Did I mention that the windows zipped very easily into place?
I've seen tops where aligning the zippers took some serious effort. The
Fast Back top wasn't anything like that. The zippers mated up nicely and
were easy to operate.
With the side windows attached, the rear window was attached. Three buckled straps secure the window to the ceiling panel. I also started the zippers on either side of the window....about 6" worth of zipper engagement. At this point, you don't need to tension anything else on the top. Everything needs to be attached and in place as the next step is where the plastic rails get inserted into the grooves all over the TJ.
Next, attach the Fast Back's plastic rails, above the doors,
into the grooves at the top of the door surrounds. Do this on both of the
door surrounds. Take your time and get everything aligned nicely.
With the plastic rails slipped into the door surrounds, continue
with the plastic rails along the front edge of the side windows. These are
pressed into position going down the door surrounds (top to bottom).
Without tension from the rear edge of the window, these may not stay in place
rear well. Don't worry, get them in place and they will get snugged down
as soon as you start working the lower plastic rail into position.
Speaking of the lower plastic rail on the side windows, start
tucking the rail into the body groove, front to back, along both windows.
Again, take you time and work everything into place.
The plastic rails at the rear corners are pre-cut to make it
easy for you to bend the rail around the corner of the tube. If you are a
lousy driver and have beat your corners to pieces, buddy, you are on your own!
At this point, you should now have all of the plastic rail tucked into the corresponding grooves on the header, the door surrounds, and the body.
