About E-Z ON

Based on its rapid expansion in the past decade, E-Z ON Auto Tops, Inc. has been recognized as the world's fastest-growing manufacturer of replacement tops for both domestic and import cars. Since its founding in 1989, E-Z ON Auto Tops has flourished through providing customers with the highest quality customer service as well as excellent fitting tops at very competitive prices. Dollar for dollar, E-Z ON's convertible tops have been proven to be the industry's best value.

In addition to ongoing expansion of its own primary product line, E-Z ON has fueled growth through acquiring the resources of other respected firms. One recent example is bringing aboard and expanding our import car line to include Alfa Romeo, Austin Healy, Fiat, Jensen Healy, MG Series, and Triumph Series tops, all developed by Amco, a 50-plus year manufacturer of convertible tops.

Now armed with precision patterns and state-of-the-art equipment, E-Z ON Auto Tops, Inc. enters the new millennium as the best source for virtually every application, domestic and import car.

About Robbins Auto Top Company: Since 1943, Robbins Auto Top Company has been committed to providing only the highest quality products and service to their customers. Their goal is simple: Customer Satisfaction. Through innovation, continuous improvement of manufacturing processes, and a highly skilled work force, they offer the highest quality products and level of service possible. Distinctive styling, fine custom workmanship and attention to detail are all benchmarks of Robbins Auto Top Company. When you want the best...Go Robbins.

Owner Installation:
We have a step by step manual describing how to remove the old top and install the new one. The manual is clearly illustrated with our own installation pictures and accompanying step by step instructions. We believe that a patient do-it-yourselfer should be able to perform his or her installation. There is contact cement work, some tacking or stapling and the installation of pop rivets or sheet metal screws. There is no sewing.

We also maintain a tech support email where questions are answered daily. ( This is techsupport@mtmfg.com )

Fabrics:
The original topping was a black British vinyl. Our Colonial vinyl is an American made version. We have posted a link to swatch closeups of colonial vinyl. We offer these colonial grain vinyl tops in white or black.

We are also offering this top in Haartz pinpoint vinyl, which is available in more colors. You can view the pinpoint vinyl fabrics via the links next to the product descriptions.

Windows:
Original dealer tops for 1977-80 were zippered. We can supply the top with a center window with or without a zipper (the 71-76 MGB roadster tops were made without zippered; the rear center window was fully sealed in.) Our tops are manufactured with three plastic windows, dimensioned exactly as original. We believe the unzippered center window tops are more durable but deprive an opportunity of rear ventilation with the top up (and the window lowered.)

Installation Manual:
We have a step by step illustrated manual describing how to remove the old top and install the new one. Included is detailed information that will allow any meticulous do-it-yourselfer to perform his or her installation. It is available only with a purchase of our top.

Tonneau Covers:
Replacement tonneau covers are offered too. Please see "Accessories" listing. Tonneau covers are made with boot vinyl. Please look at the fabric samples and specify color in checkout message box. Snaps are supplied for your installation.

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.
