Thanks for those pictures, Danny.  I wanted the white vinyl represented here, and it's great to get a Vintage car for an example.

So far, the general trend is yes to vinyl.  But I appreciate the no ideas and other thoughts.
80.9% = yes; 10.3% = no; 8.8% = maybe.  That's still 4 to 1 on the yes side.

I do wonder if I'd started this under Originality, if that would have affected the vote.

What's your opinion?   Huh  Huh  Huh

Thank you, too, Dave.

I think we have gotten a pretty balanced view of the issues --except perhaps a little more "negative" view of either look or rust-causing.  If anyone wants to say anymore --good or bad-- please do!  Otherwise I'm going to let this one "fade" down the page, again.

Really appreciate the votes and input!

I am all for it if it has to be there to restore it to its orginal factory condition.  If I was to make a resto-mod I would probably leave it off.   

Here is mine:  I found her in Nov 06 in a barn, after a 25yr nap.

Tim,
Thanks for the pics.  We've really not got anything like yours in this thread.

BTW, I know what a Seadoo is.  But humor an old man, what does CBR9 mean?

My guess is Seadoo with a Honda CBR900 motorcycle engine in it!   Grin

Hey, Newbies...
Got an opinion?
Or better yet: a picture?

My vote is for the top. I can't imagine may car being the same without the black top. It does depend on the car though.

Love that black on black!  I also noticed your grill.  There's been an interesting discussion on grills here:

I like the looks of the vinyl roofs, especially the original ones.  If the roof is in good shape and the car is going to be garage kept and not much bad weather, I would think a new vinyl top would hold up nicely and look good for years to come.

The key is to have an air compressor and blow out any water from under the trim after a wash or getting the car wet.  Do that CORRECTLY without driving water up & under the top and rust will never be an issue.
