hi guys
I am getting ready to install a new soft top on my 406 and wonder if anyone here has done it before and could shed a little light on the best way to attach the front section to the windshield. I have not taken the old top off yet, but before I did, I wanted to have some idea of how to attach the front to the metal parts that secure it to the front windshield.

I have done a soft top on my 404, but this looks completely different

thanks
Lou

well I went and tried to install the top and it is pretty easy if you have a second set of hands. the front is attached by using a strong contact cement on the leading lip of the canvas and the part of the metal structure that attaches to the windshield. there are some internal flaps on the canvas that are also then glued to the bars of the metal frame behind the roll bar. all in all a pretty easy job.
