Actually it is the other way around unless I misread the instructions. The velcro straps are used to tighten up the material when you do use the door surrounds to tighten up all that extra material. They tuck inside when not.
Correct. Let's see if I can make this easier to understand in case I'm not describing it right.
The problem with the top is the distance from the header channel to the door surround tab is too long.
Pop in the header tab, tighten per instructions (with straps etc.), put in door surround tabs, continue tightening. This still leaves the bunched up material on the top between the header channel and the door surround. So, I really tighten the velcro straps and it still looks like homemade sin.
From a function standpoint, this additional material means that the top can't be pulled real tight at the windshield corners.
/ = windshield
*= beginning of door surround
---= top material
My problem (viewed from side profile):
Actual distance between windshield header and door surround:
Amount of material in the top to cover that distance:
What I end up with between the header and surround:

Am I doin it wrong?
