A tonneau is a great asset to any Bugeye, particularly since most Sprites are fair weather cars and a well-fit tonneau will keep a brief shower out of your cockpit if your car is parked outside when precip passes through. Tonneaus also keep dust, leaves (and bird droppings!) out of your nice car when it’s parked. I recommend one for every Bugeye.
These short tonneaus have traditionally been hard to find. If you have a row of studs along your back cockpit edge, you will need a short tonneau. Most Bugeyes are fit with a long tonneau that attaches to the top fasteners in the back. Click here to check out our Long Tonneau offerings. Custom colors are also available, we’ve fit about 100 different tonneaus! Custom, contrasting thread colors are available for an additional $25, available on the drop down menu. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details or to specify custom colors for your order. Note: all tonneaus must be custom fit to your car. They are sold with the necessary fasteners and you will need to locate and attach them to your new tonneau. We offer high-quality tonneaus that will last for many years! These are custom made to order.
Short tonneaus are hard to fit. Even when installed by an experienced installer, everything has to be just right, or you end up with wrinkles everywhere. Your best chance for a great result is to demand a tonneau made with ever flex material. This is what we recommend, so that you have the greatest likelihood of an extraordinary result that you will be proud to display. They cost more, but the material is superior and stretches just enough that you can fit your tonneau on cold days, when ordinary less expensive vinyl tonneaus would be impossible to stretch onto your car. These are the tonneaus we use on all the restorations we do in our shop. If you need a short tonneau, ours is the one to get!
These tonneaus are more supple and a little stretchier, therefore making fitting easier than other tonneaus made with a less expensive vinyl.

Note: all tonneaus must be custom fit to your car. They are sold with the necessary fasteners and you will need to locate and attach them to your new tonneau.
