Re: Installing a vinyl top on a non vinyl top '69
There was one Yenko that was ordered without a vinyl top, and the potential buyer wanted one installed. They went to a local shop and had them install one all the way to the drip rail rather than as the General did it. It eliminated the need for the special trim. I saw that car at one of the Yenko reunions, and it looked pretty good. I always felt the 69 vinyl top looked a little funny.
If you want the stock look, watch ebay for the trim pieces...they seem to be reasonable on there. The stock trim pins were stud welded to the roof. I would find someone to do that rather than take a chance on water leaks with the screw on replacements.
