Had the top on my 2007 vert replaced under a Ford TSB. As with most dealers, the actual replacement work was contracted out to a speciality store...When I got the car back and put the top down for the first time the top material covering the front panel (the material behind the rear seat that is exposed when the top is down) was lose and fluttered in the wind...even at low speed. Has anyone had a top replaced and suffered this problem...I know that this did not happen prior to the work nor did it happen on my 05 GT (whichha d a vinyl top)...Any thoughts?
