I sent the seats to the upholsterer for new foam and installing the new vinyl covers. The side metal I had rechromed and used all new pivot bolts and stops.

The outer and inner stainless steel windshield frame was repolished and the inner mirror stand rechromes, all came out like new.

Hey Dean, spotting your thread here, and on that top install, did you do it or have it done?? and are you aware of any special tool used to install the rubber strip under the back bow, that rides on the lid???

I have to do my own install, and it came out poorly, but better than the POS that was on the '72, but my largest issue is that rear black gasket/weatherstrip in the back bow, I can't get it in the groove/slot worth a damn.....tried and cried.....

I had a shop install the top, I supplied all the parts including replacement tack strips and seals.It is 2 man job at times.
