Soft Top part

I can't find the piece that goes behind the front doors to stiffen up the seal at the doors. It's black metal and bolts to the body just behind the door and goes straight up and hooks onto the bar that runs from the rollcage to the windshield. I'd post a picture but...well... I don't have the part to show what it looks like.

This is for a standard replacement top, it has a sleeve which this piece slides into- this piece did not come on the soft tops that are made of a stiffer material behind the doors. Any help is appreciated!

I am not sure you will be able to find a replacement part for that since the Tickford tops are a bit rare. I would think any hardware store would have something about the same size that would fit into the sleeve though. I've never know that it was supposed to bolt to the body, have I been missing something all these years?

I think he's actually talking about a bestop - "standard replacement top," which, if it is the later style bestop, has a stiffner bar that slides into the top, hooks to the top bar, and bolts to the body capping. I'm sure they're available separately from LR, and cant be too expensive.

I'd like to see a piece for the tickford. I am sure I can make my own, but I don't know if/how it attaches to the rest of the frame.

thanks

I have a pair of them in my parent's garage. Let me look for them and you can have them.

Great! I scoured Roversnorth but couldn't find them anywhere. Yes I mean for "bestop" top- although after having a badger setup I think they're misnamed. If anyone has some that are the same as George's price or less that are headed to MAR let me know.
