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, Tan and Light Neutral

Original Patterns: We are pleased to offer replacement convertible tops made from original patterns. Our factory has collected original tops since the thirties.

Fabrics: The original convertible top fabric on these Dodge convertibles was pinpoint vinyl. You can view scans of the Haartz pinpoint vinyls via the swatch scan in the blue link above.

Selecting Fabric and Color: Please look at the swatch scans and jot down your color choice. You will specify the color in the checkout message box. If you wish a canvas top made, please contact us for a quotation. Canvas tops are elegant and extremely durable. Their cost is nearly twice that of vinyl.

Classic Two Part Tops: You can read how these tops install below. There you will see a link to a summary of our two part top installation booklet. There is sufficient information there to enable a decision on do-it-yourself installation. The full, detailed manual is included with our top packages or you may purchase it separately (see "accessories" below.) Installation requires no sewing; only stapling (or tacking) and contact cement work.

Tack Strips: Tacking strips are embedded in the header bow and the rear top bow. They receive the installation staples or tacks. Tack strips should last through at least two tops.

Pads: The padding can last through a second top. If you are doing a restoration job yourself we recommend the pad purchase. If you are going to a top shop for a labor estimate you can supply just the top and cables as the shop will have ready access to all standard pads.

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.
