Soft Tops Top Straps Tonneau Covers Rear Curtains

World Upholstery & Trim manufactures authentic reproductions of the convertible top fabric found in Giulietta and Giulia Spiders from 1955 to 1965. The fabric attached to the convertible top frame tends to wear out from continuous use and aging; the tops we offer completely replace this fabric and restore the original look and feel of your convertible top. The pre-sewn top fabric is designed for easy installation (instructions for an amateur restorer can be found here) but we strongly recommend the use of professional installers. We also offer replacement convertible top straps that usually need replacing as well.

World Upholstery's convertible tops replace the fabric attached to the convertible top frame of your Giulietta or Giula Spider, they can be manufactured using either Stayfast Canvas (original material) or Crush Grain Vinyl (cost effective alternative). Our tops only include the pre-sewn fabric and sewn-in plastic window, they do not include any other hardware and the frame and other parts must be re-used or replaced.

The transition from 750 Series to 101 Series slightly changed the dimensions of the top frame of the Giulietta Spider, the 101 Series Spider was longer and added front vent windows (wind wings). The Giulia Spider top is almost identical to the Giulietta top except for an extra flap on the sides that is not visible from the outside. These minor changes did not dramatically change the overall look of these tops, so please make sure to specify the type of Spider that you have when ordering.

Even though we offer installation instructions that can be found here topping installation is not for everyone. It requires removal of the old topping material, some precise measurements and handling of delicate parts so we strongly recommend the use professional installers.

Top Straps (Pair)

Top straps are located on top of the bows of the convertible top frame and act as guides to keep the bows aligned. These straps are visible when looking at the top from inside the Spider, they normally get damaged and worn out from use and may need replacing when the topping is replaced. World Upholstery & Trim offers replacements made of Stayfast Canvas and are only sold in pairs.

Tonneau covers are an alternative to cover your convertible's interior while your top is folded down. It is made with the same material used in convertible top fabric; there is a zipper between the driver side and the passenger side to allow you to drive the car while the tonneau cover is in place. World Upholstery & Trim makes a unique tonneau cover that does not require you to drill holes in your Alfa, it mounts to existing top hooks on the rear, uses "common-sense" fasteners on the sides and "lift-the-dot" fasteners in the front. When installing, spread the cover over the car and make sure the fasteners are on the correct position before attaching.

Giulietta and Giulia Spiders used a vinyl curtain to cover the convertible top "well" where the soft top is stored when folded down. Around early 1958, the design of the rear curtain was changed, extending it farther back to the rear of the car and over the sides. World Upholstery & Trim offers authentic looking reproductions of both curtains and can be made using any of the following materials:
   a.) Italian Vinyl (original material)
   b.) German Vinyl (alternative imported material)
   c.) Domestic Vinyl (alternative american material)
   d.) Stayfast Canvas (topping material)
