Has anyone tried the Stayfast Top kits from Classitque ? Good...bad ?

Is this a name Mike dreamed up? As far as I know, he is using the standard T top material from Haartz.

It just came to me. The top material Classtique is using is called Turf Grain.

Stayfast is a different Haartz product line and apparently Classtique offers tops in this material as an upcharge:

Larry, Haartz calls it Stayfast also. Is it more of a canvas type materiel? Classitque sells it in tan and black.

Gary,

Yes, it's a canvas/cloth material.

Gary, is this what your asking about?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Gary Gregory on Wednesday, July 04, 2018 - 01:45 pm:

Yes Dallas ! I think that would look great on my 26 Roadster !

I really like it. It was cold when I installed it and no wrinkle problems. Classtique makes a great top. I did not want a shiney black top on my rusty farm truck so this was perfect. I wanted one since 1st seeing Dean Yoders truck.

Dallas...is the back removable on that cover ?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Dallas landers on Wednesday, July 04, 2018 - 02:46 pm:

It is a roll up flap. I love it. Makes a nice place for my extra led lights for night driving. No need to put the top down with the roll up.

Thanks Dallas. I'm restoring my Roadster and it'll be a while before I get around to buying a top...I'm missing the irons and bows also $$$$$$$$

Dallas - My '23 roadster/pickup has a top exactly like that and I really like it. Looks good and as you say, there's no need to put the top down with the large roll-up flap.

Some time ago, someone requested a photo of my '23 roadster pickup with that top. (.....a Mr. Osterman maybe?.....can't quite remember). Anyway, maybe if he (or whoever) reads this post, he could post the photo my wife sent him. She was just barely able to do that, but doesn't know how to post photos on this forum. Hey,....we're in our mid '70's and lucky to know how to use the computer at all! (:^) ......harold

.....boy,....I sure know how to "double-post" though,.....hate when that happens,.....sorry,.....harold

P.S. On this one, there was some sort of "time-lag" in the process, and I didn't think it posted the first time!

Harold, I'd love to see that photo ! Don't worry...I have a terrible time posting pictures...and I'm just 54 !

Gary - I did some checking and it was Mark Osterman that my wife sent the photo to. Mark is a very active forum participant, and perhaps if he reads this, he would be so kind as to post that photo we sent him:

Mark Osterman, are you out there? If it's not a lot of trouble, could you post that photo of my '23 roadster pickup and matching trailer that we sent you awhile back? Thanks in advance,....harold

Hi Harold,

I'm here. Just got back from Ireland. I did have that image ... before I lost my ipad on an Air France flight last week.


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Harold Schwendeman - Sumner,WA on Thursday, July 05, 2018 - 02:17 pm:

Aaaa,......sorry to hear that Mark. No big deal about the photo, but sure sorry to hear about your loss of the iPad. Would like to think that the airlines "lost & found" dept might come through, however, human nature being what it is,....I suppose it's more likely that somebody now has your iPad. And probably the worst loss to you is everything you had on it, right? In the meantime, thank you for the response,......harold

Mark, most cabin crews go through the whole airplane between flights, including cleaning out unwanted stuff from the seat back pockets. I once left my own iPad in an airplane and was able to get it back right away. If you haven't already spoken with Air France, I recommend you at least give it a shot. Try and have your seat number available since in my case that was how it was ID'ed.

I did my Montana 500 car that way and I love my top. It has been on now for seven years.

Thanks so much Gary! (....gosh, I wish I had the computer skills that you guys have!)

Tim, We have tried Air France but they have a system that never gives you an actual human with whom to speak. Very frustrating. We have it set up so that if anyone opens it up our contact info appears. If people try to use it on line it wipes all information.

Your welcome Harold ! I hope my 26 Roadster turns out as nice !

Very nice indeed Harold!
If unsure to press a funky looking button/future reference.
It looks funky on my 'puter.

Harold's T


It looks cooler under those tops... :-)

Thanks again Gary (and Duey) for posting the picture of my roadster pickup and trailer. I feel that I should explain that I cannot take credit for this neat little rig as it was built by the late (R.I.P.) Bob McDonald, and I bought it at his estate sale. Bob McDonald you might remember was the "T" guy from Federal Way, Washington that was extremely knowledgable in the area of Model T snowmobiles. He passed away quite suddenly and unexpectedly about three years ago and in my estimation, a very great loss to the Model T Ford community. He did a wonderful job on this little "T" (and trailer) as it runs as good as it looks, and I feel honored to be it's new owner,......harold

The most famous T man from Federal Way, Washington was Otis Clinton. He probably passed away 10 years ago. He was an institution up in that area, and was an expert machinist to boot! He made lot's of early T parts for the hobby, especially triple gear pins.

I know black is correct, but when and if I get that far, my 25 cut down will have a tan top. :-)
