Bestop replace a top fit issue

Hello All

I have a 98 tj and recently replaced my top with a RAT , it seems there is too much material between the seam that runs across the header and where the top screws to the header itself . After drivging for a few miles extra material will pull out from under the header causing the top to get very loose.

Anyone else have this issus and if so what did you do to correct

Thanks Pat

There was a post on here about a month ago with same issue. I don't know if he posted the outcome. Go back about 8 pages and see.

It ain't easy being cheesy:

Post a pic of how your new top is installed. Does it look just like the old one, the way you installed it?
