Just go to youtube and put it in the search box. remember, 61-61-63 will be the same , or very very close, same top. And most sites that sale convertible tops, they have instructions on their site. I would go youtube, so you can watch it over and over. It's easy to install the top, take your time, make sure everything is even, don't cut shit until you are sure it is ready to cut. Once you cut, you cannot put it back together. A lot of upholstery places install tops reasonable. Good Luck


They make them and they are 650 -m 750 all the same. I would stick with the original ones, 50 each and just replace all 8 if you think they are bad. Why do you feel they are all bad. That would be rare for all of them to go out. You might troubleshoot the limit switches too. The system is simple. look at it like the back half, and the front half, trunk lid flapper and screw downs, the front is the top and the front flap plate. There are 4 cylenders and one pump. Make sure the pump is working first. There are sites on line to walk you through everything.
