CONVERTIBLE TOP BOOTS, AKA HOOD STOWAGE COVERS,
“Four Material Choices Including Sunfast Canvas”
If your original boot has seen better days or if it is missing altogether, you can
purchase any of the ones listed here with confidence. TRF's boots are manufactured by
The Magic Carpet Factory, and quality is excellent in any of the material choices
offered. Note that custom details are available, sometimes at an additional charge.
Items such as piping colour choices or vinyl piping on a Sunfast canvas boot are
possible, as most convertible top boots are made to order, usually within two or three
weeks of receiving the order. Availability of exotic materials may sometimes lengthen
the time required for delivery.
Convertible top boots were originally made in outdoor material to match interior
vinyl colours. Regrettably, none of these materials is available today, although some of
the materials used by The Magic Carpet Factory come very close. Boots are offered in
Robbins top material which comes in four basic colours to match Robbins tops. Boots
are also offered in British Everflex material, which is a very high quality outdoor
material, and colours such as red are a good match for a Matador Red interior. Caramel
tan in either Robbins material or in Everflex also makes a good match for Light Tan
used for TR250 and very early TR6 interiors. Sunfast canvas is another option, in
which case a Sunfast top would be the likely thing to match. If you have your heart set
on matching an interior colour such as New Tan or Shadow Blue, then making your
boot from interior vinyl is the best choice available. Interior vinyl may not be as
durable as the other materials in this application, but The Magic Carpet Factory
reinforces it underneath for the best possible result.
The Magic Carpet Factory's patterns are carefully worked out, and the finished
products are very nice indeed. Many hundreds have been sold over the past fifteen
years. Material and colour samples are available for free upon request. Please specify
materials and colours desired when requesting material samples.
