Anybody have any simple solutions for the white edge that is visible on the black hardtop after freedom panels are removed. Looks retarded on anything but white jeeps. I am half tempted to hit it with a black sharpie. Don't really feel like painting the whole interior of the hard top which should have been black in the first place.

Not my pic but you can see here

No way on the sharpie idea. Tape it off and spray paint it with a flat black or PlastiDip it.

All I see is the Liquor Market.....sure you could paint the white part of the sign black (which would take a lot of sharpies, but the red letters look fine on the white background.

Just to clarify, the white part showing is the way it is supposed to be or not? Mine is all black, no white lip showing...?

There is a white lip/edge? Wow. That seems kinda goofy. I agree with the others - plastidip is your friend:like:

Unless you're 6'6" I don't see myself every being bothered with that.

With that said, you'll want to take the tops off and prep/paint them black. I couldn't imagine just doing the exposed lip and not doing the entire panels.

Why can't OP take it to dealership and have them paint it the way it is supposed to be. I'd call it a factory defect...
