    I did it. You have to bend the windshield channel a little bit to fit the shape of the JL windshield. I also drilled into the windshield channel and use bolts and metal spacers to go into the freedom panel guide holes to secure it down. The bikini top itself fits pretty well, although the back part is a tiny bit wide.

    I’ll have to dig to see if there is more. I swear I posted it here at some point but who knows how long ago or what thread.

    This looks pretty good. Can you post more pics? Is it lumpy anywhere?

    I don’t think I have anymore pictures of it. The JL is wider at the windshield by just a little bit, and narrow were at the rear roller bar. The windchill channel had to be bent just slightly to fit, and I had to pull the rear straps a little tighter on the sides. Other than that good to go.

    posted on this topic last May, works great, better than the $900 being asked for the new one. Should be lots of pics too.
