Completely lost on soft top hardware

Ok im new to wranglers so this will be my first time putting the soft top up. Ok now ive searched and could not find anything on how to put on the soft top hardware, everything i found was how to raise and lower the soft top. If anyone could post a link that would help me out i would greatly appreciate it.

Only hardware I can think of that needs to be bolted on is the L&R hinge brackets. the go under the roll bar cover next to your seatbelt.
undo the zipper and look for two bolts. Brackets are marked L & R.

The rear window channel clips on as does the header bar over the windshiled.

Windshield first, rear window next, side windows last.

if you have a sunrider top make sure the latches above your side windows (above the roll bar) are clipped in before clamping widshield bar down.

Good luck, it will get easier after a few times.

No, the bracket sticks through the padding

I doubt it is exactly the same but I'd take that help anyhow. Some experience with soft tops is better than none.
