Thank you for that information! The frame is good....just converting hardtop to a convertible frame which are hard as hell to locate.
At a decent price I might add however, I am finding out that the frames are probably easier to find than the straps.
There is a difference in the frames beside the two additional cross-members riveted to the frame.
The metal that the frame is stamped out of was thicker and the "C" channel that formed the frame was deeper and taller for added strength. A standard frame on a convertible risks the car folding in two when you open the door because there is no roof to act like a cathedral vault to keep the two halves from meeting in the middle.
