How to align the roof with the clam shell?

For most top repair video, I found that they are missing a point. How to align the roof with the clam shell? They look like working harmoniously. I assume the alignment is important for a successful top fix.

One more thing, my roof is in manual operation now. It looks like very flexible. How many bolts should I reconnect to make it in electric mode?

Starter, were you born cruel or did you hone your cruelness through practice and experience?

Been a long time since Iíve been ĎRick Rolledí.

Cruelness? $6.99 a bottle at the grocery store. Right next to the vinegar. I buy it in bulk.
