Tudor sedan Tops

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by PeteMattersen, Feb 15, 2013.

  1. Let's see your model a tudor sedan tops. I want to see how you trimmed it out, hide em' vs. wire on welt, Welt tips and ends,or mouldings. I also want to see different materials that have been used. Not a fan of the stock material. Just trolling for ideas/insight. thanks in advance

    I got 2 to show;

    First is on a body had built but not used yet and it has ribbed roof panel of some SUV/Blazer dont remember right now.

    Second is a flat sheet from an early Ford Station wagon.

    It sure helps strengthen up the whole body and pretty well guarantees no leaks or re-roof jobs later.

    I would like to do to my own current sedan project like I did to my old coupe but the press-pleat material is not wide enough to run lengthwise like this.. I may just run it crosswise or I've been looking at some cool awning canvas material that might work.. Post some pics of whatever you decide....

    Not a very good picture, but, I used to work at a sign shop, used a printed vinyl banner with hidem on the sides and powder coated aluminum front and back.

    I wonder if you could just fab a piece metal like 22 gauge,or hell I don't. I don't know if I want to go back with factory top or not. I saw a thread somewhere a guy took a piece of 22 gauge and made a top for a chevy truck like a 49 or 50 model truck,not saying that I could but someone could.
     
  10. thanks guys, Not looking for steel roof suggestions. Fully aware of how to do that, I'm looking for more cloth style tops.
