Let them guide you through the process of installing a new roof on your 1930 Coupe.

This program begins after the new wood roofing kit has been installed. The body is off the car and has been bead blasted to remove the paint. A coat of primer has been applied to the entire surface. The perimeter of the roof opening has received a coat of the final body color.
Now, you will see how the roofing materials are sized and installed to meet the requirements of your specific car.

  • Create a template for your roof that can be used for sizing the materials needed.
  • Cut the vinyl to size.
  • Cut the fiberboard to size.
  • Learn how to create a two-curve fit with no bows or bulges.
  • Learn how to know where to drill for fastening the fiberboard to roof struts.
  • See how to smooth the vinyl material so there are no bubbles or waves.
  • Learn how to form the aluminum border railing to accommodate the corners.
  • Learn how to fasten the border railing to the roof.
  • Learn how to seal the roof so it won't leak.
  • See the final work product both before and after final painting.

How can you install a roof on your Coupe that will stand up to the rigors of touring without leaking in the rain? This program will show you the steps you should take to accomplish just that. You will have complete confidence in the quality of your work if you follow these steps.
