Soft Top

Winter's coming... Tickford just cloaked the '94. It's raining. I got wet...again. Amazing how 8-months running no top will make you forget.
It's been discussed before. What's the consensus on tops?
I don't like the look of badger gutter kits sans top. It takes away from the astthetics.
Best option for 'water tight' top (quotes because I know it's nonsense).
Thanks y'all.

You can do the badger fabric door seals, or if you want it this winter, rovers north makes a nice top also with FDS.
Exmor is another possibility or oem bestop which you can get from RN or AB I believe. If you run that long w/o a top the extra 20 minutes to remove the gutter kit is pretty minor.

I didn't realize the gutter kit was removable when running without a top. I'd think screwing into and out of aluminum over time would be troublesome.

No not really - the bottom behind the door) screws into a Rivnut insert and the front part is a peg like arrangement - if i remember correctly. Mine is coming off for a hard top install soon so i'll have the parts to take pictures of.
anyway its a max 20 minute job

sounds like an FDS would suit you better
