer and a pre-shrunk cotton inner layer. The two are bonded with a butyl rubber compound which becomes the central core of the fabric. This process makes for a very durable and long lasting top.

Sailcloth vinyl has its outer (vinyl) layer designed to emulate canvas. It is a rich looking fabric which does not have quite as good a wear rating as the stayfast canvas.

These tops were designed in two parts, the main top and the "curtain." the curtain is the trade name for the rear window section. The main top and the curtain are joined during the installation process.

You may order either the top or the curtain separately. This is in the event that you want to do one of the following: (a)Keep the old curtain and install the main top over it, or (b)keep the old main top and install a new curtain. A complete restoration will require the purchase of both the main top and also the curtain.

the curtain is available with a plastic or with a glass window.

The top is sold with the front bow portion assembled and with side attaching brackets.

the headliner is offered as an accessory, see below.

Those considering self-installation might wish to read the summary of our two part top installation manual (see link below) or to order the 22 page manual (see accessories below.)

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.
