Very easy. An it's nice having the converted bikini top. The only problem I have found with it is that at highway speeds when it converted the two layers that are held together by Velcro in the very rear tend to flap apart. I've fixed that by using two of those black paper clamp things. Doesn't fall apart now

Yes you do. Thats what holds the front of the windows on. And the front of the roof hooks onto that also. You need everything that you would use for a normal soft top

That looks sweet! I saw someone do this a little while ago on here. I've been wanting to do it. But have no idea what colors to do it. I have the spice interior. And white outside with black accents:/ i don't think it's colorful enough to do that.

Black and tan might look good? I also did the speaker covers, defrost cover, console top, center bezel, and am contemplating doing the airbag cover.

Hmm maybe! It will be a lot of contemplating. What did you use to paint it? And does it feel tacky at all when your arms on it or after the suns been on it?

Krylon fusion. Get a sandpaper sponge and some 70% isopropyl alcohol, give everything a good rub down with it. Take a wet papertowel over it, let it dry. Then paint away. All of this is fairly recent, and it takes about 2 or so weeks to fully adhere, so idk about tacky-ness. I just finished my driver's side door about 2 minutes ago.

what about black upper and lower with a white stripe? put a good coating of the krylon clear uv protectant over the top and you'll be good to go. its not tacky at all.

what year is your Jeep ?
I'm looking at the "console" with 2 cup holder, on my 98 TJ I have only 1 cup holder. I'm wondering if the one you have will fit.
