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

These tops are made for the 1946-48 town and country club convertibles.

The original topping was canvas. We offer a replacement in either Haartz stayfast canvas, or Haartz pinpoint vinyl. Available vinyl colors are white with a black inner lining or black with a black inner lining. Canvas colors are black or tan, both with tan inner linings.

We will be happy to special order other fabrics for you.

This is a classic two part top. This means that the rear window section is stapled to the bow above the back and the main top is stapled over it at the same bow. You should order the main top and the rear window section separately. This is because we supply either a plastic windowed rear section or a solid fabric rear section. Both are zippered with a horseshoe zipper.

Special pads for this top are available which include the rear quarter pads.

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 (Chrysler New Yorkers & Windsors) fit cars for years: 1946, 1947 and 1948.
