I'm thinking the fillers are a little pad of some sort that get lost after the first top is replaced. On the measurement stick, how in the heck do you set the bow height? This measurement stick is all I have found to measure where that rear bow goes. But now that I think about it, it is measuring it to the top it's self. With the adjustments I have done to the top at the windows (along with the windows) THAT has changed the location of that rear bow to the body. So if that rear bow height is so critical, how the heck do I set it?
