I may show my ignorance here but I have a question. Have you just not gotten around to trimming the selvage off of the curtain above the rear bow? I assume that is excess material that will be trimmed. Also, I assume you ended up with similar excess below the trim stick that will be trimmed off. Am I correct in the mental image aimhave of the process?

I just haven't trimmed it. That is another thing that I need to get tough about, I HATE trimming these things for fear that I will need to move it. It already happened once where I trimmed the top pad then had to reposition it and barely made it, after I had trimmed a FOOT off, it killed me.

As far as at the trim stick, I haven't seen anything about that but thought about it too.

How long is it going to be until you can get on with the things you WANT to do Mike?

I can understand your caution. If the rest of the job goes as well, you are going to be tickled to death though.

Are you happy now? I had a full day with some other things so this and doing some marking on the top and installing the side cables was all I got done.

yepper, I'm happy. Actually I usually am. I have never been satisfied with the top I had installed on the roadster. It is the only part of the interior I did not do myself. If you can do this as well as I think you can Brian. I may order a new top for mine. I have followed your thread in the interior forum with great interest and appreciate getting to read Dan's advice and answers to your questions. This is one of my favorite threads and I enjoy hearing what all the guys are getting done but I have a selfish interest in your top. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the positive comments guys.
Nice to see you're moving forward Brian.

I made up a new piece for the passenger side.
I got it cut out, welded in and started on the driver's side.

Who knows ...I only get a little taste of it every once in a while ,just enough to keep me going and working hard..You have no idea how bad I want to drive that old car around every day as my DD,its so close I cant stand it,its even insured ..I've even lowerd my expectations and dont care about the paint anymore black epoxy is good enough ...the short trips I drive it are great but I'm scared someone will hit me so I need to get the sheet metal done so I can mount the lights but first theres the rear fender that needs widening.. then some basic wiring...at least theres no snow here so I can drive it whenever it gets done its a little hot to drive without A/C anyways,one more thing to add to the list.Man, it just never ends...

Thanks John.

I got the new piece welded in on the driver side and got the two rearward pieces tacked in place.

Wahoo! I thought I wouldn't get this far after the total screw up I had.

I head back home tomorrow.
