Sumner - can you move the side curtain brackets lower? There is a
possibility that the curtains are riding too high which will cause an
alignment problem with the door. You don't want to move them too far
as then the bottom edge of the curtain will ride on the pegs. This will
wear a hole in the curtain material (no need to ask how I know that).
You may need to fill the holes in the wood support piece for the
brackets so that new ones will be tight.
Also, it won't do any good to get a different top unless you are having
it made locally to non-original specs.

I bought a new top for my TR3 about 5 years ago from either TRF
or Moss. I
don't recall the brand. I recently had my side curtains rebuilt
by TRF, and
I tried them for the first time last week.
Big problem! I can't latch the doors. The top comes down low
that the fabric hits the inside tops of the side curtains, and
won't shut. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there
anything I can do
about it other then buy another new top? How does the top and
curtains interface? There are flaps sewn into the outside of
the top and it
looks like perhaps the side curtains are supposed to fit into
these flaps to
keep the rain out, but they don't quite fit over the tops of the
curtains -- and in any case I can't shut the doors. Anyone with
