Sorry--been out the past few days enjoying the weather, not checking replies. I did bend the frames, which helped a little, but didn't solve the issue. Ended up messing with the grommets and that was the ticket.
Thanks for all the help! And InfernoGirl--we're all Jeep Girls at heart. Never had a friend who didn't end up loving zipping around town with the doors off and top down. Just might take them a while to learn a hat can be a girl's best friend!
