Here goes my TRY.
I pretty sure the screws are not suppose to show. Tight as a drum, and still looks 1/2 inch short. Anyone have a picture?
Most of the old top off...............
And a whole lot of dirt.............
I had hoped to get more done today. Life got in the way !
Replacing a corvair top, in 8 hours must be with a 2 year old corvair?
I've been running into some clean-up before getting much work done.
Still so far, I'M Tired Of Pulling Staples!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Getting there, more updates soon.
Finished some more paint, and glued in spacers.
Back window came out fair, only 2 attempts.
And just started with top. this may take awhile............
Hopfully get some more done next weekend.
A couple of small wrinkles in the right sail, came out well with steam.
I do believe the instructions could have been written better.
But I think it came out OK.
It really was NOT a lot of fun, but here are the reasons that I tried it.
After check with the upholsterer, I was quoted a price for a new top, pads and well. That was it, those parts, and labor.
Quick look at Clark's, and I added all the seals, cables, boot, and boot bag. After buying a stapler, I still saved $700. That made-up my mind.
Finished it, then squared the doors up, and added the steering wheel that I took off the Buggy.
All-in-all a pretty good day.
Anyone know of a REPAIR? not really that noticeable, just really pissed me off.
The Second, was the front of the top,. How and where to attach and finish.
Took me a full Day to make sense of it. No picture right now, I'll post one later.
Thanks again for the advice.
This is how the front edge came out.
Still not sure if its correct, but no staples, and don't look like it will leak.
Out for a short ride.................
I think I like her better with the top down. ( the car too.)
Man was I Surprised
Favorite GM ?
I'm guessing the new top was a succsess.
Have a Graet Day,
Thank you for the link, It'll be awhile before I get there, but what the Hell, I'm going to dive in head first. (Question) who's instructions did you youse?? Clarks?? I'm thinking, I'd like to read two install guides.
