Not saying it needs it. It's just that I know this is one HUGE trouble spot on these cars and needs thorough vetting for just accepting the top as is. The quarter window areas doesn't give me 100% confidence that you still have virgin sheetmetal under the vinyl. But I'm not there. If you're happy, we're all happy for you.

For the cost of a vinyl top, it's cheap insurance to actually know.

Yeah, I totally know what you mean. Maybe once I get further along I’ll decide rip the top off and start fresh. But for now I’ll just rejoice in knowing I can get the original vinyl properly clean. haha
