Soft Top Fitment Problems

I have an Ap1 S2000. I bought a stayfast, glass rear window top from convertibletopguys. I am replacing a vinyl top with a glass window.
I have almost finished the top, but I have few fitment problems.

1. When the top goes up, the Velcro come out of the third bow.

2. 4th bow has created a ledge.

3. Drivers side edge looks wrong. It appears to sit to high, but the passenger side looks right.

If anyone needs to see another section of the top or from a different angle I can post more pictures. I am so close to finishing this job, but I want it to on right.

Ughhh! This job is somewhere on the horizon for me, and I am not looking forward to it.
I've heard a new top will need to stretch a bit after a few hours or days of it being on, so that may solve your problems, hopefully. The bars seem to be in the right place, so I'm at a loss.

I hope everyone had a relaxing Labor Day!

I know it has to stretch, but I think the top is misaligned. I may have installed something wrong. The bars are close to being the right place, but the 4th one is sitting too far forward.

I need to fine tune/adjust the top, but I am not sure how. Has anyone else run into these kind of problems?

Is there anyone near North Carolina, particularly Charlotte, who can help?
