Followers of the list,
I have just procured a Snug-Top fiberglass hard top for my '77 'B. The
windows are OK, but it lacks any weather stripping, and the brackets don't
Can you recommend where I can find the proper seals and front brackets for
the top? I have gone to snugtop.com, but they seem obsessed with camper
shells and Miata tops rather than supplying seals for their past models.
Kelvin, you mentioned you might have some seals, or knew where to get them.
The gentleman who gave me the top (that's right, he gave it to me!) also has
a fiberglass hard top for his bug-eye sprite. This top also is lacking its
weather stripping and I feel it would be a friendly gesture if I could get
some seals for his top as well. I don't know the brand of his top, but the
latches for the windshield are molded into the outside of the top and it
doesn't have quarter panel windows, simply the rear window.
I thank you for your help in these matters,
PS. What kind of protection does a fiberglass top afford the driver without
a rollbar in the event of a roll-over? Slim to none?
