Important Information

Original Factory Color(s): Black

Fabrics:
The original dealer tops were usually black stayfast canvas (with brown also used but less often.) The top can be made in either original color.

Installation:
This top was designed in the classical fashion as two separate units. The Rear window section installs first and the main top is then installed over it. This design and the procedures for installing the top are covered in our illustrated Nissan 240SX manual.

If you are confident using an air driven staple gun and with using contact cement then you are a candidate for do-it-yourself installation. There is no sewing involved in the installation.

Our package specials include everything needed, in almost all cases, for a complete top restoration job.

Nissan Top Installation Manual:
We have a step by step, illustrated manual for installing the Nissan 240SX top, headliner, and pads. It is included with each of our top package specials. It is intended for the do-it-yourself installer.

Both Parts Available Separately:
To order a complete top without the cables and other accessories you should order both the Main Top and the Rear Window section. Or you may require only one of the sections, in which case you can order either the main top or the rear window section only.

The main top includes the original heat-sealed plastic retainer. Ther rear window section includes the upper retainer and the metal stiffener.

Headliner:
The headliner is the interior roof cover. It is a separate part. Your existing headliner can be removed and re-installed if it is in good condition.

Hold Down Cables:
Cables are used at the sides of the top to hold it to the framework. The cables are not visible after installation is completed. We recommend new cables with each top.

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.

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.
