Keeping hard top air tight
I have a 94 jeep wrangler and the hard top is a little beat up. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how to get the top really tight. I'm looking for a good way to seal the top near the windshield so I don't have to hear the sound of air coming through while driving on the highway

It's about $23 from Quadratec. You may be able to find something better or cheaper or fab something, but this is a good starting place. Good luck!

My trick.... Take a bicycle tire inner tube, cut the valve stem with a vertical snip on either side. Next slice the inner tube horizontally all the way through making a taco. Set the taco tube across the windshield frame, install the top, fasten.

X2 bath tub and tile clear. Comes out white dries clear. Not to bad to remove at all.

I used really thick door frame foam for your house's front door. Got a whole roll for a couple bucks, works great. Stuck it on the underside of the hard top, automatically comes off when I remove the top.

+1 on the weather stripping to the hard top.. works great.

There must be a vinyl tube/hose you can find that will squeeze between the windshield and the top.
