To put the top down on your '87; first reach between the seats, just under the edge of the hatch that will eventually cover the top. You'll find a lever that swings toward the driver side door. On mine, I have to click it twice to release both sides of the top. Then above each of the visors, there is a lever you must pull all the way over. This releases the pins on the front of the top. Now, on the end of each door, you'll see a small switch with an arrow on it. Click the switch and this releases the hatch. Now, standing outside, lift the back of the top so you can open the hatch. The hatch will remain in the up position. Then put the rear of the top back into the original position. Lift the front, toward the rear of the car, and your top will fold into place. Gently close the cover and you are topless!

Connect the positive cable to the positive battery post on the donor car and on the Corvette. Connect the negative cable to some metal part of each vehicle, such as the engine. Be careful of the fan blades on each car. Let the donor car run for approximately 15 minutes to put a slight charge in the battery on the Corvette before you attempt to start it. Start the Corvette and as soon as it starts disconnect the battery cables.
