Important Information

Original Factory Color(s): Black

Original Configuration:
One piece convertible top. Black bezel window welt, factory style retainers. This replacement top is based entirely on original dealer Nissan 350Z convertible top geometry and details.

Original Material(s):

The Nissan 350Z convertible top fabric was originally HV Denim also known as Twill Weave Grain Vinyl.
This convertible top fabric is a vinyl material composed of a
so-called "twill grain" PVC outer layer and a polyester/cotton blend inside lining fabric.

Haartz Stayfast Canvas:A great Nissan 350Z convertible top fabric is Haartz Stayfast Canvas. This convertible top fabric has a canvas outer layer and a preshrunk cotton inner layer.
The two top layers are bonded with and separated by a butyl rubber core. It is this core that makes this convertible top 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 other convertible top.
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.

Other Alternate Materials: German Sonnenland Canvas, Haartz Pinpoint vinyl.
Note that the installation quality of the Nissan 350Z convertible top is at least an important factor in the wear rating of your new 350Z top as the fabric chosen.

We can supply a Nissan 350Z convertible top replacment in your choice of convertible top fabric.

Other Convertible Top Fabrics:

German Sonnenland Canvas is the original German made canvas used in some Mercedes, Porsche, BMW and other convertibles. It's general construction is very similar to Haartz Stayfast canvas soft top fabric. It is hard to tell the surfaces apart among the three soft top canvased used. The manufacturing specifications make Sonnenland the longest lasting convertible top fabric.

Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl is the most popular convertible top fabric used in original and in replacement convertible top. This convertible top vinyl design is original to most American cars from the fifties to the nineties. European cars, such as the old Beetles and others also used pinpoint vinyl as the topping fabric.

Window: The original Nissan 350Z convertible had a glass window with defroster.

Estimated Professional Installation Time:If you take your Nissan 350Z to a "top shop" expect to be billed at about 7 hours.

Do It Yourself Installation:
Our Nissan 350Z convertible top install manual is a 22 page, well illustrated (8 1/2 x 11) booklet. The installation of a replacement 350Z convertible top does not involve any stapling or glue work. The new Nissan top is installed with rivets (pop rivets which are included in our Nissan 350Z do-it-yourself packages) and with reinstalled screws and bolts taken from the original Nissan convertible top and applied in the new 350Z soft top. Two sided tape (also included in our 350Z top packages) is used in a couple of areas to secure the new soft top to the frame.

We believe that the installation of a Nissan 350Z convertible top is well within the province of a patient handy person and is thoroughly covered by our Nissan 350Z convertible top installation instruction manual.

Hold down cables may be vital to replace in a 350Z top which has been raised and lowered a significant number of times. We carry an American made reproduction of the dealer convertible top hold down cables. Cables are installed (per our 350Z manual) into the side hems of the new 350Z convertible top and attach the top at the front corners and back along the convertible top folding frame. Nissan 350Z side hold down cables are available separately or are within our Nissan 350Z convertible top packages.

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.
