Hardtop respray preparation

Post by Gr3g4 » Mon Nov 20, 2017 12:32 pm

Hi.

I'm interested in buying used hardtop and I'm just wondering if there are any instructions in preparation for a respray? I don't want to tear up anything in the inside. I guess the inner layer has to be stripped completely for the respray?

I need some 1st hand info from someone who did that. Thanks. :thumbsup:
