Rear window section has flaps to wrap around upper rear bow straps used on early applications. Cut flaps off if not needed. Top and window sections are made with Hand-Rolled Binding. 5½ inch valance beneath windows. No piping around windows. Original style elastic. PolyOne/O'Sullivan 50 or 40 gauge plasitc windows . Reusable metal stiffener bars for rear window not supplied.

Sonnenland Canvas: Because this fabric is the best wearing of all canvas toppings we do not recommend departing from this convertible top fabric. Sonnendeck and Haartz Stayfast canvas are very difficult to visually distinguish from the Sonnenland German canvas but the manufacturing process makes the Sonnenland cloth last the longest.

These tops consist of two sections: the front and the rear three window section. They are sold separately, or as a complete package (consisting of both sections.)

Sonnendeck Canvas (also called 'Twillfast') is an American made canvas, true double texture topping like the Haartz Stayfast. Many purists who own Mercedes and other German cars want to see the particular German weave (that is called "dobby weave") when they look up inside the car. Haartz Stayfast canvas has a plain (unwoven) inner lining. So for Porsche, Mercedes and BMW owners who will spend a little more in order to see that "dobby" weave we offer a fabric called Sonnendeck (in addition to the original German Sonnenland or Happich canvas. The wear rating of Sonnendeck is also greater than for Haartz, by perhaps 10%. This is due to the slightly heavier inner lining and subtle bonding specification differences.

Haartz Stayfast Canvas has a canvas outer layer and a preshrunk cotton inner layer. The two are bonded with and separated by a butyl rubber core. It is this core that makes the fabric last a very long time, with both better static and dynamic wear ratings than vinyl toppings. Haartz Stayfast is the American substitute for the German canvases used in Mercedes, Porsche, BMW, some models of Mustang and Lebaron and others. Canvas is widely regarded as "richer looking" than vinyl. It is a little harder to clean. The inside of the top is pre-shrunk cotton. The inner lining is usually black. If you do not see a canvas top listed for your car, please inquire and we will provide a quotation for it.

Installation: Expect to be billed according to the industry shop time estimate which is twelve hours. This top installs with numerous screws, plates etc. transferred from the old top; a small amount of hand stapling (standard office stapler) of fabric layers and the matching and gluing of fabric listings and flaps. It is time consuming but very doable for the handy, patient person. We offer an 8 1/2 x 11, 28 page proufusely illustrated step-by-step guide.

Dealer Service Bulletins: Mercedes has issued service bulletins warning about possible damage to the top. It is suggested that this top be raised and lowered carefully and that any new top be aligned strictly in accordance with original reference locations.

Headliner: The inside roof covering, the headliner, is listed as an "accessory" below. It is sold separate from the top.

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.
