The MGA With An Attitude
TOP FOLDING TECH -- TT-104-4 - (pg 4 of 6)

Fourth move is to raise the window bag out of the way and fold the steel frame and drop the entire assembly in under the steel tonneau behind the seats. Push on the metal elbows at the sides to push it back as far as possible under the tonneau. It will then be sitting with the steel framework arched over the top of the spare tire, and all of the fabric hanging down in front of the spare tire, and with the plastic windows mostly covered by other fabric. Note that the top frame does not go back here as far as it once did when the car was new. This is because the spare tire is one size larger than original, and that obstructs full rearward motion of the top frame as originally designed.
