Here is part one, http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/f...my-yj-1357433/
since I cannot figure out how to reduce the pictures I will just make a new thread. The first thread shows a easy way to keep water from pooling on your soft top and to keep your soft top from flapping in the wind. And the second tip in the first thread is how to makes and install a $7.00 hand shifter for FI Yjs. The sink clip is the really cool part.
On this thread I will show what you can do with your old soft top to make it last a little longer after the threads pull out on the rear corners and the mesh that I used to keep honest hands out of my Jeep when parked and as a side note keep my dog from falling out accidentally.
1st and 2nd Picture is my garage. I built my house about four years ago and completed it with a 25 x 46 garage with two large doors. The 12' 3" ceiling height allows me to have a lift.
Yes, I am bragging a bit. But darn do I like it. This is the garage that I would dream about as a kid.
3rd Picture is the screen that I picked up at Home Depot for about $15.00. I started by wrapping the screen around the roll bar behind the driver seat. I then tie strapped the screen to the roll bar. Next I pulled the screen around not too hard around the other four roll bar posts. tie strapping as I went along. The end fit was pretty good with a little bit of easy cutting using a razor blade. I had allot of comments from people some asking where I bought the setup. When summer comes I will have to take it down due to the extreme Florida heat but until then this works nice.
4th Picture shows the screen and my dog Rocky. I have a another top for just above the seats but it does not give enough sun protection. At the beginning of winter the threads on the corners of my top came undone. This seems to be where the soft tops start to come apart. So I rolled up the tops corner and tie strapped it. I had no intention of using the windows for the winter anyway.
5th picture is everything completed.
I just made a new sun top for my rig for free. I will be pulling it soon to run AC, but I will keep the old top and re install it next winter.
