Re: Any chance??? 71-76 Scissor top
the scissor top canvas install is not really that hard.
where it usually goes wrong on a scissortop car is not making sure the frame works correctly. sloppy bushings and second bow ball joints, poorly sync'd drive actuators, correct torsion bar adjustment, broken or missing third bow glide strip, frayed and/or broken side tension cables...
following the GM manual and heeding various tips from those who have actually installed a scissor top will help you get great results.
and when operating the top, it works waaaaay better if the car is running. the extra voltage gives much better power to the motor.
the only trimming of material you do is on the front bow and the rear trimstick below the body line. everything else is made to "fit" as long as the frame is within the specs outlined in the GM manual.
there might be newer/better info in a 1975 manual than the 71-74 manuals. i have never compared them. my manual is for 1974.
