Cool, an actual convertible top expert
I have a convertible top that I plan on making from scratch. I've located the material, made the pads, located the top cable set ups (along the sides), plastic pcs (along the sides) rear window, pos. front tack strip. etc. I plan on cutting everything myself & having someone else sew it. I've used a old Singer ( non industrial w/ poly thread ) for interior work however, don't feel confident in sewing the long lines on the "Rag" top. What's the actual "overlap" method of sewing the 3 to 4 pieces of material together?
