The top material is vinyl and stretchable...when warm!
The CLOSED top needs to sit under the hot sun which will allow it to stretch into correct fit. After one summer, the top will fit like a glove.
If the installer fitted it loose when new, in a year, it would fit like a blanket on a pig.
Convert tops should NEVER be raised or lowered in temperatures lower than 70 F. which allows the fabric enough elasticity to bend and fold without stress.
This is what caused the piping to crack, Next would be the fabric behind the back window where the most severe fold happens.

Thanks for the info re: temp about raising and lowering the roof. The original roof fit perfectly. It was the replacement, which was loose and hasn't really tightened up, as per the original fit.
#90 of 90 Fading black convertable top

I had just bought a 2012 Mustang convertable last August. The top has faded and has water spots all over it which I can't get them out regardless of what I use. I called the dealership several times and they have not gotten back to me. Any idea what I should use to get these waterspots off my top?
