    The top seam is supposed to line up with the seam in the filler panel

    If it was a factory vinyl top car there is a hole and steel plate that goes in the seam and then bolts thru the deck panel, where ever that hole is is where the seam goes

    Other than yours, there is only one other paint code 41 in the 1971 Stage 1 Registry. Yours still shows Phillip as the owner. You might want to contact Marco and ask him to change it.

    Alain, Looking Great!

    I’ll be curious to know how many hours you’ve spent on this restoration. And in record time too. And like you, that color is just....

    Keep it up, you’re on the home stretch now!
