Leather "imitation vert" hard top?
« on: April 03, 2009, 04:59:00 AM »

so I was thinking it might be fun to have an imitation vert top put onto the hard top I have for the capri. right now the car is teal and the top is white  :(  and I wanted it to match the car but also thought this might be something never done before on these cars.

just thought I would throw the idea out there and see what you think!

I think it'd look good!  Give it a shot, and post pictures.  I would have to think it would be cheaper than painting the hard top.

you have a teal and white capri and you dont like it ??? is it in good shape?  do you want a red one instead..LOL
 im on the prowl for a really nice teal with white top 94 xr2 capri,
 its rare as all get out. and in my opinion one of the best looking ones.

ive got a fully built 190 whp 91 xr2 capri. its red with every mod in the world done to it. and i would think seriously on trading it for a good condition, 94, teal, and white. bone stock one
i guess its just me. and thats what i want...

 as for the ragtop idea, thats a bad ass idea..
do it man. big props on the idea...Joe

Hey RCI!  I just drove away from your area in a teal '94 with hard top to match. Car is in great shape except the motor. Haven't had the energy since getting with it to check motor.  Gus

Hey RCI!  It's a full teal XR2 With Teal hard top. Factory never mixed the colors. Also hard tops didn't come on '94s from my understanding. Gus.

well here, let me run it by you guys.
  im thinking teal with a white softtop .
ive found the opaque paint i used on the red one i got, but in white.. so it would have white turns and 3rd brakelight.. with the 94 tails
and round bumpers, damn. then put it on 16 inch white motegi mr7 wheels and do a white on black interior with teal accents
ive already found the black on white racing seats i want for the build. and id do the miata style bar with a flat tonneau aggain.. but id do the tonneau in white instead of black.
