For the first time in ten years, I’ve decided to garage my sprint over the winter and carry out some much needed repairs. The first being a well overdue vinyl roof replacement.
This a a stressful job though, as it involves removing the windscreen, something I’ve not done for a long time, and the cost of a replacement has caused me to put the job off before.
However, I decided to get on with it and today have cut out the old rubber from the outside, it was actually pretty straightforward. I’ll just wait for one of my sons be be around now to lift the screen out. I need somewhere safe to store it though, another problem.
I’ve taken a few pictures of what I have found so far:
Both bottom corners of the screen aperture need welding and the roof is rusty in parts, and actually in a hole just above the driver’s A post. I’m not sure what I was expecting, but I think that I hoped it would be better than this.
Does anyone know a good supplier of one piece vinyl roofs? Mine has no seams, I presume this is the later style, as my sprint is a 79 model.
