  • 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

        Some thoughts and questions about the top for my special coupe.
        by rusty
        Has anybody used 1/2” x 1/2” hardware cloth? Looks like lt would be more rigid than 1” chicken wire. Not concerned about originality. What are your thoughts?

        Special Coupe Top - Fine Point Judging
        by rborn1
        Been working on installing the top on my 28 Special Coupe. I have the rear skirt in place and now am putting on the top material. My question deals with sealant. I have a set of procedures for doing the top installation that indicates to put sealant under the front edge of the top, and under the rear edge of the top between the top material and the rear skirt material. Talking with Mike from Classtique...

        I’ll be ready to install a new top on my ‘29 Sport Coupe in the next couple of months. Does anyone know of a good write-up or video showing how to do this ?

        Anyone know of a good cloth top installation video for Model A Sport Coupe closed Top?
        by mpollock
        Looking for video on closed top installation for a Model A Sport Coupe. They all seem to be only for roadsters.
