On the bright side, you can get it fixed in about three years.

I've only seen it start to do that on one top and the top had mold all over it. Your top must have sat with water for a long time. Never seen on rear that far. That's insane.

Did you talk to Chris about it? Wonder why the top would split like that.

Wonder who has the oldest badger out there. I can't believe my top is seven years old. Thankfully the fluorescent lights in my garage haven't faded it.
