Replacement Soft Top for VW Volkswagen Cabriolet 1500, 1302, 1303, 1963-1979. Car Hood for convertible cabriolet car.
Original Sonnenland® canvas manufactured by the world’s leading manufacturer of convertible cloth toppings – highly UV and abrasion resistant (does not fade) and used by many car manufacturers, including Porsche, BMW and Mercedes, for their original equipment.
Factory exact, original design:
The hood’s window surround is reinforced with vinyl (if you prefer not to have any piping, please get in touch) in the same way as the later models of the BMW E30 and its sides fitted with flaps just as the original. The doubled up / reinforced sections in the area of the C-pillar are an important quality feature. We both sew and glue these reinforced sections onto our hoods just as in the original. These extra reinforcements require a fair amount of additional work to produce and are not always included on other hoods.. However, they make a hood significantly more durable.
No sewing required:
The main and side seams of the soft top have been professionally produced and to a very high quality standard. The hood does not require any additional sewing work.
We use a kind of thread that has been specially developed for soft tops and swells up when wet and consequently effectively seals the seam holes. All of the seams on the hood are furthermore treated with a fabric seam sealer to ensure that they are 100% waterproof.
No cleaning or waterproofing required:
There will not be any need for expensive cleaning or waterproofing agents. Sonnenland® canvas is a 3-ply material and has a rubber middle layer. The rubber layer keeps water from penetrating through the roof.
Information on the rear window:
Flexible polyglas rear window, with the same thickness (1 mm) as the original, TÜV-certified, permanently sewn-in. The window has a green tint just like the original. Please get in touch if you would prefer a clear window.
PVC window protection:
The PVC windows for our hoods are protected with our carefully sewn-on window protector and tissue paper during transport and right up until they are fully fitted. This was an intentional move on our part, and is very different from the less expensive fastening options that only involve tape and/or paper. Although this involves significantly more work, it prevents the window protector from moving out of place or coming loose during transport and fitting, and the window from becoming scratched. It also ensures that there will not be any adhesive residues on the hood canvas/window, which are often difficult to remove.
Ready-to-fit soft top without frame and seals - which will be reused.
