My Convertible Top Frame Bent?

ok i never worried about it assuming its not fixable.

it goes up an down with no problems at all..top has a few minor rips in it some all the way through some not.

but where the side windows an 1/4 windows are sposed to go to the weather stripping..mine dont has a decent sized gap on both side.

is there a way to fix this? and how can i prevent it from doing it again

Check your frame hinge joints on the top frame to see that they all have the rivets in them. One of them broke out of one of the joints on mine and caused a gap problem since the framework wasn't moving properly. Also, make sure the joints are lubed with the proper lubricant.
