On the deck lid for my 72 convertible there was one stand off that bolts to the deck on the right side. When I looked in the aim it looks as though there should be one on each side of the decks bottom. it also shows that a rubber bumper should thread into each one. What is this for and where can I get these at? I didnt see them at any vendor. Rodney

Don't quote me on this, but I think the purpose of the bumpers is to keep the soft top from bouncing up against the deck lid. Seems like I had seen those listed somewhere....have you tried Paragon? OR maybe Larry at Corvette Specialties? He's been hit pretty hard by the economy, and I'm sure would appreciate the business...

Ya, Larry. Thats who I was trying to think of in the post about parts for a "T" top !!
Maybe I can find a DEATH'S HEAD MOTH there also!! lol
I was going to call Larry today anyway, He helped me with some other hard to find parts last month. Great guy. I didnt know there purpose so I was looking for that as well. I would guess that you are correct Joel. I thought they had to have something to do with the top since nothing else was there. Hopefully Larry will have a set of them with bumpers. Rodney
