360 spider roof

I noticed when I bought my car that the canvas has a couple of marks roughly in the middle of the sides of the roof behind the door windows. I'm told this is a common issue with the 360 folding roof and was the result of the roof needing some adjustment to prevent the canvas from rubbing the side when down.

Has anyone else had this issue and or know how to adjust this to prevent further damage.

Thanks

My Spider has those marks too, a result of folding during normal operation.
The only way I know to prevent it is to not use the top.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

I too have these marks on my top. It is always down when driving and stored in the up position.

Good point Net.
The top does NOT like to be folded down for long periods, it gets very finicky.
I cycle mine nearly every time I drive the Spider.
