I was looking over my soft top yesterday and one of the bars that connect on the side is bent just after the manufactured bend... I have on my hard top now... if the ben is not too much is it going to cause a problem when I put it on in the spring? and second how hard is it going to be to bend it back into place... I dont know if I want to attempt it yet. Any suggestions or (constructive)comments are welcome.
Sometimes you have to be forced to leave to understand what you really want.
Most of the time, when you try to bend them back, they break. Prolly from the Korean steel they use. I would look on Craigs list or a wrecking yard for an old frame or at least a partial that has what you need.

Its only bent a little, i mean, its prolly a inch over or so, maybe two, would that cause problems? Like I said, I have never had the soft top on, only owned it since Sept 09.
Might cause some problems. Depends on how picky you are, I guess. Try it and see. Then try to straighten it. Then, worse case scenario, is a new part. But you'll get it working. Soft tops rule. I'm ready to put mine back on.
