Fixin' the bikini top (Bestop Strapless)...pics

When we bought the Islander it came with a practically NEW soft top...the bikini top on the other hand straps that wear heavily work and weathered...they ripped off. Well that sucked! Anyhow...

So off to HB, some cheap grommets and some Velcro straps....about 40 minutes later and the wife and I were good to go....doesn't flap around nor hit me in the head...went up to 60mph no worries.

Rotted Straps...




Make some holes and put grommets on...




Put it on and tighten 'er up....




Done!

...and of course since I had grommets and such out, the wife wanted me to take some material she had and make a key chain for her!

Great. I have some straps torn on mine too. And I already have some grommets stashed in the garage.
