I’ve noticed recently that after going roof down that when I go to raise/ close it I have a problem getting it to the windscreen latches . It’s almost as if it has shrunk?
Anyone else had this and to add its intermittent.?

Also depends on the ambient temperature.
My mohair one can be a right pig to latch when it's hot weather.
Just a question of jiggling it a bit when its almost fully up to help the catches engage - one side seems more compliant than the other but could just be latch adjustment.
