The MGA With An Attitude
CONVERTIBLE TOP TECH -- TT-103-15 - (pg 15 of 30)

Turn the new fabric top upside down and insert the steel strap into the pocket at the rear edge of the fabric. Here you see it about in the correct finished location, but still lying partly outside of the pocket. Push it all the way in, and then pull it back somewhat inside of the pocket until it is back to this same location. At that time it should be centered in the new top fabric, and the only part of the steel strap still visible would be in the two short places with the clearance notch in the fabric. The ends of the steel strap will then be covered with several layers of fabric for secure reinforcement.
