Getting ready to install the soft top on the TR3A. Does anyone know of a source for a suitable replacement for the original webbing. The original webbing which is quite deteriorated, is a rather thin but very stable (not stretchy) material. It was folded over to make a double layer, approximately 2 1/4" wide. I would consider any suitable replacement. Oh yeah,I would like tan or natural. The top is tan.

Thanks Dave. I called TRF today but they were busy and said they would call back, but I'm still waiting. I'll be waiting to hear from them.

There are lots of sources for seat belt material.
Comes in every shade imaginable, is the right width, doesn't stretch.
If you do a concentrated search, you can probably find it by the yard.

I started with TRF webbing, planning to dye the natural colour a suitable shade of grey .. dyeing unsuccessful! I then went to Moss webbing .. right colour, but so fragile that it tore at the attachment points. After a short search on the net, I found https://www.seatbeltplanet.com/ and they were most accommodating. Only $5.75 per yard, and countless colours. Shipping to Canada added a bunch of $$'s, but you wouldn't have that problem!
Hope it'll work out for you,
Simon.

The original was a cotton webbing, and not all that strong if you weren’t careful raising the hood. I found a perfect replacement from JoAnn’s Fabric store in the original natural, or off white color. The most durable material would be seat belt nylon webbing, but not as was original on it.

Simon, thanks for the tip for using the seat belt material for the hood stick webbing. Ordered from Seatbeltplanet, and color matched perfectly.

Great Tip!!

So glad it worked out for you! I just installed mine last week, and the top looks taut and smooth. Nice product! My mildly arthritic thumbs are finding it progressively harder to wrestle the top on, but it's nice to have the option, especially here on the 'Wet' Coast smiling smiley
Cheers, Simon.
