Speaking of T-tops, on mine the holes in the trim where the t-tops hook up to the center of the roof are "stretched out" and don't really fit very tight.  Is there any way to fix this issue or can I just replace the trim? Or would I have to relace the entire t-top?  They are the silver mirrored tops.

Kinda thought so. :'(  If you come up with any good ideas on how to fix it, let me know.  Mine aren't REAL bad but the finish is gone in some spots where to weather stripping touches.

Thats why I cant see the pic of them  ;D. I do have a set of driver quality gold tops I may part with. They have some wear where they meet the seals but not too many scratches. I can supply pics if any interest.
