My top from Clastique Upholstery is now completely installed.
Good fit and the quality is great!
Nice! I've heard nothing but good things about that company here on the forum.
Nice install job too.
The new top for my '22 Touring from Classtique is in the walk-in closet in the back of the house and the bows are in the storage unit downtown. All my time and money has been going into my sedan and a hundred other projects. Maybe next Winter will allow time for the touring car.
Well done, Steve! Nice car and good job on the top installation.
Nicely done. The perfect amount of stretch and tension. Wish mine looked half that good.
You are to be commended for a beautiful installation Steve. Elizabeth does put out excellent quality too.
Mike, I'd suggest taking the top that's in your walk in closet, if it's still in the box, out of the box, and spread it out somewhere. Tops left folded can get a pretty good "set" in the fabric, any kit should be removed from packaging and spread out until installed.
Thanks for the comments.
I did the installation all by myself, so I had to do some gymnastics to get things set up correctly.
The foundation of the top are the bows, so make sure they are good and set up straight before you even begin with the top install.
Mike unless you have a heated space for the top install, I would strongly recommend that you do it on a hot day and leave the top and rear curtain out in the sun before so that you can get a good stretch.
If you install in cool weather, you may be surprised at the wrinkles you will discover when the days get hot.
