Hard top/Soft top 88YJ

Hello Jeepers

Here's the info 88 yj hard top on the leaks come from the windshield/ just put the soft top on and NO LEAKS at all... Is there a adjustment when putting on a hardtop? I know there is when putting on a soft top?

I bought a new set of Seals for mine on my 95 I never had it leak or a draft !


I plan on doing this again on my 89 when it comes time to install the top again

I used what's call "emseal", which is an expanding foam strip used for metal roofing. Fully expanded it measures 1"x1".
