New top for my 70

We picked up the 70 this morning. I'm very pleased with the work done by Herman auto tops, St. Louis. My old top had severe wrinkles on both sides and puckered material around the back glass. He used better padding than what I had from the original restoration top also. It was only three years old but the back glass had fell out twice and I never was happy with it, even before the window failures. Tops is all they do at Herman's and I'm convinced that they know what they are doing and they do good work. I also had my leaky cylinders replaced along with new lines and fluid. It was all very reasonably priced.

Re: New top for my 70

Looks like a very good job. The place in Cincinnati that installed mine made several mistakes in the alignment of the top. It looked ok but, it could have been better.
