Ragtops Teto Solar, Brazillian Britax style sliding ragtop kits
Britax is back! Well, sort of. Our newest product offering faithfully mimics the original series-one Britax sliding ragtop kit. The frame kit includes front and rear pieces, a pair of side rails, four cast aluminum corners and all the internal bracing and hardware necessary to complete the install. It's huge! Our most popular finished size (outer material measured when closed and latched) is a 3-fold top that measures approximately 38" wide by 50" front to back or 101cm x 125cm.
Britax style Beetle Sunroofs are available in both two fold and three fold.
Comes in standard classic black high grade convertible top vinyl or choose from a variety of canvas and vinyl colors. Headliner panels are pre-installed and are off-white vinyl.
Last but not least, we carry a classic flip-up acrylic wind deflector to complete the look.

Over all the quality of this kit is nice, the rear studs on the back of where the ragtop canvas attached to the frame came lose, and one of the corners of the rail was missing.
The instructions are poorly translated and leave out critical details . Same as the videos.
I had to rely on the online vw community to get it installed .

I’ve a 1973 Standard Beetle restoration mod in process.
This is not a numbers matching car, but it’s sound.
I buy parts and supplies as I find them.
Seeing that the Britax aftermarket ragtop kit is highly regarded, and strong, I wanted to procure one (or a replica) when I had the opportunity.
I’m not ready to install it yet, but I have thoroughly inspected the Legacy Products kit I received.
It arrived as I expected it to be.
There are minor scratches and machining variations that previous reviewers have noted, but the parts seem correct.
I got the kit in about a month, imported from Brazil, and in the midst of the COVID19 pandemic.
That’s pretty good!
During the course of the month, I spoke with Legacy Products a couple of times, and they were courteous and helpful.
There are no printed instructions per se, but there are dozens of installation videos (YouTube) on the internet.
FWIW, there are some original Britax instructions around if you search well, but they are pretty vague.
The Brazilian manufacturer, Britax Teto Solar, has an extensive FaceBook gallery to give you multi-angle views of installed ragtops.
Many of the videos feature a Brazilian guy who looks a little like Ricky Fowler.
Watch his videos closely as he knows the installation well...
There are also numerous posts and pics on The Samba.
These include many installation experiences.
If you can’t use what’s available to figure out the install, you probably don’t need to be cutting a hole in your Beetle’s roof.
It appears you need to be prepared to adapt things to fit your goal.
I’m highly satisfied and now have the option of a ragtop if I decide I want one in the future.
With all of the above in mind, I feel the Legacy Products kit is worth the price.
