i bought a 1997 convertible with a new top just installed. The problem is that the top is about 1 inch short of locking. It looks like it might have been installed improperly. Is there an easy fix to this without taking the entire top off

They are crazy tight when first installed. Park car in HOT SUN for several hours with top up as far as it goes now. At peak of the sun get some help and see if you can latch it, might take three people. The hot sun will help it stretch. Once latched, leave it latched for a week and park it in that hot sun every day so it can stretch.
