Padded top for my '31 A
When I was first building my '31 roadster, I assembled a frame for a padded (Carson style) top intending on using that instead of a modified Ford Model A top. Several years later, I have a modified Ford style top on my car. Looks good, well made - but it acts like a sail(wind collector). I have some photos of the construction - in process - none of the finished framework though will take some soon. This gets me to the question - How is a padded top made? I prefer to NOT use chicken wire as the final form as the original Carsons were made. Someone!! Point me in a direction so I can at least dig out some information, do some reading on these tops so that maybe I can finish it one of these days.
