Badger Soft Top in So Cal

Does anyone here in Southern Cal have a Badger soft top installed? I had Chris modify my Best Top to fit the gutter kit and I am not sure how to install a few bits and pieces.

Can't help there, but can you tell me how much was it to modify the best top and how long did it take? Thanks

You need to buy the gutter kit which is roughly $250, and Chris charged me $250 for the mods, and I also bought a Euro style header bar becaue I didn't want to modify mine for another $250.

Prices are rough.

It took awhile, but that was ecuase I told Chris he could take his time.

Everything fits great however I can't figure out how to secure the canvas right behind the doors.

Joe, post some pix of what it is you have the question on.
Guessing now - once on there is a space / gap between the soft top and the verticle edge of the window frame? Am I correct this is the question? If I am, to best fit, with the top on, start in the late afternoon when the top has had a day to warm up, from the rear corner slowly pull the top towards the front. You should gain an inch or so as you progress. That should get you all that you can. From there - if not happy, post a pix to show waz up.
Another thing, months ago Yousef posted a fix it to hold the soft top tighter. Do a search and it will pop up.

And finally, which Chris? I am looking for help with the rail system on a 1994 d-90.
