Whatever you do, don't try to force it to shut without relieving spring pressures first. You can use a screw driver to release spring pressure, which should allow it to shut. Ultimately, you need new ...

There aren't cheap ragtop projects out there on the web these days anymore. Hell, they want over $1000 for the clips.

Those are real sharp mats. I just use shopping bags glued together, shape it, press it, cut it, mark it VW -- throw away when it gets too bad then make make new ones.

Sounds amazing. Got pictures ...
