Post Rossa soft top
Anybody got a drawing of how the soft top is fitted. I got an unused top with my car and a set of handwritten instructions, numerous bits of metal and GRP..plus the top!
Just about there but it doesn't seem to fold away like the Spyder hood did... any ideas.
Also got a tonneau cover so that was an extra - all ready to go when the weather improves
Should have said its for the Mk2 and apparently it was one of only 5 made before the first supplier to GTM folded.

Phil.

This is what mine looked like from the underside and no, it is nothing like the K3 one.

Cheers
That's a puzzle for tomorrow then
That seems to make sense although I also have a GRP piece that the instructions suggest it goes over somewhere on the top possible towards the centre of the roof.
Time will tell

I have now taken over this puzzle having bought this car from Phil.

I am struggling to see how the frame fits together and it is different to the one pictured by Jaycee.
The scribbled instructions Phil mention assume the frame is assembled already and it clearly has been in the past but has been dismantled for storage. The brackets for it have been fitted in the tub of the car and there are no hooks for the latches among the parts giventome by Phil so they may be on the car screen hidden by the hard top.

Photo attached of the frame as I have put together at the moment - no idea if it is right!

I was going to post a scan of the scribbled notes but they are too big as an attachment here so I will duplicate this on the FB page and link there.
One this it does say is that this was one of the first five hoods produced, the company went bust and they switched to a different supplier.

Anybody got any ideas, any pics of a similar frame?
