vynil hard top replacement

(1/1)

dave:
hey how is everyone--- new here--

 just picked up a 67' for my wife-- it's no jem, but has potential.
needs some light body work, and some light mechanical work--
interior is a complete mess, but shouldn't be too much of a problem

 here is the issue-- it had a vynil hard top that was torn off--- the rooof is full of rust--- blasting the rust, and filling the pits isn't a problem. but i've never actually replaced a vynil top before--- not too sure what's involved-- i can get the surface smooth-- but am not sure about materials or where to get them---

i've been a mechanic for over ten years and done alot of body work-- so i'm pretty sure that i am capable-- but am unfarmiliar with this-- does the vynil need to be stretched? anything special about the glue?

any help would be great

thanks
dave

Hi Dave and welcome to our forum.
Mopar Muscle magazine replaced a vinyl top on a Dodge Charger. Everything is explained in detail and it should not be much diferent than on a Mustang. Just make sure there is no rusty metal left on the roof or the vinyl will bubble very fast.
