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, Buckskin, Dark Blue, Bordeaux, Quartz and Slate Blue

This is a classic two part convertible top. The main top and the rear window section are integrated during installation. You can read all about how this is done at the link below to a summary of our two part top installation manual.

If you are having the work done in a "top shop" expect to be billed for approximately 8 hours of work.

Fabrics: These tops are available in either original Chrysler Sailcloth vinyl, or Haartz Stayfast canvas. The latter is the longer wearing and features an elegant canvas outer layer. The vinyl, less expensive, is easier to keep clean.

The window is zippered as in the original top.

Hold down cables: These are installed in the side pockets of the top and hold the top to the top frame at the sides. More on this is in the install link below. New cables are recommended with each top.

Tack strips: Tack strips are embedded in the front and rear top bows and receive the tacks or staples that fasten the top. Tack strips usually last through two tops. Replacement strips are available.

Pads: Pads install under the top, front to rear, along the sides. They are a special webbing that "builds out" the top. Pads usually last through two tops. They are also available here, at "accessories." Our pads are specifically tailored for Shadows.

Boots: The boot should be flexible enough to accept the top without stress. Modern boot vinyls allow this without a long break in period as required by boots which are made of topping fabrics. We offer two boots: the original factory gray boot and the more popular aftermarket replacement in any color.

Package Specials: To avoid confusion we have listed the most popular packages. The packages contain all that is usually required for a thorough top restoration job. If you want to compose a package with other fabrics, etc. please email us at the email link at the bottom of this page. Our packages include installation instructions from the original Dodge shop manual and feature step by step installation instructions for this particular top.

Do-It-Yourself Installation: Classic two part tops are frequently installed by our customers, even first time installers. You would use either a staple gun (with stainless steel staples) or else a tack hammer and copper tacks. Contact cement work is also done to mate top fabric with a couple of frame sections. There is no sewing required. We do our best to handle questions at techsupport@mtmfg.com .

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.
