1963-1967 Convertible Top Mounting Reinforcement Plate

There are several ways to repair a stripped hole in the soft top mounting bracket.  One way is to use a heli-coil, the other would be to remove the bracket by cutting 12 loose and then removing the plate.  Once the plate is removed you can then weld a new nut in place.

Drilling the hole larger is not an option because the larger bolt will limit your adjustment of the soft top frame.
