Well after 20 years or so I finally sent my car out to have the metal work finished and they just painted it!f  I'll have some pics soon but wondered if anyone had good pics on how the vinyl top terminates at the drip rails and pillar areas.  They are going to install this weekend and they aren't a Mopar shop.  Thanks!  Matt

I don't think it could be really a big difference between a Mopar and some other brands on that specific deal.

There is or was a good article about the vinyl top installation on a 2nd gen Charger I think at HotRod magazine? It was called HORSESKINNING or something like that, but I dunno if is still available. Hotrod magazine website doesn't open in Europe and I'm im Spain at this moment... not at least on that kind of old articles.

Hi Leon!  Yeah everything looks pretty good so far!  They still need to wet sand and buff, I'll let you know when it's home!  Matt
