cloth top??

489 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  ToughGuysGirl
I just bought my fist VW this weekend. My boyfriend is a fellow VDuber and I have joined the club

I purchased a white 98 cabrio with a white VIYNAL top and I am interested in buying a black cloth top. Has anyone converted their Cabrio to cloth if so where can I get one, or how much do they run??

Okay, back on topic...

Cloth and canvas are one in the same. Meaning, when someone says, "I've gotta cloth top," the top is canvas. Canvas is a type of cloth/fabric.
There's 3 types of tops:
- Pinpoint/smooth vinyl
- Grain vinyl
- Canvas
Cabrio canvas tops are more expensive than vinyl (approx. $350-600) and there's several on-line retailers such as CabrioWorld.com. Be aware that many top suppliers do not supply white canvas (unless you go through your dealer, which will cost even more).
