On rovers north it's called a roll bar sleeve. Found it on their soft top page. Not the actual part, but they referred to it when identifying which top one should order......sleeved or no sleeve roll bars

Any idea what would happen / how it would look if I just peeled it off?

I assume the top wouldn't be as taught.. Does it sure another purpose?

Leaky flapping top. Just like a Series?

You may just be able to make some gaiters for it out of 1/8" neoprene. It is easy enough to sew up to some velcro, make one for the larger section and one for the smaller section. Pull tight and seal. If you want to make the gaiter as a fixed tube to stretch over like a sock, you would have to remove part of the roll cage to pull it over and down to the nasty bit. You can buy black nylon covered neoprene in the form of laptop sleeves for cheap on eBay. The other option is really big heat shrink. You would have to look around for suppliers, or have a buddy that works for an electric utility.

I may have a suggestion that worked for a friend of mine.

The corroded rubber was weathered so bad it was brittle. ( the part you are looking at) He took the part (whole truck) to a plastic restore place. They fixed it and made it usable for $60 CDN per side now this is 2 years ago and is still nice looking and usable. Took them 2-3 hours. He then went back and had his whole Cage repaired (rubber) $400 last season but it is an alternative to make your own type thing.

My 5 cents worth anyway.
Good luck

Will take pictures once it warms up outside and the NAS 90 stop hibernating from the mounds of snow and fridgit temperatures.

Go take some pics of your friend's truck. I (and I'm sure many others) would love to see what this looks like!

Has anyone removed these? If so, do you have a picture of what it looks like without?
