C4 convertible hardtops were offered in 1989 and can be fitted on convertibles from 1986 through 1996 Corvettes. The 1986 through 1988 Corvettes may require a hardtop mounting retrofit kit to adapt them to accept hardtops. Now, I'm not sure if the retrofit kit attaches to the hardtop, or the car. If you just got this hard top, it might have the retrofit kit which will need to be removed before it will work on your car. If you are having installation issues, or things just don't seem to bolt up right, I would look into that. I wish I had pictures, but I think it's a straight forward install assuming the parts are right. Hope this helps, give me more info if you can. Vert Hardtop Removal/Installation: Park on level surface Trans in Park or 1st/Reverse gear Parking Brake ON Windows fully lowered Radio OFF (to lower antenna) IGN OFF Use an assistant Remove/Disconnect Stowage compartment lid cover rear defogger electrical connectors Front holddown screws using OEM ratchet Rear mounting bolts using OEM wrench "B" pillar bracket bolts (5 each side) Hardtop from vehicle Install/Connect Align rear mounting bracket sleeve with #5 bow release latches Align front holdown plates with front holddown brackets Pull #5 bow release handle to allow mounting bracket sleeve to fully seat Start rear mounting bracket bolts by hand Front holdown bolts using OEM wrench Vertical bolts at "B" pillar brackets Tighten rear mounting bolts using OEM wrench Tighten front holddown screws using OEM ratchet Do not overtighten bolts Rear defogger ELE CON Stoage compartement lid cover

Straight out of the install manual sounds to me and who could argue with that? Great answer Nosmo glad to have you around, there isn't enough compliments on this site , I'll start it, great job>,

I have the optional hard top for my 87 and 89 convertible. It's great. Very easy to install and remove when your out in the sun.
