I feel like your metal has a really nice line there. It appears the plex has a concave indent in the edge, and none of them are perfect, they all have slight variances.

The support shelf for the back of the convertible top when we took the top off several of the studs snapped -…..Just full of surprises

When re-installing the soft top, TAKE CARE not to overtighten the nuts on those lovely new studs. Otherwise, you end up with a ripple across your newly painted panel. Ask me how I know (gutted...) Would also run a die over the threads on these studs before starting the top install, and give each a bit of antisieze before the nuts/washers go on.

I hope so in the process of rebuilding the car we did a lot of chassis stiffening other than the European look it’s a bone stock 2 L I’m going to put a little bit of a performance cam in there and leave the spica injection,which seems to be working very well

3 years ago when started ....I did not anticipate the number of repairs and was a bit concerned, alas the car stays in the family, it reminds me of racing budgets .... there are none!!!
