And then you can die of heat exhaustion! Actually, I installed my 6 top
in the house under air.

I have to agree with Joe B. I installed my Midget top here in the desert in
the summer and got it nice and tight...and in the winter it took two of us
to latch it shut. When I do the TR4 and the Midget replacement, I'll opt for
a cool day or do it in the garage. I'd rather have it slightly sag on hot
days than be too tight the rest of the year.
Joe B, Joe C...reminds me of the Juarez Fireman joke...he had twin sons and
names one Jose, and of course the other was named.........Hose B.

As he stared at her ample bosom, he daydreamed of the dual Stromberg
carburetors in his vintage Triumph, highly functional yet pleasingly formed,
perched prominently on top of the intake manifold, aching for experienced
hands, the small knurled caps of the oil dampeners begging to be inspected and
described in chapter seven of the shop manual.
