I am not 100% happy with the way my top looks..it has a few wrinkles after it has been down a while and they don't seem to want to come out..can I have this thing refitted or restretched or whatever it is they do to them..the top is new and I would hate to have to buy a new one for a few wrinkles.. my friend that performs most of my resto work is a great craftsman..but I think tops are not exactly his forte..

My top is very tight and it always has a few creases after it's been down awhile. Mine go away after a good set.

When you put the top up, whether power or manual, you should have to push it down the last 1/4 inch or so to get the latches to hook on. Then when you close the latch, it pulls the top tight and the wrinkles pull out. If your top is coming right down into the latch position, the top isn't pulled tight enough on the frame and will need to be adjusted by a good trim shop.
