Important Information

Original Factory Color(s): Black

Original top fabric:
The original Toyota Paseo convertible top fabric was Chrysler Sailcloth vinyl. Original tops were almost always black.

Original Fabric and Color:Chrysler Sailcloth Vinyl, Black

Chrysler Sailcloth is featured on many late LeBarons, Sebrings, certain Mustangs and other cars. It is structurally (wear quality) equivalent to the Haartz Pinpoint but has a different surface grain. The grain was designed to imitate the look of canvas. As you can see from the scan of this fabric, it is an exceptionally rich looking material. It is sometimes chosen for replacing convertible tops that originally featured pinpoint vinyl.

Alternate Fabric:Haartz Stayfast Canvas

Haartz Stayfast Canvas has a canvas outer layer and a preshrunk cotton inner layer. The two are bonded with and separated by a butyl rubber core. It is this core that makes the fabric last a very long time, with both better static and dynamic wear ratings than vinyl toppings. Haartz Stayfast is the American substitute for the German canvases used in Mercedes, Porsche, BMW, some models of Mustang and Lebaron and others. Canvas is widely regarded as "richer looking" than vinyl. It is a little harder to clean. The inside of the top is pre-shrunk cotton. The inner lining is usually black. If you do not see a canvas top listed for your car, please inquire and we will provide a quotation for it.

Two part tops:
This top installs, as originally designed, in two parts: the rear window section attaches to the rear top bow, and the main top, which is the rest of the convertible top (from the windshield to the rear top bow) is attached over the rear window section.

For those whose rear window is intact as well as still firmly attached to its trim fabric, we offer the main top as a separate unit. Similarly, you may order just the rear window section.

The rear window may be either plastic or glass. Our glass rear windows have defroster included.

Hold down cables:
We offer the top hold down cables. These cables are threaded into the side hems of the top and hold the top to the frame along the sides, at front and rear. New cables are recommended with each top unless the top has not often been raised and lowered.

Do-It-Yourself Installation:
We have an instruction manual that shows how to install such a classical two part top. The manual is intended for use with careful notes made during removal of the old top. You can read a summary of the full manual via the link on this page. The summary should provide sufficient orientation to allow a decision about self installation. This involves stapling (or tacking) and the orientation of fabric and frame components to be mated with contact cement. There is no sewing.

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.
