Default Going Topless

So after some frustration, I decided it was time for new canvas on the car. The origional top was faded, dryied out and started to tear. So I ordered a new OEM soft-top since I'm still a long way from getting a hardtop.

Here are some pics from the 6 hour task...

The new top: (special thanks to a friend that works the parts counter at Honda for the good deal )

Had to remove all the seals and drill out all the rivets that hold the canvas to the frame:

Gutted the trunk to have access to the rain gutters and bolts that hold the rear section of the top:

Skinned the old top off the frame:

Top completley removed:

and finally after some riviting, bolting, testing, and adjusting, the new top is on and working
