  • Other: Lark 62 skytop

    Can i get a picture of your slide roof.Because I would like to know how are attached the metal rods of the canvas.
    You could see pictures of mine, and i found a manual picture of skytop of vw beetle.
    I'll want to know if it's stitched in the canvas or if a slit was made as a buttonhole, as we see on the vw beetle.
    Thanks for your help

    I think they had a 'pocket' for the rods to slide through but the one I know of may have been re-done, and in tatters. Some of it may be still good enough to examine. Where did you find a pattern? Would you have measurements? There are one or two owners here, maybe they know for sure.

      I bought the Lark like that, i don't have the old pattern.
      As I will sell it, I would like to solve this problem.

        Since the Skytop came from the same Mfg. as the ones used in period Mercedes Benz Cars, I would look there for help.

          I have owned two Skytops, but I do not remmber the detail. I believe that the cross rods were encased, but I do not remember the details of how.
          There is a web site for these Skytops run by Paul W. You might try there for answers.
