Thumbs up This part of the puzzle may be closed...

Hey, TS...Thank You too. Pretty much what I thought and who knows why mine are the way they are. Mysteries would be unknown if it had never been hit and pretty much disassembled. I'll set them right by your observation. That will take care of the twisted strap too.

You are one of the masters. When you publish your guide to Solstice care and mods, I want a signed copy!

On to how much damage is done to the tulip flap.

My experience has been if the top is cycling properly and the fabric is tight, then moving the window to conform to the top solves this problem. Its very easy and quick. But you appear to have concerns about this approach so please let us know how you address this issue. :-)

Just saw the PM you sent me Richard and replied but looks as though TS has you on the right path. If your top rubs where I show in the post over at KP, the procedure there is the one performed at the factory that built the cars. They I trust would know what they are doing. If it rubs at the top then you would need to adjust the window. Either way the adjustment is a simple one.
