Reinstalling Vinyl Top
« on: June 16, 2014, 07:54:34 AM »
So I've decided to put the vinyl top back on my car and I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction. Maybe I'm over thinking this but I feel like this isnt a project I want to take on myself because A) Ive never done it before and B) The original mounting pins were all removed when the car was painted years ago. So that said, I'm hoping someone here might know of someone in the Southern California area that they could reccomend. And while I'm at it anyone have any original trim pieces that they might be willing to part with? Thanks....

No on the white top..Its a 72 B car like yours and as near as I can figure it lost the top and got white stripes about 15 years ago. So along with the top I'm going to repaint the stripes black as well.

Give me your email and I can suggest someone for you, he did my J2 68' Z28. It had lost it's top many many years ago and it's going back on as we speak.
