Without seeing it all I could tell you is that something in the mechanism is bent/broken or jammed. You'd have to have someone work the top while you inspect it during operation and see where the hold up is.

The roof is fixed.... the nut had come off.... so fixed but I also learnt that YOU MUST put your windows down before putting the roof down and then your rubber edging won't get damaged..... EKKK more repairs on the way.

That would be a top replacement. They aren't too expensive but install is a ***** and a half. You can DIY if you are good with tools but many ppl need a professional to do it. Comes with the territory of owning a convertible this age.

Yea that's a great price. New top, glass, and install runs around $1250-$1300 here. Almost all labor.

First off good deal on the glass, the price you got is suspiciously cheap honestly but go for it. Usually its a whole top which you can buy for not as much as you'd think. Problem is install is expensive unless you DIY.

As for exhausts, Roush is pretty overpriced and they are usually side exhausts for the SN95 cars. There are a ton of other cheaper options out there to be totally honest.

Straight pipes sound like ***. They are loud, that's it. Get on youtube and look up all the different combos. Popular brands are:

-Magnaflow
-Dynomax
-Flowmaster
-Spintech
-Pypes
-Steeda
-MAC

There are more. Get the one that sounds best to YOU.

You've already got straight pipes and that setup looks like crap to be honest. I hope the guy who pulled the car onto the lift almost **** himself when he saw part of the tire hanging off the edge like that.
