Important Information

Original Factory Color(s): Black, Blue, Brown and Tan

Specialized Manufacturer:
These tops are manufactured by a specialist in German tops and interiors.

Fabrics:
The original fabric is German Sonnenland canvas. Other canvas toppings are very hard to distinguish from the Sonnenland, but the wear rating of the modern Sonnenland is the highest of all toppings.

Rear Window:
The rear window is plastic as original and will be the highest grade Regalite window plastic. Please specify whether you prefer tan or gray window lining. This should be the color of you existing or new headliner.

Wood Bows:
The installation of the top requires stapling to the wooden tacking forms that are bolted to the folding top frame. Proper restoration must begin with a careful examination of the wood top bows presently on the car. Accurately made replacement wood bows are listed at "accessories."

Boots:
We can have custom leather boot covers made. Or you can choose stretchable leather grained vinyl for a replacement boot.

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.
