roadster top renew tips

Post by Chuck Stevens » Sat May 09, 2020 8:02 am

I'm starting to renew my 21 roadster top, hopefully it'll get warmer soon. I have the bows covered and installed on the car, I just thought I would tap into this great resource for any tips or what not to do. I know 90 degrees with bright sunshine will help and I'm it no hurry, thanks Chuck.

Get your top from Mike Francis at Classtique. He does very good work.

Don't wait till it's that hot! Warm yes, at 90 in bright sun light the material is going to stretch more then you want. Plus it's bloody hot standing over that black material. Do yourself a favor, nice warm day, work in the shade.
I know the voices aren't real but damn they have some good ideas! :shock:
