Targa Top

Are there any suggestions on how to install a new targa top on a 1989 hatchback? I do not want to force it to fit for fear it will crack the first time I drive it. I can get one bolt to go in on the front or back, but I would have to bend the top to get the others in. Thank you for any helpful hints!

There are two size mounting plates that install on the windshield. Your top should just fall into place. Sounds like you'll have to buy the other plates.

I have a hard top that would not fit just like yours and I had to rework the plates to make the mounting holes where the plate secures to the windshield larger so I could move the plate around left to right, right to left, so both of my tops now fit.
