About Hood & Frames

One of the more popular types of convertible designs on older vehicles is the soft top Volvohood and frame. In this type of vehicle, the hood, which is usually made of some type of fabric, is attached to the hood frame. As with most vehicle parts, the mechanical parts of the frame and the fabric of the hood tend to wear and tear. The hood, because it is made of fabric is also relatively easy to damage.

In the event that either the hood frame or the hood itself is damaged and requires replacement there are two possibilities. One or other of the individual components can be replaced, although, whilst this is the less expensive option, it will mean that one part of the convertible roof assembly will be much older than the other. A better alternative might be to invest in a complete Volvohood and frame replacement kit. This has the advantage of creating an entirely new roof assembly, both parts of which are likely to survive for some time into the future.

VolvoHood and frame kits are relatively inexpensive and are easily accessed through one of the many motor component retailers and a Volvonew hood and frame can transform the appearance of an aging convertible.
