Arrow Road trip in the morning: Supertop help please!

I just installed this yesterday and I can't figure out this part. Do these sides tuck in? I can't figure it out. The door does not seal like it should. Thoughts?

This is what it looks like with the door closed:



Door open:



I am driving to Long Island tomorrow and don't want issues lol.

You need to tuck those edges into the channel. The ends will be pointing towards the rear of the jeep when they are tucked in. Hard for me to explain but the edge of the top you see in the pics will be against the door surround when you get them tucked in the channel.

I just passed a guy on the highway having the same problem.

It's very common, and yep--it means you're doing it wrong.

Here's my standard answer. Post back with any questions.

4) zip the rest of the window.
5) pop in the lower edging of the window into the channel along the upper edge of the jeep. This is very much like what was done in step 3.
6) fix the Velcro.
7) admire own handiwork.

Window will be very tight. Nothing flaps in the breeze.
