hey guys im new to this forum so sry if i do something wrong or if someone aready asked this. I have an 89 with a cloth top that covers the whole top of the roof. Looks like a dealer install. Im sixtenn and want it to look cooler so i was wondering if anyone evr tried to take the cloth top off and paint it. Is there regular sheetmetal under there?? thanks guys

Most cars do have a normal sheet metal roof under the fake leather/cloth top. You'll find that there will probably be some mounting studs/hardware up there that you'll have to remove or smooth out before painting.
My brother has a 71 Chrysler, he took off the fake fabric and the paint underneath was better than original.

Fix the problem with this fabric spray paint. Has no odor, and dries permanant and soft.
Some of their deals, i painted the interior of my car Emerald took 10 cans.: http://www.fabricspraypaint.com/Default.asp?Folder=149&Name=Super_Fabric_Paint_Deals
The general info page- has some good info: http://www.fabricspraypaint.com/Simply_Spray_Fabric_Paint.asp?Category=16&Name=Fabric_Spray_Paint
When you order, you can through the site, but for bigger prokjects if you call them, not sure of their number they can get you a deal.
