Hi Guys! :bigeye:
I did it. I follow mikefocke's link to remove the top frame.
I lost a lot of time on the 4 tiny F** screws... stuck and very difficult to access and removed. I bought a small power torque screwdriver, put W40, and was very patient to remove them slowly... You dont want to break the head f the screw. :banged:
Then I understand why people don't reinstall them... and I did not. They are useless anyway.
After removed the top, I inspected and cleaned, then I installed my "new" used $28 foam parts ( $28 each on eBay plus shipping), I think it was a good deal, here some photos, you will see some findings...
Some rust here, I restore this part... remove rust, treat and paint.
FYI, how it look like under the foam, foam again.. I clean here, but really not to much to do... except check the evacuation entrance is clean and not broken.
After, better, no? :-)
I installed everything and put double face tape at the same original spot to make sure that the foam will not move and stick again the metal part. (not on these photos)
I found that too, at the bottom, behind the circular cover behind the seat:
And restore both sides (Passenger side was more affected). As it s a bit part with the point of attachment (at the rear) I am not to worry about that. It is look like horrible, but it was more superficial. Here after:
As I re-adjusted everything, my top is close better because tension is well adjusted from the right and left now.
I should test it now :-) Next rain...
Thank you for your help!
