Hardtop "Dress" Plates

This is one of those parts that should have been included with every hardtop or surrey top purchase: A "dress" plate to cover the visible bolt holes for the convertible top frame bracket.

To address this issue I've designed a decorative blanking plate to cover the empty holes. This plate is 3/16" thick and is made out of 5052 aluminum in a brushed finish with countersunk holes. You can leave the finish brushed but it's also suitable for clear coating, powder coating, paint or chrome.

Here it is installed on a car with a hard top in place. You can see how perfectly it aligns with the hard top bracket.
This shows how the hard top bracket fits in to the notch in the blanking plate.
This is what it normally looks like. When the Hard Top is installed the mounting bracket only utilizes one of the three holes, leaving the other two exposed. I think the Hard Top Plate dresses up the installation nicely.


The cost for a pair is $36.00 plus $6.00 shipping within the continental USA. Other shipping will be on a quoted basis.
