As this thread has been resurected, and I noticed the comment:
"If the 7 years compilation of a 350 page manuel doesn't intimidate you then you just haven't tried this yourself yet."
Just a clarification.
The time spent was documenting down to the #8-32 screw type/head/finish (and similar minutae) on the numerous differences in early 65, 65-66, late 66-67, late 67, and 68 top frames for the concours types... so don't confuse the master doc with a "top install". Chalk and cheese....
Installing the top is tricky, but for the handy DIY-er who is willing to take it on, look at the process, plan it out, and invest in the time to do it (a weekend) the top/rear curtain install is not beyond the skills of the handy/patient/capable.
"Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so."
