The Great Top Swap

10 June, 9am.

Removing Jazz car top and putting it into spares. The fabric is in terrible shape but it has a lot of useful parts.

Removing Punisher top. Its used but has spent most of its life inside and has been treated with kid gloves so it is in very good condition.

Installing former Punisher top on Jazz car so she will have a good top that is both mechanically and cosmetically outstanding.

Installing new top on Punisher. The wife said she wanted the shelf space in the basement storage room so the top has to go!

Should be a fun time.

Looking for strong arms to help out.

Plan is to also install the oil pressure sending unit on the Minion car. Drilled and tapped a banjo bolt for the oil feed line to the turbo. When that works, we will be doing the same to the Dragon.

Are you gonna make a video of the rag top related work so we can all learn from it and/or use it for future reference ?
