Karmann Ghia - Convertible Top Installation - Part 4 - Outer Canvas

It been a long time since the last video on the install (September 2012 to be exact). The top arrived from TMI by way of HOG and this video shows the installation of the canvas top onto the headlined and padded frame. I will have one more video in this series showing the finishing touches and adding all the necessary seals around the windows.

The rear window latch wouldn't clear, so I had to do some investigation into the problem. While I was in there, I tightend up the headliner. Boiling water was the answer to getting the canvas to stretch.
