Question Gettting Soaked!

hey guys havin a problem with my top and am wondering if you guys had an idea on how to fix it. whenever it rains and if i roll down my window i get totally soaked cause my top seems to funnel the water right into my drivers window. looks like the plastic peices that are sewn on the top above the doors are bent. can i just heat these things up and straighten them out? or would buying vent visors be a quick easy fix? any help would be appreciated

I don't know how to tell you how to fix it, but I wouldn't think vent visors would help the situation. It sound's like it is coming in between the door and the frame and vent visors won't do anything for that. They would just keep it from coming in the window if it was down. You might be able to take a couple of pics and get some better help. I would also suggest trying to compare the passenger side with the drivers and see if you can find a difference of how something is going together.

pics could help determine how messed up the plastic parts are.

okay hopefully this pic link works, where im pointing at is where the low spot is on the top that causing the waterfall of water when i roll my window down. it comes off the top follows the contour of the door and right in on my leg! i didnt know if i put on vent visors if that would kinda aim it away from me or not

I didn't know that it only did it when you rolled down the window! I must have overlooked that, yeah vent visors would probably help out that problem. Here's another suggestion, don't roll down your window in the rain!!!

Personally I welcome the extra internal rain. It is the only time my ride gets a bath
