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 and GM White

The original convertible top was a black cotton cloth or a white vinyl. The convertible top has a single plastic rear window.

Haartz stayfast canvas comes closest to the original cloth fabric. Pinpoint vinyl is available in both black and white and makes a more economical replacement.

Early 1959 owners:Tthe change to a three window top was made by Nash in 1959. Some early 1959 models may have a single window. Please make certain, if you order one of the tops on this page, that you have a single window convertible. If you have an early 1959 and are not sure whether your original top had a single or three windows then please check your serial number. The single window tops were made for metropolitans up through SN: E71276.

Pads for this top are made with black napped cloth wrapping. They are listed with 'accessories' below.

We have the patterns for replacement top boots. The boot attaches like the original. It also requires 4 tenax fasteners.

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.
