Your chassis number should be 1552012217 or lower.

Note:Inserts take the shape of the rear window steel frame.
If your steel frame is distorted then when it is stapled into
the back of the top it will be mismatched with
the glass window. We strongly recommend either a careful
reshaping of your steel rear window frame, or the use of a
new rigid unit which we offer that will minimize
any grief associated with the installation of the rear window glass.

Important Information
Plastic vs Wood: The real wood bows will accept the stapling without the risk of chipping and cracking that plastic bows have. We strongly recommend the wood bow over the plastic (sometimes called "wood replacement bows" !!)

Wood, Glues, etc.: We use only the best industrial grade cascamite marine glues in our bows. We have made these bows since 1974 (our wood shop is nearly 40 years running) and because we are a commercial factory, we have access to the appropriate industial adhesives, etc.

We use kiln dried highest graded hardwoods for durability and defect free wood.

Trial Fitting: We have chassis clips in our shop. Every bow we make is test fitted to the proper chassis section. This insures a minimum of 'fuss' when you install your wood top bow.

In Stock: Our shop is in operation every day making bows for classic convertibles from VW to Rolls Royce. We maintain an inventory of bows and can almost always ship very quickly.
