Quadratec soft top

I just installed a new soft top from quadratec, khaki silver. The factory hardware was garbage on this jeep, got it used from car-max. Compared to the soft top that came on this jeep the hardware seems like quality fasteners and the soft top is a more pliable material. The one dislike is the rear window mount. For some reason Best top riveted the rail to the two end mounts so I used the OEM rear window rail with the 2 plactic mounts. No more leaks when it rains and I am waiting for the first North Carolina heat to help settle the material. Will post pics later.

The other change I did was add red loctite to all of the permanent fastners, to prevent them from backing out from vibrations. Once I completely installed the soft top I noticed that 2 latches that latch on to the rails were pressing really hard against the material so I ground those down some and it fits better.
