Supertop NX foam strip placement

Did most of my Supertop NX twill install yesterday and got stumped by a stupid foam strip.

Section 14 - page 20 of their new guide: http://www.bestop.com/installation_guides/54722.pdf

The long strip of foam looks like it sits on the fabric at the edge of the header unless I am missing something. Thoughts or input?

Just trying to double check on placement.

Waiting for the weather to warm up a touch this morning so I can get the header latched in place and then install the windows.

By the way the new instruction sheets that Bestop published on the installation rock - they actually make sense now.

Whatever they gave you in the kit, go to home depot and buy a roll of more weather stripping. That stuff flattens out over time and you will get leaks. Apply more weather stripping to the problem area and you're good to go again. Don't get discouraged that you might not have done it "right" the first time, eventually it will compress. I keep a roll in the back all the time now.
