    Leather Seat Repair?

    Convertible Body Flex

    I've got a 70 Roadrunner convertible 4spd car with old-school frame connectors (tie the front/rear rails together, not the US Car Tool ones). The car is twisting quite a bit and I can tell this because along the top of the rear quarter panels in the corners of the body where the trunk lid...
