Soft Top Virgin No More

Had a bikini the first two weeks of owning this but it is still deep winter in northern AZ. When you see you breath with the heat on full blast...it's bad..

My Rampage stock-style frame bars came in the mail and I easily installed it.

I already had a great tan Bestop soft top. Installation was simple, instructions were clear: 1 HOUR.

The last step of Bestop was hood snaps: 1.5 HOURS FOR 10 SNAPS!!!!
At the end it got to be a Jedi thing. Close your eyes, bunch up the fabric, pull gently, see them snapping...

Now I know. Had no complaint or question. Just sharing my morning...Now to see how carwash-proof this rig is...

Much trouble these snaps are.
Easier they will become.
Cold it is out, harder it makes it.
Fabric it will stretch.

Fixed my wiper motor the other day and had to undo the soft top snaps. They're just flapping around now...can't even try to snap 'em back till April at least!

Cute poem----it will not take me 1.5 hours ever again. By the 9th and 10th snap I had it down!!

I know you guys recommend 72 degrees in the literature, all God gave me was a lovely no-cloud 65...but it got done!

All you need is a warm day of sunshine and yr back in business.
I had my first day of full sun in what seems like 20 days...(very rare in AZ..)
