Does anyone have a comment or advice for installing this top? The side curtains are longer than they should be in order to get taut.

That doesn't sound right. Make sure you have the right top, there are multiple versions based on, among other things, NAS vs RoW.

The description I have on my invoice from Rovers North is 1994 NAS D90. All of the tabs on the other edges are taut but the two side curtains are about 1/2 inch too long.

Not my choice in design, but it's designed to be folded twice. Here's a fitting video -
Wow. That video was educational. Thanks so much! I can’t imagine getting enough slack for the “second fold” but that is clearly what I am doing wrong.

That's sort of the problem with soft tops. In my experience the harder it is to install, the better it'll look.

When I had a jeep, I would make a point to leave it in the sun for a few hours upon first install
