I've been wondering how you have been doing. Looks good. I could see you would have a few wrinkles in this area, but didn't say anthing until you got there. You can try folding this over and stapling but sometimes it makes a big lump and shows on wire on. I would carefully cut it a little and pull your wrinkles out and staple it good. Some tops just come with slits that aren't sewn. Yes staple all across bow before wire on. Once you get it all buttoned up let it sit out in sun for awhile and it will take a set. Then if you want it to stay that way, don't put it down. Just saying. Tedious work isn't it.
