    I have a 71 also, however I have never done anything other than hold the power down button. Maybe I've been dropping the top wrong for 33 yrs.:Do No: I'm sure I have all the lit somewhere packed away.

    Just picked up a '71 GS 350 basket case - Burnished Cinnamon, Sandalwood top, white interior, #'s matching. Nicely optioned - one of seven '71 verts with Comfort-Flo. Someone else's unfinished business - Resto started & nothing else done since the late 80's. They started putting in a trunk & pass floor (all wrong) & cut the quarters back too far. Will be an epic sheetmetal job.

    Currently looking for a parting out 70-72 vert with rusted lower portion of the quarters that I could just get the top "vert only" part so I have something to splice a hardtop quarter to. PM me if you have or know of.

    I wish it would let me upload a larger pic. The reducer makes the pic quality awful
