    When you chopped the bows of the top are you able to put down the top? I really like how you built your Roadster
    I am starting on one now doing a little homework on the Top process. Any info would be great. Thanks George

    Thanks, my top is missing the scissor folding side irons. Still folds, just a little wonky. It had been that was since at least the ‘70s and since I was reusing the canvas, I just went with it.
