We did a spring tour and got fried running without a top.
I have a set of top irons.
They seem to be missing the front corners hardware that attaches the top to the windshield stanchions
I need some good pictures to see how they are attached to the top.

I have to figure out my 26 touring top as well. It would be nice to see how you do your's.

Robert,
Have you bought the material yet?
I have just started looking.
I am going to get the hardware and bows set before the top purchase.

I would like to be able to roll the back section up and have it secured down with some Murphy fasteners.

I talked to a guy this weekend and he has the top secured to the body with the Murphy fasteners. This way the top can be removed for trailering.
Lots of options.

All I have are the top bows and wood. I have some other issues to work out as well before I drive it so it may be a while before I do the top. I'd love to see how yours comes out. Are you going with black or tan?

Robert,
That is a question that I will have to ask my wife. It is her car. I just get the pleasure of working on and driving it.

Currently the seat upholstery is white. The seats need to be redone. So it is all has to look good together.
I'm just the mechanic/driver.
