The '71 B I just acquired has a pretty decent quality vinyl top in good
condition. Two problems:
problem #1: It hasn't been latched (at the header or at the "lift-the-dot"
fasteners at the rear) in several years and seems to have shrunk. This
morning, I pulled several muscles I never knew I had latching it. Is there
a fix for this? I thought that latching it properly and then leaving it in
the sun for a couple of days might help, but at this point I'm skeptical.
Problem #2: the top is "textured" and even after several thourough (sp?)
washings, with the usual car washing soap, there is still dirt/gook/slime
holding fast in the "valleys" created by the texture. Anyone have good luck
with specific cleaners?
Thanks in advance.
