I installed new padding, trimmed it, then stretched the material over it then fastened through the top material and padding. I then trimmed the top material. Hopefully the attached pictures will help.
As far as the drip rail goes, I do have it but it is in 2 pieces an is not very straight. I’ve tried to straighten it as much as I can but it’s still crooked. I would prefer to install a new one and would like suggestions as to where to get it.
Thank you for all the replies. Sounds like I made a mistake when I installed the padding. I wrapped the “squishy” material over the edge. Now I’m wondering what I should do without starting over with an new piece of roof material? Now that I’ve trimmed the excess material I don’t have enough extra to grab onto while stretching.
Hi Peter, thanks for your reply and any information you can share after you look at your car.
I was able to find correct modern day top material. A member here (Joe Malone) put me in contact with Eric Haartz at the Haartz Corp. to get the correct style material.
The tacks used are standard size, they look like they have a large head diameter due to them pushing in on the top material.
I am missing the windshield visor.
