Most are made of fiberglass.
Fiberglass cracks with age, not structurally, but it gets hairline
crackes which are not easy to repair.
Look for all the mounting hardware.
Do a test fit. I have a hardtop for a MKIV Sprite which is 1" too
Somehow it shrunk. I had to cut it and fill in exactly one inch in
Maybe it was a defect from day one. Maybe it was an original Moss hard
top! It fits fine now but nobody ever could expain the reason why it was
