I have a hardtop on my Jeep. It's the only top I have, but I want to enjoy the open air more than I already do. Here's my dilemma, I live in the middle of the Mojave Desert and it's TOO HOT to take the hardtop off during the day, but it gets really pleasant during the evenings. So I've decided to buy a bikini top to help alleviate some of the sun exposure during the day. I know I'll have to buy the windshield channel along with the bikini top, but here's my question. Will I have to remove the channel every time I want to replace the hardtop? It never rains here at Fort Irwin, so I don't have a problem leaving the hardtop off for the rest of the summer, but I do take extended road trips where a hardtop comes in REAL handy. Plus I'm spoiled with the ice-cold air conditioning!! Sorry if I'm rambling, just curious whether or not I need to remove the windshield channel every time I want to install the hardtop.
