Does anyone know how to adjust the left rear portion of the driver's side T-top so that it will fit relatively flush with the body on a 1975 model? My passenger side top fits very well but the driver's side angles upward from the center to the outside edge just enough that it bugs me.

Thanks Bob. It looks like item #3 in the picture is possibly needing adjustment on mine.

FLUSH??????  I have a '78 with glass tops.  I never liked that they did not fit flush, but then I saw other '78's and those did not fit flush either.  I agree, a flush fit would look so much better.  Can glass tops on a '78 be adusted to fit flush?

Unfortunately, no. The glass tops sit about a 1/4 inch higher than the body by design. My fiberglass tops are pretty good on the passenger side, just the driver's side that is a bit higher at the outside. I made a few adjustments last night and it's better; just not as good as the passenger side.

I noticed the same thing on my 75, rear of driver side top sitting high. Pushing down lined it up without much pressure. Turned out to be a missing latch adjustment bolt. You can get them for $4-$5 with the rubber cap. Adjust these if necessary. Good luck
