just my thoughts.
I just unzip the sides of the rear window, and 'hang' the window inside with two little hooks, much like this..

Soft Top Seals - By Yousef Hamzeh

I've also seen people take a piece of foam pipe insulation, and put the slit over the edge of the soft top, and zip tie in place. I couldn't find a picture, but it reportedly works pretty well as a cheap fix too..

Ah, I didn't realize the B2 windows didn't zip out; good information! Still going to get one as soon as my B1 sells.

One would think that I have enough information on the tops on our website. But, I know as a fact that guys don't read instructions.

First let me say that I LOVE your products

You are kidding about the information right

The links under instructions / tip do not work

I'm a little confused, does the Badger II seal up better or worse than the Badger I?

In particular, with the FDS - are they both going to seal up behind the front seats about the same or will the Badger II be less tight?
