Rovers North Top

I am trying to install a new Rovers North top and can't get the passenger window in the belt rail nor can I get the passenger quarter panel in the belt rail. Tried letting it sit a few days- nothing. Currently have it parked in the sun and that isn't helping either. Any ideas?

Thumbs up

Sometimes the roll bar will get oxidized or ruff on top because of sun exposure, and will keep the top from sliding. Wipe down the roll cage with amour-all or similar product. This will allow the top to side around. Also, I have had success with using a hair drier to heat up top, i.e. making it more pliable.

Good Luck!

Cheers...

Maybe that is because it is a piece of crap clone of the badger top. You should return it and get the real thing.

Run a little space heater inside the cabin to warm up the fabric.
