Targa Restoration II -- Inevitable Issues
OK folks -- now the outer skin and the headliner are off, and clips and block nuts need attention. I ahve been corresponding with Dan Pechtel, who is probably the master targa top restorer around, and he is very skeptical whether I can do this in any way but half-assed. I need new M3.5 screws; a few clips, as three were destroyed when I got them off the first time; and now, Dan tells me, some webbing. Ouch. This is getting more difficult than first anticipated. My initial impulse is to plow ahead no matter what the obstacles. We'll see how it turns out in due course.
