Light showing thru my soft-top

Ok...I have a new 2013 Wrangler 2d that I bought about a month ago. I have had the soft top down about three times, one of which was yesterday. After I put the top back up I noticed light coming thru the stitching. The light was noticeable right around the sound bar area on either side. Is this normal? Thanks

Take it to the dealer and request a new top under warranty. If not you will need to seal with a silicone and then a fabric waterproof liquid. I would bring it back then after receiving a new top would seal the new one ! I waterproofed mine first week it was on. I used a liquid called fabsil. But any water repellant would work

No, it is not normal. If you see light your soft top, it will probably leak water when it rains. Take it in to the dealer and tell them to make it right.
