    It took me a LONG time to sew, and despite efforts to keep canvas and vinyl tight, I have a loose vinyl window that does not look great. This is in line with what I suspect -- I haven't actually been into the shop yet. It's available right now Boxsterra - 2 years ago. Will get more pics uploaded over the weekend. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

    Boxster rear window vinyl replacement sew-in. I am midway through replacing the vinyl window in my '01 S. The original window had shrunk, and the window pulled out of the seams on the passenger side.

    For starters, this is a frustrating product. Working on engine parts is one thing, but fighting with fabric and thread without the aid of a sewing machine can be super frustrating. So, I started by measuring the old window, and order new vinyl Regalite 30 ga vinyl fabric from SailRite. Also picked up some basting tape this stuff is awesome , thread did not use the Sail Rite thread Used Razor to remove old window stitching. Laid old window on new vinyl and traced it out. I will likely just leave that extra on window.

    Used the basting tape to hold window on top in place. This did not work great. Had to use Gorilla Tape to hold it better. Tried to use the Speedy Stitcher, but had too many failures, so I tossed it aside and went to a plain old long sewing needle.

    After a couple hours of sewing, I have about 12" completed. Should be able to finish up in a few days. If you've seen the vinyl window and the inside of it, you will remember seeing a piece of black vinyl that sits on outside perimeter of the vinyl window. This black vinyl is very important as it acts to add support for the thread when you push it from the outside in.

    Without this black vinyl, the thread would be holding onto the convertible top and the window only. I had serious alignment issues with this piece of vinyl, but figured out how to align it as I go along. I would lie under the top and look up to ensure that vinyl was in the right place.

    I will have pics updated tonight. Not done yet, and this has been a big learning experience. I think the better route would have been to have the top done by a pro. And that is probably what I will do in a year or so. Last edited by sequel95; at Find More Posts by sequel Sorry about a few upside down pics. Well done By the way, I'm not seeing any pictures upside down. Find More Posts by mikefocke. You have been a huge influence on this project.

    It was the easiest part of the project thus far. Here are a few Flickr pics of this project: My thread has been snapping, which causes a 15 minute delay to clean up the thread end and rethread the needle. One of the most important aspects of this job is to ensure the black vinyl trim piece on the inside of top sits on the vinyl window is in place to accept the needle. I missed a few inches of the black vinyl fabric, and planning to use more seam sealant in that area on the inside of top. Find More Posts by Quadcammer.

    To make this project more practical, all we need is a recommendation for a better Awl and thread. Kevlar thread and visiting the Sailmaker's websites could be useful?

Also, auto tops direct sells a brand new high quality replacement for and actually, you could replace the top yourself, as you have managed to do, without removing the frame. Our guy down the street charges customers dollars labor to install a new top and does a great job.

So I finished the new vinyl window sew-in last night, and re-installed the top on the car. Well, the project did not turn out as I expected. It took me a LONG time to sew, and despite efforts to keep canvas and vinyl tight, I have a loose vinyl window that does not look great. I used a soldering iron gingerly to burn the thread knots and seam sealer basically contact cement to make sure the thread holes don't leak.
