Anyone ever install their own Convertible Top?

Recommended Posts

I'll watch it! 

 

I did see that on my youtube searches but since it said how to make a custom top I didn't watch it yet.  

 

Thanks!

Really glad you pointed that video out or else I'd never have watched it.

 

Most of the installation part was the same as with a purchased top like mine.  And it's almost identical to my 67 top.  Its about the best video I've seen yet and will help me a lot on my install.

 

He did leave out a few basic things that many people probably already know.  Like how and when to replace tack strips and where they go.  On my car I had to glue and use sheet metal screws to hold some of the strips on.  

 

But great video!

 

Thanks!

I did my black top on my 51 Super last year. Worked out well, it was easy to stretch as it is in Az just put in out in the sun for awhile. One word of caution protect the paint surfaces really well. I did the top after paint was done and stapler slid off top and dinged the paint even though I had it covered.

would do it again.
