best top bikinitop- how do you install it?

Perhaps a dumb question but how do you install the bikini top on the jeep? I have installed the header, tightened it on. Now what, does the top pop into the gap that looks like the plastic should slide into place or does the plastic lip on the top need to be below the header and then tighten the bolts to hold it down over the lip.
Thanks

no you tighten the header all the way down and there is a lip in front near the windshield it slides in really simple as long as you have the right header with the right top

i believe it is the correct header. Are there easy ways to figure it out?
It all came with the jeep so I just assumed it is the right part.

cool, thanks. That is straightforward. The toughest part for me is the header ends getting the top to fit in there.

they also say that you should install it after the top is warm from the sun.. and there is two types of headers screw in which is just that it screws to the jeep windshield.. the other just bolts to a cutout on the windshield
