    Working on this puzzle...does it appear than I am missing any major components? Or is there an exploded view of this mess that is available? I have no idea what bolts go where, etc...

    I am replacing the cylinders, hoses, and pump...so they are not pictured.

    You're welcome, Adam. It looks like it's mostly all there. You need the latches, there's a long retainer channel for the 1st bow I don't see, and all the bushings, wave washers, bolts, and the special adjustable frame link bolts.

    make sure the tack strips are in good condition before you install on the car.

    I found the retainer channel in the pile of trim. I also have a coffee can of bolts and bushings and washers...also bought a pivot bolt set. Hopefully that will put me in good shape.
