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, GM White and Tan

Fabrics:
The original dealer soft tops on Corvettes of this period was Haartz pinpoint vinyl. Later Corvettes featured canvas tops and Chrysler Sailcloth vinyl tops.<

Chrysler Sailcloth vinyl has the same physical properties and wear ratings as the original pinpoint. However its outer surface is textured to emulate canvas.

About the Fabrics:

Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl's design is original to most American cars from the fifties to the nineties. Pinpoint refers to the little dots or pips that you see if you look closely at the vinyl surface. European cars, such as the old Beetles and others also used pinpoint vinyl as the topping fabric.

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.

Tops are made with the installation straps.

Original Windows:
The original rear windows were plastic. The plastic windows we employ are always of the heaviest gauge plastic available.

Tack Strips:
Staples (or tacks) are used to attach the top at the header bow and rear top bow. These are driven into embedded tacking strips which are attached to the bows.

Top pads:
The top is supported along its sides with special webbing.

Installation:
This top installs with staples (must be stainless steel) and glue (either contact cement or slower setting neoprene cement.) If you are comfortable renting and using an air driven staple gun then you are a good candidate for do-it-yourself installation.

We have the 68-75 top install manual which should offer very good guidance for installation of this similar top, along with notes taken during the removal of the old top.

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.
