Question type: Maintenance & Repair

serious leak where the top locks down to the frame on the top left corner of the drivers
side door so much so that we have a swimming pool on the floor and the driver seat is
soaked.  Any ideas how to fix it?

I believe there is a latch adjustment with the J hook that will be able to help create a water tight seal. Heres a link on the top install and adjustments: http://www.toplessrabbit.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2330
