      My car originally had a vinyl top so I've thought about installing. Do you need to prep in any way to prevent water penetration and rust like a lot of the original vinyl top cars had to deal with.

        I think they were pretty thin on the paint when they knew it was getting vinyl that or it wore through when it got loose but every old mopar I’ve seen didn’t have much if any paint
        I just made sure I had a good layer of paint before I started and don’t miss any rust or it’ll come back fast under that vinyl

          I've done it, including the top on my current car. Use 3M. Use 3M. Use 3M.
