Important Information

Original Factory Color(s): Black and Blue

Headliner:
The headliner is the interior roof covering. The old headliner, if in good condition, may be re-installed under a new top. Headliners are listed under "Accessories." We have the original gray over taupe cloth fabric replacement.

Care in Raising and Lowering Top:
We pass on advice from Saab dealer service bulletins: raise and lower your top carefully. Abrasion and pinching have caused premature damage to these Saab tops due to the frame design.

Hold Down Cables:
During installation a cable is threaded into in interior (cable pocket) hem on each side of the top. The cables attach the front and rear corners of the top to the framework. New cables are listed under "Accessories" and are included in our complete packages.

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.
