Default Convertible top glueing to front bows

I had a new top made a couple of years ago. The top material seemed a little short and was glued on one strip inside the front bows. It's now separating at the glued strip. I did a search earlier today and found a thread where ( I) was asking and had several replies that were spot on. The thread had Step by step instructions and ERA had a reply with colored pictures and diagrams. Right on just what I wanted. I cannot find that again to save my butt. I'm going to have a local shop help take care of the top and bow situation. I need to show them something. The thread was dated I think 2001 a while ago I know.

Yes, Thank you, That is exactly what I couldn't bring back up. I copied everything. My new Top was made by an outfit in West Seatle. They apparently do not do Cobra replicas very often. I had the EM hardware in a box. They only glued the top material to the inside of the front bow. I'm sure once glued as ERA described , I will not have another problem with the top.

I think I now know part of the search was spell check said convertible not convertabl,e.

From my other post, if you go to all of YOUR post and scroll to the known timeframes, you will find it regardless of the word used or the spelling/misspelling of your advaced search.
