Step By Step

When you remove the old top and frame from a car such as the one we've been working on, there will be a high degree of dry rot. This frame looked okay, but appearances can be deceiving....

When you get right down to it, isn't this the reason we have nice interiors and weatherproof convertible tops? When you need to get out of the rain, you want a comfortable place to sit and relax. Special thanks to interior expert Elbert Efird for installing our Kee Auto Top and covering the door panels with Arctic Ice from East Coast Leather to match the Recaro seats.

Compared to what the original top looked like when we initially brought the car to the shop, you'll have to agree it's quite an improvement. In this, the final article on the build of the '68 Hotchkis Performance Camaro Convertible, we'll take you through the details of how to refurbish old convertible tops and install a leather interior that'll last for years to come.
