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 any 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 ot can be measured with the old top on the car (as illustrated.)

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

Rear Window:
In 1966-68 the Lincoln convertibles had permanent glass rear windows. The convertible top is the fabric section, attached to the folding top frame and is integrated with the existing rear window.

There is material required to cover the bottom of the glass and this extra fabric is included.

Fabrics:
The original material is pinpoint vinyl. The pale blue color that appeared on some of these models is not available any longer.

Top Pads:
A pair of pads is installed under the top, along the sides, to "build out" the top. Pads are available and listed under "accessories."

Cables:
Cables installed in the top's side cable pockets attach the top to the frame along the sides. Cables are hidden from view after installation. New cables are listed under "accessories."

Tack Strips:
Tack strips are installed into the front and the rear top bows and accept the staples that attach the top to the car along these bows. New tack strips are listed with "accessories."

Installation:
Installation is similar to the classic two part top installation whose procedures are outlined in the blue link below. In these tops the rear glass window is a separate entity however. Otherwise the procedures are similar. To install a new top an air driven staple gun and contact cement are used. There is no sewing. Stainless steel staples and glue are listed with "accessories."

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 hydraulic 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 hydraulic cylinders 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.
