C3 Corvette Convertible Top Replacement from Zip

Do you know the average lifespan of a convertible top? According to industry experts, a quality vinyl top should last 3-5 years and quality canvas will give you 7-10 years. Lots of factors can affect the lifespan including usage and exposure to elements.
