In what order should I have my new Convertible top installed on my 72 convertible?

Should I have the top installed before any of the body work is done?
Or should I have the body done and in primer then have it installed?
I am pretty sure that I should not wait and install it after the body and paint are completed.

The same goes for the windshield replacement.

Any words of wisdom are appreciated.

I would wait on the top until after the paint job. The windshield I would remove it before painting and reinstall after painting. Nate

The only concern with installing it after the paint is done is that the paint may get scratched.

I will have the new installed after the body, and paint. Thanks guys.

It's good to be back at Chevelle Tech!

Good to hear from a local!
I live out by Oakview Mall/Lake Zorinsky.

I have been trying to find a good shop here locally, and have not gotten far. I will have to check them out.

Do you have any recommendations on a good body shop that will do more than collision work here in Omaha?
