I see.
Thanx for sharing.

I know exactly what you mean: mine gets really tight when I put it down, but not tight enough to tear I guess cause its still doing fine after 2 years. I'll see if there's any way I can relieve it a wee bit just to help it a bit.

If I didn't have a hard dog bar designed for the soft window I would buy this in a second.

white NA + tan top = awesome.

That prestige top is what I have. Zip down rear window with the rain gutters over the door windows. Pretty awesome top. Again, not easy to install but for the price I dont think you can do better.

Dave's no longer sells Kee tops, from an email:
Oilstain, our tops are made by Autotops, Inc. a company that has been building
tops since the '50s. I can not tell you what top will clear your rollbar. I
would suspect that the only tops that might work would be the zip plastic
or zip glass, but it will depend on the roll bar design. Is it a real roll
bar with back braces or just a style bar?. Dave

It's a hard dog single diagonal. An actual bar. I think I'm going to go with a zip plastic one. I like being able to crack the rear zipper a bit for airflow if I want to keep the top up. I don't think I would like a non-zippered top.

*I have a very simile question as falcon so I figured I'd try to reanimate this thread rather then start a new one dedicated to a question thats almost exactly the same.*

My top is fine with the exception of my plastic rear window, which has developed two largish tear in the plastic rear window, one tear in the vinyl just below the rear window, and above the window where the zipper comes together a long rip has occurred just below the bottom zipper. So my question is, should I get something like this which would require me to remove my top in order to mend the rip in the fabric near the zipper, or should I get a cheap new top like this. I don't put my top down much and I'm tired of having a nasty looking taped up rear window.

Thanks.
