does anyone have a photo of a dash fro m a 51 convertible that shows the top switch and where it is located? We have the top operating but you have to lean under the dash right know to operate the cam by hand.

Hello,

I have some pictures. If you want to see more pics, just let me know. The convertible top switch is the broken ivory button you can see on this picture.

The rod for the switch is straight. I can't take new pictures right now, because the car is parked elsewhere. I have an older picture and I hope it helps you.
