Top soft parts assembly order
I'm finally getting to the folding top on a '69 convertible this year. I'll start with the motor & cylinder work, but after that I'd like some opinions on the best order to approach installing the "soft" parts. I assume the convertible top weatherstripping needs to be installed before the final frame adjustment, in order to get the window adjusted correctly during the process. Is there any part of the top weatherstripping that can't be installed until after the top fabric is in place? I'm not in a financial position that would allow me to purchase the top and pay somebody to install it at the moment, but I'd like to get moving on the rest of the top assembly and adjustments.
