  • Top dressing

    I have thought about renewing the top sealant on my 29 business coupe, but given that it is only a single thickness of fabric, I am concerned about the chemical odor permeating the interior of the car and making it unpleasant or even unhealthy. Can anyone advise me what they have used on older sport coupe and business coupe tops, and has odor been a problem?

    These seem to be the best two from what I have read.

        Sport coupe Top
        by carolinamudwalker
        Ok, I probably am not using the search option properly. (whats new) Could not find anything on replacing the top on a sport coup. My question is: Can the outer fabric be replaced without removing the entire top?

        Who knows about the Sport Coupe?
        by DaWizard
        Now, when I was younger, my first A was a '30 Sport Coupe, but all I really remember about it was it had some vinyl seat cover material for a roof.

        Today I was working on an Aug '28 Sport Coupe and noticed something I had not remembered about my first one. It seems that the "Special Coupe" wasn't the only model to have a removable beltline. Can any of you out there in Model

        29 Special Coupe Roof
        by Rowdy
        Is the roof panel above the door norrower or wider than the panel above the door than that of a tudor? Looking for these panels for my Dads special coupe and a friend called me and the right side he bought for his tudor is narrower than what he needs. Hoping it is the right width for the special coupe and I can trade him for the one I have for a tudor. For some reason I was thinking the one for the...

        Replacing the top on my unrestored late 31 Coupe.
        by Ronnie Hill
        I had no choice but to replace the top on my unrestored late 31 Coupe.
        I don’t drive it when it’s wet but the top had rips in it letting wind get through and i was afraid it would tear up the original head liner. I’m pretty sure that it’s original but something seems to be missing.

        I posted before about our T but we just bought a '28 A Sport Coupe. It is an older restoration that runs and drives great.

        Top of coupe
        by Mickey
        Can you replace the wood in the roof of the coupe without removing the metal panels on the top sides. I know the front metal needs to come off and I assume probably the headliner. The top was leaking so I pulled the vinyl back and found mouse nests and rotted wood.
