About Replacing the Rear Window Section
In a two part top it is possible to retain the main top and replace just the rear window section. The two sections are released at the base line, the molding over the rear window is removed and the two layers of staples pulled. The first layer releases the main top there, the second layer the window section. The upper edge of the new rear window section is stapled to the rear top bow then, over it, the edge of the main top. Both sections are rejoined at the base line. Full details are contained in our two part top manual.

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 a 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.

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

Original Factory Color(s): Black, White and Ford Blue

Fabrics:
The original topping fabric was pinpoint vinyl. We offer these tops; we also offer tops made of Haartz Stayfast canvas. You can read full information on topping fabrics at the "Help" link at the top of this page.

Installation:
This is a classic two part top: the main top and the rear window sections are integrated during the installation process.

Installation involves stapling (using stainless steel staples) and gluing. There is no sewing. If you are confident using an air driven staple gun then you are a good candidate for do-it-yourself installation. You can read a summary of our 'two part top' manual via the blue link at the bottom of this page.

Rear Window:
As original, the rear window section has a zippered window. The plastic is the highest grade 'Regalite' DOT approved plastic for windows.

Tack Strips:
Tacking strips are embedded in the header and rear top frame bows. They receive the staples. We offer replacement strips. (If your lower--below the back window--tacking belts need replacement please inquire.)

Hold down cables:
Cables are threaded through the side hems of the top and hold the top to the framework. They are not visible after installation. New cables are recommended with each new top.

Pads:
Pads are installed under the top. They 'build out' the top along the sides.

Boots:
A boot is optional; it receives and covers the top in the down position. We strongly recommend choosing a boot in a modern boot vinyl. This has some "give" and is much easier to use than a boot made in a topping fabric. Boots are usually chosen to complement the paint or interior colors.

Package Specials:
Our packages are designed to provide everything you will need for a full restoration job.

Do-it-yourselfers:   Read a summary of convertible top 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.
