|Erecting the Top|
Erecting the top is relatively straight forward although do not think that because it is permantly attached to the body it is similar to a BJ7 or BJ8. In fact its probably more fiddly to erect than an Abingdon car. If you think its going to rain and don`t like getting wet then put the top up before you leave home!
The recommended method is
- first attach the top to the windscreen with the two clamps making sure it is properly hooked under the lip.
- Then fasten several or all of the rear Tenex press studs to the rear shroud. If the top is a tight fit, as it should be, the studs are easier to fasten before the frame is erected.
- Erect the frame ensuring that the spreaders are fully extended. This is a bit like opening an umbrella but can be quite tricky if they are stiff. It definitely helps to have two people, one on each side to ensure the spreaders open properly.
- The frame should be fully forward in the slides and then tilts backwards slightly. The hooks are pushed into the securing rubber blocks.
