Peugeot hoods made of original Sonnenland fabric
Sonnenland canvas is the most commonly used fabric for Peugeot hoods. The topping material has a three-ply structure and we believe it is the highest quality on the market.
The top layer is made of synthetic material. The rubber layer below this provides the material with the required strength and primarily ensures that water does not penetrate. For this reason, waterproofing is not absolutely necessary.
The lower layer, depending on the design of the Sonnenland material, is also made of synthetic material or cotton. We make all Peugeot hoods, such as the Peugeot 205, Peugeot 306 or even older models such as Peugeot 204/304 and Peugeot 504 using the appropriate materials.
Whether waterproofing is appropriate or not depends on various factors. The material itself is 100% waterproof. However, in cases where the cabriolet is frequently parked outside, you should consider waterproofing. This ensures that dirty rainwater runs off and prevents it from collecting in the fabric fibers.
In addition to black, you can choose from many different colors.
Alternative material: Peugeot hoods made of PVC material
As a lower-cost alternative, we supply PVC or vinyl material, which was available as the original convertible top for some cabrios. We make the 205, 504 and 204/304 hoods in PVC material. The 306 top is only available in fabric.
We advise against using PVC, however, as the quality has continued to decline over time and the PVC material is almost never used any more as original material for convertible tops.
Manufacturers are no longer investing in the further development of PVC, and many of the plasticizers, which were used previously, are no longer permitted. The new PVC composition means that the material is significantly stiffer and harder and becomes brittle and cracked much quicker.
The color selection is very limited compared to the Sonnenland canvas. Most customers opt for the black version if they decide to purchase a vinyl hood.
All available Peugeot tops
The 306 and 205 convertible roofs are our bestsellers, but the tops for the 504 and the 204/304 are also ordered frequently.
In addition, we offer all accessories and all spare parts for all model years for these convertibles: Headliners, upholstery, boot covers, windows or rear window panes (as replacement panes), tensioning cables, and wind deflectors.
The supporting/retaining bars of the car are always reused.
Installation of the hoods
Besides our production building, we also have our own trim shop where we can install the convertible top on your vehicle.
Please ask us about a price for the installation for your car. For the duration of the installation, we can provide you with a replacement vehicle free of charge.
If we can't find a suitable date for your convertible, we can still help.
We supply our convertible roofs to trim shops, specialist companies and car dealers around the world. This means that we can recommend an installation partner for any make of vehicle. We’d like to hear from you.
