    What specifically have you done? My Bestop does that, usually a little driving cleans it off. You might try and "peak" it with a peice of PVC fit between the bow's.

    I dunno, like I said, I usually just drive it a little, it'll run off. For ice and snow, I put a halogen shop light in the back of my truck for about an hour, then get the water off.

    Do you have the inside flaps wrapped around the proper frame rails? easy to put them on incorrectly especialy the one closest to the cab.

    Joe, that sounds correct. I have a hard time seeing how it could "puddle". I will take some pics of the inside of mine tomorrow and try to post them, too so you can compare. Mine has never "puddled". Where exactly on the top is it doing that?

    if you divide the top into quarters it will puddle on the drivers side front
