    I have a 94' GT, and as of late, the Latch pins for the top don't line up perfectly anymore. I tried the adjustment cam bolts, but they didn't help much at all. They seem to need to come forward an additional 1/4 - 1/2 inch more. I can manually get it close enough to latch, but just seems to be a lot more effort than it was in the past.

    I do keep the top down most of the time, so I'm wondering if that is causing it.

    Ive known about a dozen guys with convertibles and none of them lined themselves up. You put it up and push it forward to get it in the pin holes. Maybe try leaving it up in the sun for a few days, see if it stretches out any.

    Thanks. It truly isn't a huge deal since it's not up all that often. I just found it odd that all of the sudden it just didn't line up right.
