What are we going to do about this top?
We could try a different supplier? Same material?russParticipantApril 10, 2019 at 7:17 amPost count: 61
Grey/silver canvas from Lebaron Bonney like Alan’s ragtop? Get Doug to sew it so that there is no excuse.
Just a heads up, LeBaron Bonney has closed up shop. Filed Chapter 7 last month.
damn that sucks to hear i’ve done two separate interiors from them years apart, they were always top notch to deal with.

I say that i call global upholstery and drop ship 5yards of #2798 to Kcw. Doug redial the top like it should be. No short cuts. Make it kcw proud. What u say?FranzKeymasterApril 10, 2019 at 9:09 amPost count: 2396

I told Doug that it looked like shit and needed a new one. He said he would rather buy a pre-made unit. I contacted Chuck’s Convertible and he assured me that his are super-nice and right.
He has several colors available if you like the stayfast material.
We also need the chrome trim strips for the top while you are at it.unkParticipantApril 10, 2019 at 12:50 pmPost count: 287
I emailed John about it. When he checks his email, I am sure he will chat to you about it. I think we should go the 1889SF route.russParticipantApril 10, 2019 at 1:09 pmPost count: 61

Rhd door mechs we did not have. I made them from lhd parts. Reversed cam plate and spring on the handle mount. I’m not going to show how I did the mechs cause it was easy.
The passenger door will lock by flipping the inner handle backwards…like stock.

It’s educational spending time in the clean shop around Franz. I feel lucky to be a part time clean shopper.
We will build it if it comes.unkParticipantApril 11, 2019 at 8:02 amPost count: 287
Hey Franz…….I’ve been thinking about it. That black top sucks and I really want this to be top shelf. Rip it off. Order the 1889SF Berry/Blac from chucks. Let’s hope this one works. I will send you guys a check for the new top material. Keep cranking and thanks a lot. Get those chrome pieces you need too.
