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, White and Ford Blue

Original Patterns: We are pleased to offer this convertible top made to original patterns. Our factory has been collecting original dealer tops since the thirties.

Fabrics: The original top fabric was a special three layer pinpoint grained vinyl. This is replicated by the modern Eurotopping pinpoint vinyl. The central layer (core) is a butyl rubber, just as in Haartz Stayfast canvas. This adds significant durability to the fabric over all two layer vinyls.

Curtains: The curtain is the plastic rear window section of the top. This particular window was designed in a "wrap around" style which ours duplicates. The plastic window is fitted with a zipper. Our curtains are made with modern Dept. of Transportation approved heavy guage plastic windows.

Haartz pinpoint vinyl is significantly less expensive and for some the fabric of choice.

Choose Color: Please click on one of the blue links, above, to see fabric swatches. Jot down your color choice. You will have an ample checkout message box within which you can specify your color and also to leave any requests you wish to make.

Boots: We can offer a top boot for this convertible. We strongly recommed one of the modern boot vinyls. This is a leather grained vinyl with a slight elasticity making it perfect for boot usage. Boots are listed, with accessories, below.

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.

Do-it-yourselfers:   Read a summary of convertible top installation.
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.
