TOP FOLDING TECH -- TT-104 - (pg 1 of 6)

TT-104 is a crash course in how to fold and stow your rag top for ease, efficiency, and reduction of wear and tear. It's all particularly simple, so start right here.

Rag top droop-fold
The droop-fold

Start with undoing all the fasteners and unhooking the steel bar at the back, but leave the top frame in the upright position. Pull all the foldable frame bows together in one tight bundle, but while you are doing that, pull the fabric up and out from in between the frame bows so that the fabric does not get pinched in the mechanism. Then take the big loose fold of fabric and lay it down over the front of the frame as shown in the picture. Note that the rear window is still hanging behind the frame.
