    do you have to take the back seat off? The tops look cool but if you gotta take the back seat out.

    Just fold the seat down, unless you have an older style, I don't think they folded.

    Other than a good penetrant (PB Blaster is the best I've found) and some persuasion, I don't have an idea. I don't think you will be able to get the seat out with out being able to fold it first! Are you releasing the lever 1st? You could always leave the seat in and use it instead of the supplied suport bow suplied with the top! Good luck

    maybe you better go with the Kayline top!

    i put it on last night...everything went well except for one side i had to make a little modifaction with my pliers and bend one of the brackets but other than that everything fit perfect....after it was all said and done it took me a total of about an hour...i love this thing...it is so quiet goin down the road...i was expecting it to sound like like a jeep soft top but it sounds like i have the hard top on....but about a ton ligher =-) the only down side to the top is the price but that is my only complaint...but everyone i talked to at skyler were very helpful...i will have picts tonight i hope..i dident get a chance to up load them last night.
    well anyway gota go befor the boss busts me
