Convertible Top and Convertible Top Parts

About These Porsche Convertible Tops:

Configuration:  The top is made, as original, with hand rolled bindings and a plastic rear window. These are made in two sections (the main top and the rear window scection) which are joined on installation. Please note that the 83-85 and the 86-94 take different tops, as listed. The 83-85 cars have the larger (51 1/2")window and are for cars with no drip rails above the door glass. The 86-94 tops have the smaller (41 1/2") window and are for cars with drip rails.

Fabrics: The original topping was German Sonnenland Canvas. This is offered as well as Twillfast Canvas and Haartz Stayfast Canvas.

Windows: The "small" window is 41 1/2' wide. The large window is 51 1/2" wide.

About Toppings: The original Sonnenland has (roughly) 20% greater durabilty than Stayfast Canvas. Sonnendeck (Twillfast) is rated close to 90% of Sonnenland. The three are difficult to tell apart in surface appearance.

Warranties: Robbins Auto Tops offers a six year warranty with 18 month labor allowance.Kee Auto Tops carries a six year factory warranty without labor allowance.

Installers: The best way to locate an installer is to enter "Automobile upholstery shops near me" in your browser search bar. Google provides a geographic display of nearby shops (that should be consulted with.) Meticulous handy restorers may use our two part top installation manual along with notes taken during the removal of the old top to do their own installation.

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

Fabrics: These Porsche tops were originally made in German Sonnenland canvas. We recommend the original canvas be used in replacement tops for maximum durability. However there is savings available with the Haartz Stayfast and the Sonnendeck canvas substitutes. There is more information on all these fabrics via the "Help" link at the top of this page.

Installation Manual: Many 911 owners are installing their own tops. We offer the installation manual for this top with purchase of our replacement top.

Two Piece Tops: The original top design was in two sections, the main top and the rear window section. There are modified one piece versions of this top, with the two sections pre-joined. However this confers no advantage in wear or use and are not offered here.

We offer the rear section only, for use under the old main top, for customers whose window section only needs replacing. And we offer the front, main top, section separately as well.

Boots: The boot cover is offered in leather or in a choice of canvas topping fabric.

Headliners: The fabric roof section inside the car is the headliner and is offered under "Accessories."

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.
