How can I tell if my Fiat convertible is an early-1979? Fiat convertibles went almost unchanged for 19 years! Then in 1979, the Fiat convertible soft tops were slightly restyled. If you're ordering a 1979 Fiat convertible, be sure to specify if your Fiat convertible is from early 1979 or late 1979. Not sure? Here's how to tell:

The Early-1979 Fiat Convertible Top:
If you have an early-1979 Fiat convertible, the top's front corners will be square as in the sketch shown on the left. Click here to shop for early-1979 Fiat soft tops and convertible top parts.


The Late-1979 Fiat Convertible Top:
If you have a late-1979 Fiat convertible, then your Fiat soft top will have a rounded front as shown in the illustration on the left. Click here to shop for late-1979 Fiat convertible tops and convertible top parts.

How do I choose a Fiat Convertible Top Fabric? Fiat convertible tops come in two fabrics: Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl and Haartz Stayfast Canvas. Here's what you need to know about each one before you make your purchase.
Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl: A popular Fiat convertible top fabric, Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl is a two-ply composite with a PVC outer layer and a cotton inner lining. Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl is original to many Fiat convertibles. Pinpoint refers to the little dots on the vinyl surface. If you take care of a Haartz pinpoint vinyl convertible top, it can easily last 10 years.
Haartz Stayfast Canvas: If you're looking to upgrade your vinyl top, consider a Fiat convertible top made of Haartz Stayfast Canvas. This fabric is the American substitute for the elegant German canvases used in Mercedes, Porsche, and BMW. Haartz Stayfast Canvas is a three-ply composite material made of an acrylic square weave outer fabric, a butyl rubber core, and a cotton lining. The butyl rubber core promises to make Haartz Stayfast Canvas last a very long time. This canvas is a little richer looking than the vinyl. It's also a little harder to clean. Stayfast Canvas has both better static and dynamic wear ratings than any vinyl top.

Should I replace my Fiat's Hold Down Cables? Yes! Hold down cables are threaded through the top's hem on both sides. The cable attaches the top to the framework at the front corner and at the upper rear corner. You will need new cables with each new top as you'll have to cut the old ones to remove the original top. Our Best Buy Fiat package includes a top with cables, installation manual, pry tool, and contact cement -- basically everything you need to install your top yourself and save hundreds of dollars on installation costs.

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.
