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, Tan and Light Neutral

Original Patterns:
The patterns for this top are original patterns obtained many years ago. These are not 'copies of copies.'

Sections are cut using computer directed machinery and bonded to create the new top which is made to order.

Fabrics:
The original topping was canvas. Modern Haartz Stayfast canvas tops are offered, as well as the less expensive vinyl top.

Curtains:
'Curtain' is the trade name for the window with its attached trim fabric. Please note the years of side curtains as small changes were made in their configuration.

There are two pair of side curtains in a set. There is one, zippered, rear curtain.

The rear curtain installs, as originally, under the main top, attached above and below with staples. The molding above the rear window, which hides the upper staples, is visible in the picture. We supply the rear tack strip which accepts the staples.

Pads:
The pads are foam, encased in protective vinyl. They install under the top to build it out.

Boots:
We offer top boots in modern leather grained boot vinyl. This is much preferred compared with topping fabrics as the boot vinyl has a slight elasticity and gives much easier use to the storage boot.

The boot installs as original, using 35 snaps. Snaps are included along with a snap install tool kit.

Seat Covers:
We also have pleated, and unpleated, seat covers made from original seat patterns.

Seat cover sets include the '70/30' front section, the rear bench seat covers and the rear arm rest covers. These are not slip covers, but are original replacement covers that install over your seat frame and padding.

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.


Parts in this category (Willys Jeepster) fit cars for years: 1948, 1949, 1950, 1951 and 1952.
