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 and GM White

Original Patterns:
We make these tops using computer directed cutting of patterns obtained from original Cadillac tops. These are not copies of copies. Consistency is assured.

Fabrics:
The original Cadillac convertible top fabric was pinpoint vinyl. We also offer a Haartz Stayfast Canvas top.

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.

 

Do-It-Yourself Installation:
This is a classic two part top. The rear window section, called the "curtain" is attached with staples to the rear top bow (and along the base.) The main top is stapled, at its rear, over the curtain on the rear top bow (and forward of that.) Contact cement work and alignment is also required. There is no sewing. You should read the material in the two part top link below to make sure you want to do your own installation. Many of our customers are successful first time installers. We do offer a manual specifically for these tops which is listed as an "accessory:" it is available only with purchase of a top.

Hold Down Cables:
Cables hold the top to the frame along the sides. Cables are inserted into the top's cable pockets and are not visible after installation. They are described in the link to the two part top manual below. New cables are recommended with each top.

Tack Strips:
Tack strips embedded in the front and rear frame bows receive staples. There is a wrap-around set of tack strips bolted to the inner base line of the body that takes the lower staples. The base line tack strips, if necessary, can be rebuilt. Please inquire on this at techsupport@mtmfg.com. We do offer replacement tack strips for the header (front) and the rear top bow.

Zipper or No Zipper:
Originally these identical tops were made both with and without zippered rear windows. The 65-66 were made with the zipper and the zipper was then eliminated. The zipper is not a necessity: it enables you to ride with the top up and the rear window down. Specify zipper or no zipper in the checkout message box.

Boots:
Replacement boots are available. These are optional: a boot receives the lowered top and frame. Generally boot fabric is chosen to match or complement the interior color. Our boots are made of modern boot vinyl, providing a slight elasticity that does not require a long tedious break-in period for the new boot.

Hydraulics:

We now stock hydraulic cylinders, motor-pumps, and hoses for your convertible tops. All are made to OEM specifications. Each can be ordered separately; however, when ordering hydraulic cylinders we recommend replacing both. The chances are that both hydraulic cylinders were manufactured at the same time: if one is on its way out the other may follow. If the top is raised and one hydraulic cylinder is working harder than the other the result over time can lead to a slightly bent convertible top frame. The replacement of both hydraulic cylinders will ensure that the top raises and lowers symmetrically.

Systems for this car take Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) and have a 1 year warranty when used with this fluid. Brake fluid should not be used as it voids the warranty. We also offer an installation manual when ordered.

The 12 volt motor-pumps include a mounting bracket with rubber grommets to reduce vibration.

We also offer a rebuilding service for motor-pumps. Not all are repairable, but it is less expensive to have one rebuilt than to buy a new one. The motor-pump would need to be sent to us for evaluation. Hoses come with all new fittings and are made specifically to fit your car.

 

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.


Parts in this category (Cadillac Coupe De Ville & Eldorado) fit cars for years: 1965, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1969 and 1970.
