    Ha! 20 amp breaker, actually. Had some nasty lightning storms lately and it tripped half the box and knocked out the one. Of the three places in town, nobody had what apparently both of us needed.

    Found a way to store my Bestop Supertop without it laying all over the place taking up room. I know they sell soft top organizer kits and such but this cost me about $12. I took (4) 2” spring clamps and screwed them to the wall. I then just hung/clipped everything up. Doors and bows sit right under everything. Hard to think in just a couple of months I’ll be putting it back on :(

    Started to media blast my frame, then the rains came :mad: Black Diamond medium coal slag. Makes quick work @ 10x better than sanding/wire wheel.

    I've been storing my top like this for years. 18 year old top and the windows are still clear!

    Spent the weekend getting the tire carrier installed. Also put in a new radio, fixed some light wiring issues, as well as wiring issues with the wiper motor. Next will be new axle seals front and rear.

    My replacement rear cross member is coming along. Not as slick as some of the work I see here but I will be the only one who knows it's there.

    SuperTop Snap install 1.JPG SuperTop Snap install 2.JPG SuperTop Snap install 3.JPG My Super Top has only velcro wraps above the doors . At 50 + MPH , it tends to come loose & flap . Installed 2) snaps forward toward the windshield on the frame rail. Do not try this at home..... It's been a ' PITA ' ! ( I see that they sell a Tool for 175 Bucks , that would have made my fix easier. I would buy one if I was not as destitute as I feel ! ) Anyway, I'm gaini'n on it .

    Hey Tim & Guys,

    What I learned was that when you set the snaps , with the punch provided, you have to make sure that the ' Rivet ' is peened over all the way. I had the top off , set the cap snaps, but the top back on , installed the inside male part & it wouldn't snap down :( ! The female button was hitting the ' Rivet ' part , by a scooch, but it was just enough to get me goin' ! :censored: I was too damned stubborn to take the top back off, so I struggled with finishing the peening with a semi fabricated clamp / press tool that I cobbed together . Took Her out for a Hi way run of 55 MPH.....it held tight by taking the wind pressure off of the velcro alone. So..... It worked :whistle:

    None of you guys are as pigheaded and dumb as I am ..... so when you do it right the first time, it should be the right fix for a frustrating problem.
    Good Luck & God Speed
    Richie
