Yes, thanks I read that thread a few days ago and considered trying all the tricks but I already had it in the shop for steering issue and asked them to look at it. They said they called the folks at ECR and Rovers North and were advised these things may / may not work but that replacing with new should be a definite way of fixing the prob. I'll take some photos and post.
I hadn't looked at the Rock Mtn. -- anyone have experience with these door tops and whether they do the trick? Certainly cheaper (although I'm not sure what cost would be added for painting black). [I have a Badger II FDS top.]
