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 and GM White

PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE CONVERTIBLE TOPS WILL NOT FIT THE REBEL SST WHICH HAS A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT CONFIGURATION.

Fabrics: These 1967-69 Rambler convertibles featured pinpoint vinyl original convertible tops. We offer replacement tops, made to original patterns, in modern Haartz pinpoint vinyl. We also offer these Rambler convertible tops in Haartz Stayfas canvas. You can read all about fabrics via the "Help" section at the top of this page.

Classic Two Part Tops: This convertible top was designed to install as all classic convertible tops in two sections: the main top and the rear window sections integrate during the installation process.

Do-It-Yourself: You may read a summary of our popular installation manual via the link below. Installatin involves stapling (or tacking) and contact cement work. There is no sewing. Many first time installers of classic two part tops do an excellent job.

Tack Strips: Staples or tacks that hold the fabric to the frame are driven into tack strips embedded in the frame steel bows. We can supple replacement tacking strips.

Pads: Pads are installed under the top to "build out" the convertible top. We can supply a set of replacement pads.

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.
