people use to do this all the time to do "phantom tops" but it was not regular material-------it has to be water resistant or repellant or you will end up rusting the car undr the material--------try checking out places where they sell material for boat upolstery-----good luck--peace

the biggest problem bro is how well will the material that you are talking about will stand up to the elements.......rain, snown hail and the sun is what usually will rip,tear or cause material to disinigrate-----so it might not last toolong on the car bro--------i would do this try wetting a little piece and leaving it out in the sun---or try washing and drying a piece ---if it fades in the first wash it will not stand up to the elements------peace

well its a white material so I doubt it would fade but it may get weak from the elements, I wonder if you could weather treat it somehow?
