I am looking for the convertible top frame or pictures of one that can be used to build one...

Few of us are looking for the same thing. The answer that is most commonly given is that the set up uses anchor points and arches that are essentially made just like a boat bimini top and that boat shops have the parts necessary. It seems like that is what Classis Roadsters used as it was commonly available.
I see this is your first post, welcome and where are you from?

I'm in New Jersey and yes, this is my first time. I originally was going to get an AC Cobra, but quickly found out just how expensive they have become. I found my Sebring and in my opinion, it's a better car... it has roll up windows for one, easy to find drive line parts for two, and it costs a whole lot less for three...I could really use some good photos of the framework.. the leading edge where it attaches to the windshield is the mystery part I'm looking to see.

I am also looking for more information on the soft top. The unfinished kit I purchased has the vinyl top and hardware pieces but not the bows. I would also like to see some photos of the bows and windshield attachment. Some dimensions and tracings of the bows would be extremely helpful. Anyone out there that can help?

The windshield attachment is quite literally two button snaps on the inside of the A-pillars, and a long slender flat rod of plastic that goes across the width of the top (inside a pouch in the top fabric). This slides into a groove at the top of the windshield frame. When the top gets snapped to the back deck lid, it pulls it tight, and the flat rod gets wedged against the windshield. Not the sturdiest design.

If you have photos that can show what you have explained, it would help me a lot
