86' HONDA CITY CABRIOLET
In 1989, I got this cabriolet second hand (It's 1986 model). I left it at my parent's house for about 10 years and got it back in 2007 when I bought land and house. This is a record of repairs and modifications since that time.
41. Soft top replace
I tried to replace the soft top that I had been thinking for many years. While referring to the service manual, remove the soft top cloth from the back and replace the rear windshield assembly first... At this point, there are wrinkles around the rear window glass.
Remove the soft top that you have been using, put a new soft top cloth on roof, and temporarily fix it from the back side. The rubber of the band that pulls up the rear glass is stretched, so stuff it by hand sewing and reattach it.
The wires on both sides are threaded through using a metal rod for cleaning a wind instrument, the front side was fix with Penguin-cement (can be firmly glued), and the various parts were replaced to complete the installation !!
I closed the hood while feeling anticipation and anxiety... There is tension on the whole, wrinkles around the rear window glass are eliminated, and the overall finish is good! I am very happy! ️
This work was very difficult, because there were many first-time things and processes that could not be redone. Therefore, the joy of completion was very great!!a
