Vinyl roof redo.

OK I have discovered my '70 Caddy Coupe Deville has something going on under the vinyl top. Whether its rust, or the vinyl is just coming up off of the roof, I'm not sure.

I kinda doubt there is rust, because the rest of the car is nearly rust free (a little behind the fender skirts). I have not decided whether I'm going to remove the top, and just leave it steel, or redo the vinyl. Kinda depends how hard redoing the vinyl is.

I would like the car to remain basically stock, not doing anything irriversible. I plan on lowering the car, and running some big 17" wires, but other than that leave it bone stock.

OK, the question. Do you have to buy a kit specific for the car. Or do you buy a sheet of this vinyl material, and stretch and glue it on. I really have no experience with this. I Mean I've taken them off in the past (what a headache) but never restored one. We're starting on the car in the next week or so, so I'll put up some pics of it, And the resto.
