Funny, i am just catching up on threads and then will post a little writeup on my install. I swear the instructions on mine include removal of the little bumpers, but now that you mention it I didn't put them back in (nor do I see any need to).

I got #6 x 1/2" pan head phillips screws (crown bolt brand from home depot). I have not tried them yet (just stole one from another door top) but they look to be an exact match by eyeball. I'll go fit one later and comment here if for some reason these are not right.

I just drilled the old screw out carefully and was lucky to keep it on center, so I just rummaged for a screw that looked the right size at the time and used it to re-cut the threads. It took a few times of just getting it to turn one or two revolutions with lots of pb blaster as a cutting lubricant to cut some threads into the aluminum.

Chris,

You are correct, it's not in the version of the instructions you have, but we did film it for the video we are working on and it will be in the next printing of the instruction manuals. Some will have this issue, some won't; it varies from vehicle to vehicle. This is why I'm only printing the manuals in small batches!

Yes, just pry it out with a screwdriver or pull it out will needle-nose pliers, then replace when done.

Hope you like the results you get from the kit!

Best,
Paul

I snapped a head off one of the damned screws, too. What a bummer. Besides drilling and tapping it, I need to source a whole new screw. Charles, what size tap and screw did you choose to replace the sheared one?

I think I will soak the other screws in PB Blaster to hopefully prevent this from happening again.

Not having much luck removing this rubber bumper. How did you pry yours out without destroying it?

It's funny how it's easier to rebuild a rear axle on a D90 than it is to do little things like fix a window rattle, fix the leaky vent seals, or install a tow jaw.

Perhaps wait for Paul to confirm they are not needed after putting in his seals, but mine were more of a closed cell foam type of material and didn't come out entirely unscathed. I don't recall but it would have been either a small screwdriver or needle nose pliers. But I didn't put mine back in and I don't think I will.

I prefer to use needle-nose pliers. Just get a good grab on the end and then pull out. When you go to put it back in, it's helpful to squeeze the foam with the pliers to compress it. That will help you get it started. The foam is really dense.

I know, sometimes the easiest things can be the trickiest. Believe it or not but the install on the rear sliding windows on the hard tops is a WAY easier as job. It seems like it would be more difficult a job with having to drill out all the rivets, but the install on the removable door tops is definitely the trickier of the two.

Thanks for the comment on the packaging!

Keep me posted.

Best,
Paul

Charles,

Chris is referring to the hard rubber bumper that stops the inside window glass when you push it all the way forward.

Curious about your install and tips you would have for others. I consider the instruction manual a 'living document' that can always be improved. It's hard to cover every possible situation in a little booklet and no one wants to read a novel for something like this, but I'm always looking for ways to make it easier for the next customer.

Best,
Paul

Writeup here:

http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...d.php?p=337902

I didn't remove the rubber bumpers in the window bottoms, but I think mine didn't have those screws, because I stole 2 screws from another window to finish this install and only broke one But I believe I removed that screw on the other window without sliding it any further forward than it's usual position.

Installation Videos & Armed Forces Rally Team

We have created installation videos for these kits. We are still doing to the voice-over and editing on the Soft Top kit, but the Rear Window kit video is now up on our YouTube page. Hopefully we'll have the Soft Top kit video up in a month or so. (slowwww process!)

You can check it out at http://www.youtube.com/GarrisonOutfitters

Also, the Armed Forces Rally Team in the U.K. is now running our kits on all six of their Rally Wolf vehicles! I have attached a couple photos showing them installing our product.

Here's a quote from their team director:

“Many thanks for the provision of your window kits which have worked very well in both stopping the constant and annoying rattling and also the automatic vibratory closure of the windows whilst out on the special stages!” A Paramore MBE, Major, Team Director, Armed Forces Rally Team

I am traveling to Scotland to join the team at the Jim Clark Rally the first weekend in June and will report back on the sure-to-be-exciting weekend! You can check out the rally at http://www.jimclarkrally.com/

You can learn more about the Armed Forces Rally Team at http://www.armedforcesrallyteam.com/ They have many great photos and videos up on their site. Check it out!

Best regards,
Paul

The links are still good.

The promotional pricing ended a few months ago though. The kits now retail for the regular price of $129.99, but still with 10% off for D-90 Source members.

Best regards,
Paul
