    2 quick questions as I'm installing a KEES top that came with my car.
    1. How much tension is on the hold down cables/springs? Currently the spring eye is about 1/4" from the post it goes over.
    2. How thick are the pads? The pads currently have 1/2" very soft foam and a layer of cotton batting. I'm thinking of adding or replacing the foam as the pads don't appear to offer very much 'support' to the outside of the top.

    After some experimentation I've settled on new 1/2" foam in the pads, and the cables (from the convertible guys) measure 30" eye to eye.
