[Healeys] I really need some pictures.

Well.... After studying a dozen good pictures, it is clear that the top 
in the Boras Motor website  ( 
http://healeyspecialists.com/making-a-complete-new-interior-for-a-bn1/ ) 
is not the Robins top that we get from Moss. The Boras header wrap is 
sans the secondary flap and it seems might be more prone to allow water 
to enter. Again the pictures just aren't conclusive. I had it done 
(almost) as the pixs Dave Nock sent, then decided to try the Boras 
method and it requires folding the flap back on top of itself in a way 
that just doesn't seem logical, given the Brits love of simplicity.. 
back to the drawing board.
