    I've got a leak at my a-pillars after I had a new top installed. Seems on the passenger side, the top do not fully meet the a-pillar at the top and leaves about 1/4 inch or more gap. Noticeable inside and outside. How can I adjust the top/frame forward on that side closer to the a-pillar for a better seal. I've also replaced the front convertible top seal ($300 ouch!). Helped a little but it needs mechanical adjustment.

    TIA!
