it's not the same material. one is cloth based one is plastic based..

in addition the vinyl tops are not glued down completely, they have edging and trimming to hold them in place.

the hood wrap is glued end to end, tearing it off is nearly impossible, and if you do attempt top rip it off, its take a major amount of muscle to do it and it will tear off in bits and pieces long before the entire sheet comes up.
