Default Re: Soonercruiser's PURPLE PASSION

So, now, all the warts on the Convertible are taken care of.

The last was, the retention rails coming loose around the rear window, allowing the headliner to sag down, obstructing your rear mirror view.

I still had most of the rails, but had to construct the top section out of a small "L" shaped aluminum strip I got at the hardware store.
It was a week long+ process, since I felt that the headliner was pretty tight and I needed a good strong bond of the retention rails.

So, I had to use JB Weld Pro, which takes 4-6 hours to fully set.
I did it a section at a time: first the rails themselves. Then using 3 vice grips I had, to hold the liner edges in place while the JB Weld set over night.

Thus about and 8-9 day process.
Not something I ever want to repeat.
