Charlie, where is that located?

I once moved a power top over to a what was originally a manual top '65.  I 
sure don't recall ever seeing anything like that.  The top often stayed down 
for weeks at a time and worked every time I pushed the under dash (up-down) 
button and never had a battery drain problem on that car.

Later, JR
