In this ‘How To Guide’ Toby talks about the three main reasons for the soft tops of Figaro cars cracking.  It tends to be due to age, leaving the roof material folded for too long (causing ‘stress cracks’) or due to the fabric backing in the cavity of the roof getting slightly damp – which tends to rot the canvas from behind and make it crack.  The best solution to this is to only fit high quality marine grade vinyl if you can, which is a lot more durable – this is the quality we use for our parts at The Figaro Shop.  We can replace the various hood parts for you from our Parts Shop, and are happy to give you fitting guides for specific areas too.
