How old is the top?
What shape is it in?

Yes as matter of fact, I have the Luck o'the Irish...everything I touch turns to fertilizer of the bovine variety.

Well in the pictures I see little nicks on the edged of the door at the hinge points.
This means that the top is "shrinking" and that it will pull up a tad.

Now you can create new side cables, and that isn't probably a bad idea, but your top is going to need replacing.

There is a Thread on here on how I create new side cables. The length is 37 1/4 to no more than 37 1/2 loop to loop, I strongly suggest yo use the flat brass chain as it increases the life of the cables.
