Carson Style Top

Who has it? I remember someone here does.

My hardtop has so many deep spider webs that it might be easier to glue some canvas to it vs sanding all the gelcoat and refinishing it.

Thoughts?

Like this?  (OH, you probably mean the hardtop version - someone out in the Midwest, IIRC.)

How bout if you got some boat canvass or even some Haartz fabric?

And from Amazon:

It comes in about 6 different colors from black through blues and into gold.

Glue it onto the top fiberglass like they did with a "vinyl top" in the 1970's!

Yes, that's what I was thinking, like the 70's. I could just glue the canvas material with a thin padding and not worry about perfect prep for paint.

Gregg, I'm afraid the spider webs would eventually show through the wrap, so I'd have to prep it just as good as if I where to paint it.

Decisions, decisions...
