Hard top dimensions needed

Hi Guys, Having completed a full restoration of a hard top for my Tiger, when fitted it seems to not fit snugly on the rear corners but stands off about 1/2 inch. The rear rail sits close onto the rear deck in the middle with a gap increasing towards the corners. The car deck is original and unmoles...

It seems clear from the old headling reminents that the front of the headlining is pop riveted to a moulded steel section at each side, then this moulding attached to the headling is pop riveted to the hardtop at t...

Clearly they have to be removed from the underside as they hook over the metal gutter moulding at the top. I have a set already removed from a hardtop by some one else but have been wreck...

Generally its in quite reasonable condition with the normal decay problems on the rear rail and corners, all repairable though. However I dont seem to have t...
