Vinyl Top Practice


Recommended Posts

I have never done a vinyl top before, but I want to do one on a kit I am working on. I figured I would practice on this Polar Lights '64 GTO that I don't plan to build. It is now my test bed for new endeavors.:) On the driver's side I used .020x.030 strip, which I wound up sanding down to more like 0.010 thick. On the passenger side I used .030 half-round which I sanded down also (but not enough). The dividing trim is also .020x.030 strip. I first painted it with Tamiya semi gloss, but it was too shiny. I gave it a second coat with Tamiya Matt black, which I think looks better. It also picked up more texture with the second coat. The blue is just cheap Craftsmart premium acrylic with a coat of pledge over top.
