Vinyl top seam measurement
« on: December 05, 2012, 07:35:58 PM »
I am ready to order a new Parchment vinyl top for my 69 and want to make sure of the measurement between the seams. I have seen this varies between the suppliers.
Could anyone with an original 1969 vinyl top give me their measurement seam to seam, and also is the measurement the same below the rear window. I would have thought this would have come up before but I did not have any luck in the search. Thanks for your help. George

George,

Exactly the same as mine (outside of seams)... :)    they must have been pretty consistent..

 I know the tops are different but are the seams the same distance for a 68' vinyl top?

Mickey, Thanks again for the measurements. I tried to send you a PM but I don't think it worked. I have two white vinyl samples that are different shades and wondered if I could mail them to you for comparing to your top. My email is not hidden so you should be able to reply back. George
