Wrinkles in the Soft Top


Recommended Posts

I installed an OEM glass-window top from an 04 Boxster on my 2000. I've been gradually adjusting it for several weeks and I have it just about sorted out. (Many thanks to Boxstaboy and Maurice for their tutorial and responses to my questions.)My last issue is the wrinkles in the top behind the windows. My plastic-window top had the same problem, as do most of the Boxsters I've seen with a top that is more than a few years old. Has anyone been able to address this condition? It seems like the material just stretches over time. Maybe there is some way to tighten the fabric.Overall, I'm very happy with the upgrade. The top fabric seems to have quite a bit of life remaining and the glass window and headliner make the car feel like it has a higher build quality. I had considered buying an aftermarket glass-window top since I would have had brand new material. However, even if I have to replace the fabric in 4 or 5 years, I think the larger window, easier engine access, and headliner are significant benefits of the OEM configuration when compared to an aftermarket product.
