    I will bet one ice cold beverage to be served at Celina that the problem
    with Tommys top frame is it was repaired WRONG the first time. The front
    header bow is at wrong angle. I'll bet that cold beverage is that in its
    past it cracked like most do then welded together incorrectly. Another
    spot is that pivot point over rear window. Hugh has sheet with the easy
    to do repair. A slight bend in side bar is not some back woods repair.
    If you need to bend inches out then it is clear that the frame is
    wacked. I think this might be a good repair for newsletter. Most cars
    suffer from some form of this. The reality is the frames are of poor
    quality almost made as an after thought. The tops shrink and then the
    frames get bent and broken by forcing them to lock in up position. Later
