Does it look like they used enough tab material? Sounds like they are not long enough to lock under the chrome strip...

I have no idea..it has tabs..I installed it correctly..but it looks silly..I don't like that curled look..it just looks like something that is a universal fit..and we all know..a universal fit..never fits anything all that well..I already tossed it in the trash..I'll have one made that fits properly..*LOL*

Thats too bad teebone. It sounds like it is just plain too small.
I hope you get a nice one made that fits good.

Not good news. I have mine all the way on with the pads and the edges still sit up, although they aren't curled. However, the effort to get it on means it won't get used very much. Let me know what the custom shop says; I may end up going the same route.

if it was a tight pair of blue jeans you would wet them down and stretch them. Maybe you can soak the the boot down, put your cars top down and pile some towels on the the convertible top then put the boot over top of that and let it sit out in the sun to dry out. The towels might give the boot the extra stretch that after it drys it will have a bit of extra slack.

Teebone:
Please let me know what you come up with for a boot for your vert as I need one too!!! If you find a good one, let me know, as if it's custom made, they can make two if it's good quality and reasonably priced!!!!
