Ok, here's the story. I took my soft top apart because it was sagging and I was going to straighten out the side bars. Well I straightened them out but while I had it apart my father used my garage to work on his car. After I was ready to put the top back together I couldn't find the bolts. So I know what they're called, *** bolts :rolaugh: but I need the sizes. They're the bolts at the back of the side bars that they pivot on. I think I'm the ONLY owner that's lost these. :smirk: It's a 1994 top by the way.

I might be able to look at mine (also a '94) on Monday... if nobody chimes in.

First I clamped them to a steel I-beam (small one) and let them sit for a couple weeks. That had NO affect. I then took the entire assembly and put it in the oven at about 150 degrees for 20 minutes. (Baste regularly) That completely fixed them. The heat is the key.

And just kidding about the basting thing.
