    My '71 Plymouth Satellite is 50 and has weathered the decades well. She is just starting to crack and peel. How do I repair and protect? IMG_20210916_163254597_MP.jpg IMG_20210916_163310248_MP.jpg

    Properly;
    1. Remove old vinyl top.
    2. Install new vinyl top.

    Or; if you're looking for a less costly repair
    Get a caulking gun with some silicone and goop er up.

      Don't let all those leaves fill up under window trim and decklid water troughs.. It will rot real quick if they are there and stay damp..

      It’s histoire!! Needs to be removed and replaced. Maybe some metal repair, but hopefully not.
