Stress Reliever while installing new top on BJ8-smashing the Christmas lights

Thanks to whomever puts the Christmas light to smash with the mouse at the top of the screen. We are in the middle of installing a new top on our BJ8. Numerous post declare this is a very trying job (which we are verifying), so the ability to smash the lights is a great substitute for throwing tools, cursing, stopping the installation and starting to drink beer while looking at the wrinkles, etc.

Again thanks!

I don't know whether you already have it, but I have a procedure for installing the top on a BJ8 that might reduce your frustration. It has embedded photographs and is too big to attach here.

Steve,

Maybe you could ask John Sims to host it on his site?

Rick, it's already there in the technical/body section. I may need to update it, though. I've made some revisions and added some photographs.
