so I loosened the bows on one side and only cut from the bow loop the amount of the red body color showing for the bow and then moved to the other side. and did the same... then pulled the fabric down to the door lip. Jim Cheatham was gracious enough to cut the door surround trim and windshield headliner trim piece. so i need to make a trip south to pick those up this week. I still need to get the binder clips too finish the stretch. no reason to push this let nature and heat relax the fabric.
