Well, that is a very decent video that DOES cover the assembly and install quite well.

Geeeeeeeeeeez, he makes the insertion of the Z-Clip look so easy.

Guess that is a result of inserting quite a few Z-Clips.

First timers doing the Z-Clip install, do expect to take a few minute doing what he did in 6 seconds. 8-)

See how he worked on it off a table, as he had it opened. It was easy for me.

FYI for those curious about removing the bestop emblem.

There is nothing underneath it and it comes off cleanly and quickly
I just heated it up with a heat gun for a few seconds. Used a plastic trim tool and popped it right off. I didnt even need to break out the goo gone since it came off clean.

Here is just an example of what i used and what it looks like removed

The video made the z-clip a lot easier. Got it in without any issues. One question i had is one side of the latch goes on easy and the other side has a lot of tension. should i adjust anything or leave as is.

Mine was that way. Just double check that everything looks right, and if so, don't worry. It will loosen up. Mine is perfect after a week and a half and some driving around. Of course, it is cold here. If it is warm there, then just a little time in the sun should do the trick.

Passenger side was tight, one afternoon in the sun and its fine. My soft top was the same way.

I worked off the table also, I had to use a pair of locking needle nose vice grips to hold that sucker up there! I got it done but it certainly wasn’t easy! LOL

I sure didnt see that it was hard. I had to take my fuel pressure sensor off my hemi on my ram today. Now that was a lot harder than the z clip.
