  1. I've made a replacement cord/rope from a black shoestring and a piece of elastic cord from my surf board in the middle - works fine! Thanx for the technical help!
  2. I can see very clearly that the cord/rope has to go over the soft top frame. Thanx. On the 987 model there is a sleeve of channel on the bottom of the outer roof skin where the cord/rope is going through. I think the tension on the cord/rope must be zero to none when the soft top is up. And the cord/rope must stretch and give tension when you put the soft top down in order to make it fold inwards. Am I correct?
  3. I have a Porsche Boxster 2005 (type 987) with a "strange" color. The car is a silver/grey with a little green in it - called "W57 Happy Day - Metallic" (door sticker, see photo). The VIN# says L999 color code. The car was build in 2005 for the Porsche company itself for some kind of special occasion/anniversary. It was used by Porsche gmbh until it was sold in late 2007 for the first time. I've contacted the dealer network in the Netherlands for more info about the color (because the W57 code isn't found in the database) and the occasion/anniversary this Porsche Boxster was build for. Not a
  4. The elastic cord/rope within the soft top which runs from left to right is broken. The cord is connected on both sides of the soft top frame with a screw. The screws are located on the soft top frame at the place where the roof folds above the headrests. Not a big problem to fix the broken cord/rope, but how is the cord/rope supposed to run exactly? 1. Is it going - starting from the screw - under or over the metal frame bar of the soft top? 2. Is it going through the the fabric tunnel in the outer skin to the other side? Many thanks in advance for helping... I have a Porsche Boxster
