1969 Vinyl Top

Need to replace the vinyl top on my 69 coupe. Any suggestions where I might find the correct material, or pre-cut material that matches the style and seams as originally used in 1969?

One of the issues or some parts suppliers product has been the orientation of the seams that go across the roof. SMS, as far as I know, has the proper look & location of the seams.

Remember that the seams on the lower part by the trunk go above the quarter to deck panel seams....

Authentication and pre-purchase inspection service still available. PM me for more information.
Still looking for that elusive 76 Nova SS.

Evidently you have to order them that way from SMS. On my '69 SMS Parchment vinyl top those seams aren't in the correct location.
