    If you have an older soft top and the elastic snaps that hold the sides and back rolled up for that ruggedly stunning safari look, have stretched out and no longer keep them rolled up tight. Have no fear, these simple and easy to understand direction with pictures will walk you through the proccess.
    First you must gather the appropriate tools for the job as seen in figure A1.
    A1.>




    [​IMG]
    As you can see you will need a pair of scissors( which can be obtained from your wifes sewing box or if your lucky like me, you can find a pair in the road),a stapler( that can be borrowed from your wifes home office or if you have small children you can have them lift one from their teacher), a roll of electricians tape and a step stool for that wicked lift you put on your rig to wheel at the mall.

    Step 2 requires you to drink a few beers and staple the chit outta the elastic part of the snap.Step 3 require another beer and taping the stapled bundle of elastic.As seen in figure B2.

    B2.> [​IMG]
    And here is the finished product.No more saggy mess.

    This brings us to step 4.
    Mix yourself a drink cause you've had a rough day.

    I also think that if you write an article and get the icon ,that you should be able to click on that icon under that persons name and get sent to their article.I suggested that before but I guess it didnt fly.OK so Stomp wrote one ,where is it???
