Original Fabric:
British Everflex Vinyl.

Alternate Fabrics:Colonial Grain vinyl and Haartz Stayfast Canvas.

About the fabrics: British Everflex Vinyl: We are now pleased to offer the Original British Everflex Vinyl, this is the original material used on British convertibles including Jaguar, Rolls Royce, MGB and many others. Imported from England, British Everflex vinyl is a supple vinyl with a rich appearance and is more durable than other vinyls. A good, less expensive alternative is Colonial grain vinyl, it has the same kind of texture.

British Bison Vinyl is the most popular British roadster convertible top material. It is American made Haartz leather grain vinyl and is an imitation of the British Everflex vinyl top fabric. The British Bison Vinyl convertible top fabric is often referred to as 'crush grain'.

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.

Wood Bows:
Installation of these tops requires stapling along the rear belt line of the car. The stapling is done into wooden bows, also called tacking strips (three pieces) which are screwed or rivetted to the metal work at the base line. We urge you to replace your wood bows with each top. This will minimize the risk of premature loss of the top due to strength issues when tops are stapled to previously used tacking strips or to inferior reproductions. Our tacking strips are wood layers, laminated with marine glue just like the original.

Total Install Package:
We offer the top together with the wood tack strip set and also new hold down cables. This should be all that is required for a full restoration.

Hold Down Cables:
New side hold down cables are available. Cables are threaded through the side cable pockets and are hidden from view after installation. Cables hold the top to the top's folding framework.

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.
