1911 TOP

Post by Art Ebeling » Tue Jun 30, 2020 7:51 pm

My 1911 Touring came with a new JV Auto Interiors top kit. The kit has enough webbing to have two pieces from the front bow to the rear bow. I have seen pictures of 1911's with the webbing in an X pattern between each bow with one piece of webbing going straight thru the X in the center. Which is correct and with the X pattern is the piece in the middle the same width as the X webbing? Thanks, Art

These are image of Fred Lau (RIP) 1911. I pattered my top off these images.
The strap is top material folded backwards, so the shiny side is on the inside.

Hope these help.

Thanks Kieth, are you saying the webbing has the shiny side down or up? Can you also tell me the width? Art
