1968 Mustang Vinyl Removal Question?

Can i take the vinyl top off my car and leave it off for now? I plan on keeping the vinyl.

I will sand and paint area under the vinyl, the issue is when i first got the car the top was in good shape now after a year in georgia heat its cracked, now there there's bubbles and some rust under it.

I ges the im asking is, should i remove the vinyl sand and paint it for now to avoid having to replace the roof later on down the road? I just dont have the money right now to replace the vinyl.

Hi, I would not re-use the vinyl. First you will not get a smooth surface, plus it will probably not fit as you wish, you will get as well a lot of glue stucked on the vinyl.
You get get a new top for only 115 USD at CJ Pony, and some glue spray. Watch that you apply proper glue, otherwise you will get an uggly surface, I know...
I used glue from 3M, but other spray glue will be goo as well I guess.
I did it myself, it cost me a few hours on a saturday with 2 persons.

Good luck.


I'm in heaven with my '67.
