Re: I need help installing a 2 piece hardtop.......
to add to what sarge wrote. He is correct on the front part the lip needs to be bent towards the rear of the rig.
put some calking there to stop leaking issues, smooth it down, wait till it dries completly before you put the top on.
The second issue is the back of the front hatch. your overhead bars are in the way.. They are "Stock" aren't they?
if they are in the stock position they are on top of the targa bar and need to be moved to the bottom of the targa bar.
What the instructions of my top (which by the way is the exact same top) was to drill straight down the holes (carefull not to mess up the threads) once you have taken the overhead bars off.
then take a longer bolt with the same metric threading and put the bar ends on the bottom of the targa bar and bolt it up, CAREFUL not to tighten too much, otherwise it WILL cave the targa bar in at the top.
the bolts I used were flush with the top of the targa bar once it was installed you can put silicon to cover up the holes on top and keep the rain out.
Or you can put that long awaited roll cage in?
Hope this helps.
