Hey JLWF and Team Bestop,

Loving my Supertop Ultra - held off on ordering a soft top until sometime like this OEM style one came out. After the install, I struggled to get the front latches to catch and close, it was quite a bit of stretch that was needed and it still it hard at times. Is this normal? Now it doesn't take as much force but I have to do the passenger side first then driver. The first time I did it I laid it out in the hot sun for a few hours and finally got it latch although I thought I may break the latch or the metal catch piece (didn't sound great either).

My other question is regarding the quarter windows, the bottom portion came scrunched, I hope it would soften and straighten out now a few months in the sun. Any suggestions to flatten out that fabric?
