Karmann Ghia - Convertible Top Installation - Part 4 - Outer Canvas
It been a long time since the last video on the install (September 2012 to be exact). The top arrived from TMI by way of HOG and this video shows the installation of the canvas top onto the headlined and padded frame. I will have one more video in this series showing the finishing touches and adding all the necessary seals around the windows.
Karmann Ghia - Convertible Top Installation - Part 2 - Headliner
A step by step of how I installed the custom tweed headliner from Mike at
House of Ghia (made by TMI) in my 1974 VW Karmann Ghia. Thanks to Vince
(Ghiaaddict) on thesamba for his step by step tutorial. I would not have
even attempted this without his help and guidance.
