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, Oxford White, Cadet Blue and Light Neutral

Which convertible top fabric should I buy?
Between 1983 and 1990, the Ford Mustang original convertible top fabric was Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl. Original colors were, most often, black, Ford white, and Ford blue. (The original pale Ford blue fabric is no longer available.) Some "high-end" restorers prefer Haartz Stayfast Canvas. Here's what you need to know about each before making a decision:
Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl is a two-ply composite with a PVC outer layer and a cotton inner lining. Pinpoint refers to the little dots on the vinyl surface. Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl is a popular convertible top fabric. In fact, this fabric is original to most American cars made before 1993. If you take care of a Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl Mustang top, it can easily last 10 years.
Haartz Stayfast Canvas: If you're looking to upgrade your vinyl Mustang top, consider a convertible top made of Haartz Stayfast Canvas. This fabric is the American substitute for the German canvases used in Mercedes, Porsche, BMW, as well as some Mustang and Lebaron models. 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 vinyl tops.

Can I Install a Mustang Convertible Top Myself?
Every Mustang convertible top, until 2005, was a classic "two part top." The main top and the rear convertible top window section (called the "curtain") are integrated during the convertible top installation.

We have the fourth edition of the tutorial two part convertible top installation manual. It should help you decide whether you are a candidate for installing a replacement Mustang convertible top yourself. We have found that owners comfortable with renting an air-driven staple gun (or using our Arrow ETFX stapler) are candidates for do-it-yourself convertible top installation. We offer the Mustang convertible top installation manuals, with Mustang convertible top details for each year Mustang. You might also wish to have our comprehensive two-part convertible top installation manual, now in its fourth edition. This covers, in detail, all the steps for do-it-yourself convertible top installation including convertible top removal procedures. You may purchase the manual to review it before purchasing a convertible top package. We would then pro-rate future purchase of the convertible top when it is ordered.

Why should I buy a convertible top package?
Our convertible top packages contain all the necessary essentials for installing a Mustang convertible top for one discounted price. Our packages include the Mustang top and required cables, top frame tack strips, top pads and other convertible top parts as listed for each Mustang convertible on its page.

Most importantly, our Mustang top packages come with the do-it-yourself, step-by-step top top installation manual. Do-it-yourself installation of a two-part convertible top is frequently done by our customers. The full two-part Mustang convertible top installation manual is available on this page. Note that there is no sewing involved in installing a two-part convertible top. There is stapling and there is manipulation of the top fabric which in places is applied with professional grade contact cement (included in our packages). Our convertible top packages include stainless-steel staples and the very best grade of contact cement with brush.

Can I purchase just one top section?
Yes. The main top (the section of the convertible top that covers from the windshield back to the rear window, is available separately. So is the rear window section of the convertible top (called the "curtain") Either section of the convertible top can be installed with the other section of the soft top retained.

Important advice for anyone ordering 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 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 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 (Ford Mustang) fit cars for years: 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989 and 1990.
