Help ! sometime this year i need to decide on choosing a new roof for the '69 cab.Some of you may know me as Russ with the brown labrador and tatty yellow cabrio i've had for 22 years now. Well its been off the road for the last 3 years and is midway through a full body off -16 new panel- nut and bolt ground up rebuild. New top new bumpers new interior NEW ROOF new wiring loom new chrome . Most of this is being tackled by best mate and local car club member who has not worked on a Ghia before although stuff like interior trimming will be subbed out to professional coachtrimmers. I'd like to know if anyone can advise me on which roof covering is most suitable , which are nightmares to fit, and any good or bad experiences you've had with ready made verus one off custom fit covers made by a trimmer.I do prefer the vinyl acetate rear window rather than glass as i don't have the brackets for glass and you can carry more stuff with the roof down . The present roof is a black vinyl one which i quite like as it is easy to maintain , though i was considering a medium to dark grey one and do rather like the woven fabric ones. I do think the mohair ones look a tad bulky , any help would be much appreciated. Russ. [email protected] or reply on here cheers
I always thorght it was a material called dubble Duck that was used on convertable hoods ???? Andy w
IMHO Mohair is the way to go.Makes a car look far better than Plastic.If you need a good man to do a Ghia roof in mohair PM me,you won't be dissapointed.But it does cost a great deal more than vinyl.
