The 1969 Fisher Body Service Manual has a 52-page section on convertible tops - don't think you'll find the information anywhere else. It's available from most of the resto parts houses.

I personnaly would let a professional put the top on, unless you've done it before.

I travel to Snowy Buffalo often on business. Drop me a line and maybe we cane get together to compare Camaro notes. I have a 69 convertible also

Yes, it does, but I wouldn't recommend doing it "at home" - requires unique skills, materials, and tools that are generally only found in automotive trim shops that specialize in convertible tops. This job is not for the faint of heart, and is very easy to screw up.

I did mine. It's not that big of a deal and looks good too. Saved $600. Just follow the instruction and it can be done at home.
