I should have them by tomorrow.

I don't think so, Maj...I tried to fit the latches from the hard top and no matter what permutation of screw holes I used, it wouldn't work. When i flipped it over, it said "For Hard Top use only". So there must be a difference in how much it PULLS the top in.

Slapped the hard top on today, going to get a 2 way alarm installed today.

Sorry brother....at least you don't have to worry about snow coming, which would put off your fix/install.

No doubt, man. Well, got the parts in from the junkyard that were missing. They shipped fast! :grin: Put the soft top latches in, and the driver side weatherstrip. It's glorious...I don't think that hard top is going back on until March when it rains daily!

Thanks, Matt!

I sure did...and TBH...having done it once, I could knock it out again in half the time. It wasn't SOOO bad. Some lessons learned and when it comes time to replace the fabric, I'll be glad I've done it before.

lol, the rear tray is back out again. After putting up the soft top I realized the rear support rail is on a spring and the strap should have been bolted 1 or 2 bolts further back. I literally almost started crying but held it together and removed rear tray and figured out that I can get back there with a 10mm ratchet without too much trouble.

Yum, well in return. I hate you for having more smarts than me, making more money than me, having more vacation than me, having more internet muscles than me and for having a bigger e and real peen than me (especially since you're asian).

I think that makes us even.

Wow...

Talk about similar Asian upbringings...For the subjects of maff, physics, and chemistry, I had ZERO slack because my Pops had a PhD in thermal dynamics and was a prof...

And if the mark was not past 95%...somebody was gonna get a hurt real bad. Somebody.

And somebody also was gonna get no meal real soon. Somebody.

Haha.. too late sucka!

In Waikiki, bunch of douchebags would just walk around with their small dogs, picking up tourist chicks..

I used to fuck with their game and crowd out the hotties dawwing over their puppies.. #blackbelt #cockblockdojo #trolololololoo
