Did not have much time to work on it this weekend (too many projects) But I did manage to get the brackets on and the front weather stripping in. Took a little bit to find all the hardware, I did find clips to use on the window moldings.

Okay, After three hours... The rear glass is in. No, my wife did not help me with this, I did not want to risk breaking this glass since it has the original Triplex logo in it.

Well... There she is with the new lid. We even had time to take her out for a spin and show off her new wears. Thanks to everybody for their help, especially to Dan for the photos, without them I would have been lost... Thanks
