top Color Material

Post by Pete DeVito » Tue Mar 18, 2014 8:50 pm

I am make a top like the optional top that was offered for my Capri. I am wondering if anyone knows of the Sunbrella color that would be most correct to use.

If you have a photo of old top or something to start with could be more exact. if a cloth or a vinyl. I belive they were a off white or cream in color but have not seen very many. the ones I have seen new are toast in canvas. some older ones had vinyl and a good replacement for those ate Aqualon marine topping. best of luck. Are you having a frame custom made ? you can purchase pre made kits from shops with a few measurements you can purchase the cut bars to your exact needs. You just measure width at attachment anchor. THE HEIGHT YOU WANT FROM WHERE THE ANCHOR IS UP TO ANY HEIGHT UP TO 80 OR SO INCHES. tHEY SHIP IN SECTIONS AND POP RIVET AT CENTERS , THEN STAINLESS STEEL OR ALUMINUM?
