So I got the header and mesh bikini from Bestop the other day. I decided to go with the bestop mesh bikini instead of the spiderweb shade because I like the idea of having a header, so the bikini is secured more tightly then the spiderweb shade's bungee cords.
Anyways, I tried installing it yesterday and had a hell of a time. I have a 2 door with door surrounds and did exactly as the instructions said. Heres my issue: if the bikini is for 2007+ models, the instructions should have mentioned "WILL NOT FIT ON 2010+ MODEL DOOR SURROUNDS".
A warning would have been nice, before I spent 3 hours in the hot sun trying to jam the damn bikini into my door surround until it broke. Yes, thats right, following the bestop instructions completely broke one of my door surrounds
I called up bestop and they informed me that I have to take the door surrounds OFF if I have a 2010+ model. NOW THEY TELL ME? They didn't even care that I broke my door surround because of their instructions.
Now I'm left with a mesh bikini thats stretched out so much it doesnt even sit straight (because I spent so much time stretching it trying to get it to fit on the door surround) and a broken door surround.
So where's my review?
I don't have one, since the bikini doesn't sit right because I tried so hard to follow the instructions it stretched itself out.
And thanks for not giving a damn when I called.
On a side note, I still admit the material is a lot better then than the spiderweb shade
(which looks like a tarp). The mesh is the perfect size to let the sun in but the heat out
, and had I been informed how to install it before I destroyed it, I think I would be a happy camper!
Would I buy this product again?
Yes, if I had 2007-2009 door surrounds.
Would I still use this product without the door surrounds?
Yes, I would like to if I hadn't stretched it out so much it just draped over my head now.
Am I disappointed Bestop didn't seem to care when I called?
