After looking at other pics since I am color blind my wife and I arrived it could be green since pastel green is very light in shadeThat might be a GMAD tag instead of a Fisher Body tag. Now after looking at the codes I was wrong on the color as it looks whit in the pic on my lap top. Seeing the 40T tells me your roof color is Pastel Green. Guessing from over 40 years of sun bleached the color a bit.
I would agree 100% since my wife and I aren’t restoring this car except to get it more presentable and roadworthy going to be best her and I clean up the top as best we can when we clean the car. We have been doing other small projects. Case in point vac lines, high blower fan, seat out to be fixed due to bad drive gears and such top seam from one side to other has come apart from trim or shrunk..lol. We plan to glue it back down and put a nice piece of trim to extend it and be presentableIt's that with certain pigments that have a excessive amount of UV the colors fad & get sun bleached that will cause such effects. It will actually be more of a yellow shade (most likely one of the heavier used tint to make that color) that will make it look tan. 42 years of sun isn't kind to vinyl. As for the original shade of green your roof & trim was, it's a very light shade of green. If you would expose a section that ha been covered since your car was built you would find the original shade of green it was.
Thanks kind of at a standstill till we get first cleaning done and a little repair to see what we actually have looks like someone painted the trim a tan color but under is definitely pastel green40T is confirmed as Pastel Green vinyl top.
As for the vinyl top, I've heard of people using those Mr. Clean Magic Erasers to help remove dirt/stains. No idea, just throwing that out there.
Looked tan to me but code is 40T which is pale green I am toldThat looks white to me. Check out this following link. The image is small but you may be able to enlarge it. If the car is green, likely it is white.
I know someone that owned a few cigarette boats, I will ask about that cleaner in hopes he might know the nameThey sell a marine vinyl cleaner here around the marina, I cant remember the name off hand but works great for tops. Look in your area if you got water sports
So I just noticed this. You have a GP but that is clearly a Buick emblem on the trim in the photo. Something is going on here. Maybe your top has been replaced in the past. My 78 GP doesn't have trim at all, just a piece of bulb seal bonded to the front edge.
