DIY vinyl top?

Post by bigbadbu » Thu Jun 19, 2014 3:50 pm

Wasnt there a guy here who did his own vinyl top? has anyone ever done one? I can order the pre-cut material through work for pretty cheap. Local shop wants 600 with me doing any metal work.

I've done them and will put back the Landau on my bu. Here's a 2nd gen F body I did. The ones with a seam or two are a bit harder because you need to keep the seams straight/centered/even etc.

I really want to take a wack at it the clips and hardware are the only parts that scare me because I have no clue where I can get them.
