my home made t top shades

This is a discussion on my home made t top shades within the Appearance Section forums, part of the General Help category; I like it. I think it looks good and anything that makes your car "yours" is something to be proud ...

    I like it. I think it looks good and anything that makes your car "yours" is something to be proud of! I see where you are going with it and ya know, I bought my car used and the covers didn't come with it.... So, for those of us who don't feel like ordering them from the dealership or finding them on ebay, we gotta find the creativity in us and let it flow! I wanna see a finished product and I may very well be interested in a pair as well!

    Nice going MOD.... I don't think he should be bashed at all!

    Good job sgt0704. I love to read up on DIY jobs too. I'm looking at doing something similar in the boot/trunk space of my SS to hide storage compartments. I'd love to see the pics of the finished product...

    Cheers Bill

    i'll probably go get the material this weekend to cover them. i just wanted to make sure that the letters and everything would hold up in the 118 degree outside, plus whatever it is in the car, heat. so far so good. thanks for the compliments. also, if i can get the tan fabric at the store, i could do it. but let me see if it turns out..

    Good job with those. I have done the same thing with my 79 T/A, and just need to jet them covered in headliner material. I'll post a pic as soon as I can. And foam core as you used is perfect as they press fit into place with out moving while driving.

    I've been keeping an eye on this thread purely because I'm interested how the finished product turns out. I fear that if the petty bickering gets out of hand, the mods will remove thread altogether.

    Start a 'Bitch' thread. It could be very entertaining. You could flame, accuse, threaten and spit at all your favourite forum members.

    sgt0704, filter out the constructive criticism and ignore the plain negative posts. You need not defend your creativity... Looking forward to the finished pics

    I used foam board, i guess that's what it is. basically it's kinda like cardboard with foam in the middle. i used black so that it doens't show on the t tops. i'm going to be putting a camaro emblem on them, then covering them in headliner material in the near future.

    helps keep the leather seats cool.

    would any one be interested in a set for say $35 bucks?
    Ok I went back and looked at these againjust to make sure I wasnt being picky .. but I cant say I was... maybe if you have an ss .. do the ss logo on them thatd be something better .. in the actual font on the emblems maybe .. thatd be a lil more likeable

    Trunk, I think you guys call it? The empty space between the back seat and rear bumper.
