Everybody has a comfort zone when it comes to working on their cars. Many have no issues about turning wrenches, building engines and transmissions, modifying brakes and suspensions, even doing custom engine swaps and programming engine management computers. Some don't even flinch at difficult sheetmetal swaps, narrowed rearends, or installing tubs.

Our fear factor usually goes up as the ability to back up and do it over goes down. This is especially true with something that you can't practice first-where it's all or nothing on the first try.

Installing a vinyl top could be considered an "all the way or nothing" kind of job, especially when it's going on an A12 Six Pack Superbee. We first learned of this car at Muscle Car Restorations (MCR) when we did the framerail swap story in 2007. Now it's ready for a vinyl top, and we wanted to help you add this to the list of things you're not afraid to do. The truth is that installing a vinyl top is not all that difficult once you have a few professional tips to guide you.

MCR doesn't install their YearOne sourced vinyl tops at their shop. They send all their vinyl work to Auto Top Shop in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, where Larry Gabus has been replacing vinyl and convertible tops and doing all types of upholstery work for more than three decades. He's MCR's number one choice for all their restoration projects.
