Bikini Top w/ Drill-in Header Bar

Hello all.

Just curious to know if anyone else has this problem.

I have a Mopar bikini top with drill-in header bar.

Right where the hard top would normally clamp in, I get serious leaking if it has been raining. I do my part to bang all the water off the roof prior to taking her out but you know you can't get it all.

If I stop, water leaks right through where the hard top would clamp in. It just so happens that it land on the steering column.

Because of this, I am on my second clockspring.

So, do you have this issue as well? Were you able to remedy is with a fix and how so?

Thanks in advance for the assistance.

JT

Can't speak for the mopar drill in header but I used my best top drill in header twice in the last 9 months I've owned it, either hard top or no top for this guy...

I've not had that problem. I used to have that setup before but I switched to a no drill style and it works fine. Why not just get rid of the drill/screw type and go to the no drill type? I know you have the one setup but it seems to me if you were having troubles with it it might be easier to just get rid of it. It might save alot of aggravation in the long run.
