Midget Top - Rear Window needs help

Hello everyone. Every now and then I get to put the top down when the weather is cooperating and I noticed I have something rubbing the rear window of my top when its folded up and in the down position. I started putting some cushion above and below the window area since I cant figure out what is putting the impression in the plastic. Is there anything I can do to remove the impression thats in the plastic window? It is very noticeable and almost looks like whatever was pushing in this area that if it was left like that long enough it would have pushed through the plastic.

Thats a tough one! I had a similar problem with my MGB for years. Only thing I found was the more tense the top when open, and the more exposed to the sun, the softer it got..................but it never really went away. I also found no major source for the impression. Wonder if its just a 'torque strain' on the plastic from the fold?
