My guess maybe right?!!!!!!!

I tried everything i can for the top, greased everywhere yes the top folds and unfolds smooth, but it still doesn't come together like it should. My guess is the frame is damaged. The right side sits heavenly on the roll bar(b pillar if you would) and the rubber is in a bow. The J hook doesnt meet up with the a pillar on the right side. To close the left side, I have to do a slight pull and the j hooks work fine and closes. Any idea how much it will cost to replace the frame? Where can i get one? Can anyone help me?


someone put the top down and didnt know how to put it back up and so ladies and gentlemen this is where I am.

The only frames at the yards I see are iffy... but they run 50-100

Could having one failed strut do this? Maybe by putting uneven forces on the top? Might be worth disconnecting both struts temporarily to see if things improve. If not it does kinda sound like the top got tweaked.
