Installing Vert Top in Colorado in winter or waiting until summer?
Happy New Years,
When I run out of ideas or options go to the forums. Need some help deciding what to do next. I just finished rebuilding my front end and can't decide what to do next. My 69 has no top so I don't want to look like an idiot driving a convertible in winter in CO to get the alignment done so I have two options on what to work on next. One being the top. The other is replacing the whole wire harness. I have listed below all the electrical issues I have and what ones work and don't work. Since it's January and warm weather is still months away I know I have time to do both before then. One question I thought up and don't know if it's a factor is the temperature in my garage. Its not heated. Should I install my new top now or wait until the weather warms up? I'm installing a vinyl top and one lesson I learned while doing my seats was the the warmer the vinyl the easier it was to work with. Will installing the top in cold weather affect the tightness of the top? Will the top get lose in warmer temperate? If you install the top in warm weather does it gets tighter in cold weather? Will it get too tight that it rips? Is it better to have it lose in the summer knowing that most of the time is will be down anyways? Even if I had a top the heater does not work. What to do what to do?
