    1997 Ferrari F355 convertible top and frame

    Not sure if anyone cares, but I came across a convertible top and frame on ebay this morning. It's in California. Just wanted to post it out there.

    Sorry about, here it is.

    I am like most, still without a top. Thinking of making a one piece removable top to look like a convertible top. But we will see. Any ideas would be awesome

    I am almost there. Mr. Mike has agreed to help me with my top as a personal favor. He did my interior in 1998 so I suspect this top will hold up equally well.

    I am sorry to say the top on eBay is great for getting some ideas for making a frame but other than that it simply will not fit on a Fiero or it would be on my car. It is too long over the door glass and too narrow above the windshield and deck lid areas to the tune of 2 inches per side.

    Here is the 355 with the top up, note over the door glass.

    I see what you mean dave, also wanted to ask are you still wanting to sell your old interior? If so I'd be very interested.

    Let me know if you decide to go with the 1 piece designed top. I did mine this way and it came out really good.

    I built that frame out of square tubing that I bought at Lowes. I bent it to match the contours of the body and then had it wrapped in the same top material as used on BMW's. The top bolts on with 6 bolts (2 at the header, 2 at the B-pillar and 2 at the very rear of the "V". There is a post around here somewhere that goes into much more detail. If you can not find it, let me know and I will go through it again. I even created another frame to give the car that "top down" look...
