My New YJ PLUS a few questions

Hey all,
Thanks for taking a look at my new 1994 YJ. 72,000 miles, 2.5L, and amazingly, very little rust.

Yesterday, I put the Wrangler decals on the Hood and the Zombie Response team Decals above the JEEP on the side.

Today, I put in a new Windshield to Cowl Seal. Not really that bad to do.
I also installed a Rampage Soft top Carriage, top and Doors.

Here is my question: I am having a bear snapping a few of the snaps over the doors, and the Doors really don't want to seal at the "ziplock" channel on the 1/5 hard doors.

Do I need to let the vinyl stretch out further? Or, did I just get to weak in the 94 degree heat?
LOL, but not really.

Any help would be great.
I am including pics of the progress.

I had the same problem when I got mine. Make sure the window is unzipped all the way, snaps into the channel much easier then. Also make sure to lower the bow behind the seats, this will loosen the top enough to snap the tough ones over the door. I still had to slap down with one hand while applying pressure with my other thumb.

Thanks for the tips. You have the rampage? I like the set up and for 485 bucks for carriage, top and upper doors, what a great deal.
