GAHH occasionally needs local vehicles for test fitting of new products we are developing.
Our free convertible top and interior pattern program is offered for the specific vehicle models, and only vehicles which the car owner will deliver to our North Hollywood, California facility and leave with us for 3 to 7 days.
We typically require up to one week to perform multiple fit tests as we fine tune the fit and appearance of new products. Occasionally however, it may take a little more time depending on the complexity of the new product we are developing.
For your vehicle to be eligible it must have a straight body (no collision damage or dents) and a properly operating convertible top frame. The paint must be complete (no primer or signs of body repair), it must not have had any significant accidents (collisions), no aftermarket roll bar, and must be in good working condition. Proof of ownership is required.
We will need to test drive your convertible, and may (if not installed in our building) take it to a local automotive trim shop (within 7 miles of our plant) to perform test installations.
In return we will give the car owner a new convertible top or interior product in their choice of material and color, which will be installed on when they arrive to pick it up.
All cars we use for product development are parked indoors while in our care and fully insured up to $250,000.
Sorry, we currently are not in need of any vehicles for patterning.
