Anyone with the Premium soft top having their windows sag/distort in the heat wave?

I went to roll the back window up to fit some boxes in the back and just the weight of the flap on my hand was enough to put an indentation on the plastic window. It's about 94 degrees here.

Lol, 94 degrees isn’t hot. Direct sun on the other hand will microwave that thing.

But yeah, the plastic windows turn to mush when it’s warm and rock solid when it’s cold. It’ll stiffen back up probably overnight. Just don’t crease it and you should be fine.

Hey, 94 is pretty hot for CT! :whew:
Amen. The humidity this week is disgusting... I’ve had to keep my top up and A/C on.

My windows looked a bit saggy when I got out of work the other day, but the next morning they looked fine.

Yeah, I actually welcome this overcast that we have right now. Cooled things off a bit.

Hearing thunder here in Stratford right now... hoping for a quick t-storm to bring down the humidity.

Have a great holiday!

It will survive the one week of hot weather and be alright.

I know the feeling... I'm waiting on the next Ice Age so that we will finally have a *temperate* climate around here... :(
