  • if money grew on trees, you could just roll it in to any upholstery shop and they'd stitch you a nice new one. But it would be at least $1200 and if you went with a nice chestnut canvas color OOOOHHHHH boy
    lookin mighty fine there Bill...just keep track of your hours/time so you can put a value on it so when I come in to a large sum of cash I can make you an offer you cannot refuse

    • Thanks again guys.

      Here's some shots of the seals I put on, along with a before shot for comparison. The first one was where the top meets the top of the windshield area,

      I also added 2 pieces that weren't there before, there was a big gap where the top meets the windshield vertically. I circled the seal strips I put there, one on each side. There's a shot of the top not latched, then latched.

        • I haven't done much work on the car lately, I've been driving it a lot, it's been running great.

          I thought I had a differential leak but it turned out to be from the hydraulic top pump in the trunk. The fill plug had popped out at some point, and leaked some fluid through the pump screw holes, down onto the ABS sensor on the diff.

          • I finally replaced the rear shock mounts today.

            It still had the 93/94 shock actuators on the original shocks.

            I kept the original shocks, but I didn't put the actuators back on.

            Here's a pic of the mounts and actuators.

            No more clunking.

            • I put the convertible away for the Winter. I've still got some work to do on it, but that will be next season.

              I did manage to put 2,982 miles on it this year, you can see the before and after photo below. That's not the actual original miles though, as the cluster was changed at some point before I bought it.

              I also learned where not to put my finger when I unlatch the top.

                      Just a few 200 mile camping trips.
