I'm not sure how I missed this thread. What a great car!!!!!! Beautiful.
Wow. Make sure that it's long enough and that there's definitely enough material to pull it with beyond the roof!
There should be enough material. They surely didn't provide excess material.
How much was the top?
$549 shipped, including tax.
Did you decide to go the extra mile and paint the top prior to the vinyl install?
Can't wait to see this on and the trim in place - I keep my eyes on this one, such a great looking car!
It will be painted prior to installation. Less then ideal temperatures in my workspace to attempt using filler/painting during the winter months has held this project hostage. Hoping to get a warmer day here in the next few weeks to get that done.
Buttercup is (temporarily) sporting a new look. @71Polara383 shared those photos with me today.
Her top has been primed and painted, she is now ready for her new SMS V1Y top. I thought I'd post those photos, so that everyone can see what the car would look like with a white painted top.
PS: she got a full tune-up this Sunday, too: plugs (Champion) - cap & rotor (Accel 8020) - oil change (PennGrade 15W40 oil, WIX filter) - trans mount (Prothane) - trans filter/fluid/gasket - Exhaust leak fixed (Remflex 6006).
While the white looks good I think the tan vinyl will look even better - Looking good!
Thanks! White does look good, but she is indeed going back to gold (not tan):
The lighting and my screen make the paint look like Y2 Sunfire Yellow in those photos!
How come the latest photos show the rear end jacked up and the former (lighter) ones do not? Were air shocks installed or spring assist shocks? Where are the center caps??? That tail pipe has to go............
Beautiful car, especially with a gold boar grain vinyl top on it coming.....................
No air shocks. Must be the angle I took the pictures from.
Incorrect center caps are now in Minnesota, need to remove stickers from a set michael picked up in PA.
The tail pipes gotta go. I agree.
After further evaluation, the non-OEM dual exhaust is actually in reasonable shape and sounds pretty good. @71Polara383 will help me figure out if the tips could be replaced (for better looks), but I am not keen on spending a bunch more Ben Franklins to replace the whole exhaust if it ain’t broke.
@ayilar , Your posts are second to none. Even though it takes me days to go through a single thread I really enjoy reading them, and re-reading them. Wonderful reference resource.
Yeah I too agree, they're too low. Maybe cut the end of the exhaust pipes and make like an S (like below if that makes sense) to move em up a bit, OR just put a set of TTI's on it
Buttercup is on her way to get a new V1Y vinyl top (material is from SMS; installation is scheduled for the beginning of next week at a shop recommended by @david hill ). Here is one last pic with the painted white top -- thank you again to @71Polara383 for all the work getting her to that stage!
