I just purchased my dream 1958 corvette in nov. 2001 . I also have a 78. My 58 has a 20 yr. old restoration on it and hasn't been driven much more than a couple of thousand miles since then. The softtop looks just like brand new. The only problem is that it shrank. If I try and put it up it puts so much strain on the windshield pillars that I am afraid of damage. I was wondering if anyone knows it there is a way to strech these tops. Please let me know if you have any advice. or email me firstname.lastname@example.org.
