supertop question

my jeep was involved in a rollover with my new supertoptop on few years ago and bent the frame and all I ebnt the windsheilf frame back to the proper angle and got the measurement like the directions said and the top never fit snug over the front seats and flapped alot , leaks at the tops of the doors and the doors were off in the rolloever but leaked before lol so would I do better buying whole new top or just bows assymbly for $120

the tops is bout 3 years old

would new bows stop the flaping ?

the top has no holes or tears

would anyone recomend any other replacement tops for 1982 cj5

NO LEAKING lol
or flapping the flapping started after the rollover but the leaking was there lol never got it to fit just right

I am about to have it restored and dont wan put the flappy leaky top on unless I fix it s flappyness the leaking to if possible , but the top will only be on it the cold/rain and it really wont be driven much with the top on but still the flappy is what bothers me lol

You rolled it over and just bent the angle window frame? Are you sure the angle was all that was bent?
I would check the corners and center as well just to be sure the frame is not warped.

But I'm still a little confused, Did it flap and leak before the roll over? I know I got my Super top to fit so tight that it would bow out with the heater on full. I don't recall it flapping either. Not like the bikini top I had on it.

flapping was after the rollover , thinking the frames of both windsheild and top arent right anymore but replacing the winsheild frame and probably the frame for the top the cloth is good not tears or nothing
