Hardtop fit

Hi all, just acquired a hard top and it doesn't quite sit flush at the top of the windscreen, there is a slight gap. How can I adjust this? I have tried playing about with the clips but no avail. TIA

Do you have side latches?

Is it sat on the frankenstein bolts at the back properly?
Yep, I've seemingly done a full adjustment all round to all latches and bolts. It's snug as big everywhere apart from that little bit in the middle of the windscreen.
Seen a few like that. The latches do need adjusting a bit so they pull outwards and flatten the raised middle bit, won't be perfect but will improve
Yeah, I adjusted the striker plates above the screen, just need to adjust the clips on the actual hardtop. 3 day weekend will give me time to fully play.
I got someone to press the middle down while I adjusted it and latched it, that helped too.
Managed to get it sorted. A bit of rubber tubing in the seal and a couple of washers under the striker plates (along with some standard adjusting) and all is now well.
