Nice idea! Was thinking you could use oval grommets fastened to where you cut into the upper door. I know I've seen the kind that fastens and shrinks outward when heated.

I am working on a clamp idea that would be easier to install/remove, and not require cutting. Also, you installed your straps toward the front of the door, but (in my experience) it's the rear of the door top that gets pulled out the most by the wind.

Good idea though. Let's see if I can come up with anything better.

100 Characters is not enough to have an interesting/relevant signature.

Thanks! Since then I've obtained new full soft doors for free and no longer have this problem.

I totally agree with you! Soft top soft doors is the only way to go! :-)

I don't think so. They do make steel skins for the bottom part.

here are some pics of how i made a solution to replace the upper skin of soft doors here are the pics. these windows are made for metal half doors but i found a easy way to make them fit onto the soft door frame and it works fantastic. all i had to do was add velcro to the bottom of the upper skin i used industrial velcro and i sewed it on. and it does not intact them if you want to still put them on metal half doors. the last pic is the final product and it looks way better than the original i think and i took a water hose to it and it does NOT let water in.

there is an easier way to do this not cutting the door. make a L bracket that is in the top corner of the a pillar. when the soft door close it goes in behind the bracket. easy and you do not have to undo anything to get out fast.
