Once again I'm looking for expert advice.......Convertible Top advice. I have been looking at new tops and I'm amazed at the choices. First choice I guess is what material to choose. I see Haartz Stayfast Canvas, Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl, Chrysler Sailcloth Vinyl. These are the choices at Convertibletopguys.com. I'm checking all the usual places but I need some guidance. You guy's never let me down.
Thanks

I've never heard anyone say anything bad about Al Knoch tops

Put an Al Knoch top on "The Toy" 6 years ago and it still looks great.  Had thought about doing the job myself but after doing some research on what was involved (and I was running out of time) I opted to have a pro do it.  When looking for quotes to do the install most of the shops that I talked to wouldn't even consider doing it until I told them it was an Al Knoch kit.

I agree with Jim.  We always strongly recommend Al Knoch tops...  And any interior parts.
