Charles, there are only 3 snaps for the Tickford B pillar, but the B pillar has 5 snaps on it. You can just do what Tom said, or you can also just leave the center snap on the Tickford unsnapped, and snap the center drop curtain snap in instead. And snap in the 2 top corner snaps of the drop curtain in. You should be fine then.

I'll see if I can do that Josh but I suspect not. To be clear this is no big deal IMO - it's only noticeable that it's not snapped on when doing over 70mph anyway.Either way, the proper thing for tickford tops is to just add snaps on the back of the flap and it's no big deal. Tom just happens to be doing some work to my "other" top so he can hook me up.

So no word on the RURR yet?

Still trying to move the last bunch of these.

If anybody needs any small customization to them I am open to ideas. PM me please.

These are great. Really cut down on wind & noise if you have a surrey top. Also improve the heater effectiveness.

Two small suggestions:

1) make it easy to unsnap and roll up the tarp (or maybe just the window) so that when I have guests in the back they don't feel cut off.

2) adjust the velcro strap so that the hooks and loops are both on their own separate strap. Right now there's only one strap, which when wrapped around the post is often pulled loose over time. This is because the hooks on the strap are connected to the loops on the tarp, however the width of the cage pulls the two apart / prevents them from mating together well.

If you want I can ship you some straps that you can velcro up the curtain when not in use. Let me know. I see what you are saying about the velcro. I am going to ask a few others. I can add snaps if needed. I was trying to keep it all velcro so that no snaps are rubbing on the cage which could damage the cage rubber.

This can be achieved by unsapping the top 5 snaps and the top two Velcro straps; the drop curtain will then fold down around the middle of the headrest. Or if Tom adds two more straps just above the top of the tub level, then it could fold down even more.

Another idea is in future designs to have the window Velcro'd/snapped/zipped in around either the top or the bottom, and the sides.

Can't you just undo the bottom velcro from tub support/roll bar etc... roll up from the bottom and use velcro straps to keep everything tight on top?

This is almost how I'm running mine right now, except that I fold it lower down below the window to keep it out of the way and allow me to reach in the back.

When neatly folded it will fit in the map pocket behind the seat.

If anyone is thinking about this ... Do it ... Not only is the product of exceeding high quality ... It's made here in the tri-state in a factory producing products for the US armed forces and innovative products for the mining industry. This a US designed, US made product being sold by the designer / maker who is a stand up guy. If I had a rag top D90 I'd buy one ... Instead I will just consume Tom's selfless generosity and wine collection!

Thank you for the comments. With that being said I might entertain wine in trade for these..... Just so I can feed the help that comes over occasionally.

After two consecutive days of single digit temperatures testing I can assure you a drop curtain keeps you nice and toasty in your soft top!
