Picture request, CJ5s with ACME hardtop

Just bought a tan ACME top for mine, just curious I want to see what the hardtops look like on other CJ5s. People criticize me for not wanting to paint it. My Jeep is dark red, and the tan top looks fine I think. Let me see yours.

As long as you like it, who cares what others think? What color is your interior?

Personally, though, if I had a red jeep, I'd prefer a black, or gray hardtop. White is OK, too.

Hey nice top! I dig the no doors look, mine are off until I get some weatherstripping for them. Your top is in really nice shape, did you restore it? Mine came in great shape, no cracks or damage to the latches, even a sunroof! Since it is such a pain to remove the top, I'll likely pop the doors off during summer. If I could post a pic I would but the forum dosen't let me. Any ideas on where to get weatherstripping? Thanks for the pics guys BTW my interior is black

What kind of top is the all metal one? I'm looking to buy an early CJ5 with one and want to know who made it. I'll get a picture of it tomorrow.

95 xj bone stock for now

Can you go through the automatic car wash with an Acme top? Does anyone do it?

I just picked up an Acme hardtop with doors for my '77 CJ-5.

COBRA5LADDICT's Jeep is the nicest looking restored '5 with a hardtop that I have seen. He has also been a huge help in answering my many questions.

Below are some of the "before" pics.

Hopefully, I will have the "after" pics posted within a month or so.


Here is a picture of the Jeep that the top is for:




Here are a few pics as I found it.











Here are a few pics after I rescued it:

I think I am going to paint the inside and out of the top a grey/charcoal color, and paint the doors black as I think that it would be too much black, if the top was too.

Here is an updated dirty picture of the interior/seats.

Please excuse the mess...

Is that the part that goes over the windshield?
It looks strange.

I have a black top and the doors but it's not installed, having trouble locating the door latch hardware and catch for the door that mounts on the top.
Here's a pic:

Yeah, that is the part that mates to the WS frame. I haven't had a chance to test fit the top yet, but thought that part of the top looked kinda strange. Can you snap a pic of the front edge of your HT, and post it? Thanks!

Yes, that was confusing for me also. Mine looked like it attached through the sun visor mounts. but that left a gap on the outside. I don't know if it was hacked previously.


Here is the Slam Latch you Need: Passenger Restraint Latches - All Latches - 206 Series - Eberhard Manufacturing

Call them to find the closest dealer to you.

I found the back of my top was pushed in from being stored on the rear hatch for so long. This summer I put some clamps in place to push it back out hopefully.

john,

so your top looks like BrockGrimes at the windshield frame? i thought for sure someone modified his (no idea why) if yours is also modified too maybe this was another mold type acme used.. to me it looks to unfinished to be factory but i have been wrong before. does your cut appear factory or home done. i would be curious to see how the draw clasp latches sinch the top to the windshield frame. this is how mine looks



this is a picture of another acme top i have for sale it is the same as all the other acme tops i have seen or owned on my tan top you can see the foam weatherstripping between the top and the frame and on this top it is missing so you can see how different the mold is
