Same here. I've been fighting my top since getting it back.... I wish it looked/fit like yours.

Universeman and I are both in Austin and have been sharing our Targa top woes. Will take a look at my clips and see how they look.

It's been quite a frustrating process to-date.

Is this fixed by having a tighter-fitting top vinyl or does it need something else? will a new top vinyl offer some improvement at all?

From looking at it it doesn't seem like there is anything besides the tension of the vinyl to pull it down tight and straight so i'm ready to spend the $200 on a top cover but not ready to spend $3000 to have it completely rebuilt.
Check Dans Website. Full rebuild is $1400. If you need new seals or something is broken that would be extra. Well worth the price.

If you want to go it alone, you can read lots of threads here to see if you want to proceed. This is an interesting one:
