Hard top bikini

Pretty psyched when I read the manual and noticed that you can leave the hard top panels in place when you take off the hard top. Fooking SWEET!!

Thought I would pass that onto any other noobs who might have been wondering.

The manual - it knows all.

After being stuck on the freeway for a coupel hours in traffic last summer with the top totally off and no sunscreen, ending up with a blistered nose and glowing red forhead, thats the only way I roll now. Agreed, SWEET!!

Yeah, I love running with my front panels in place- it's a great way to keep the sun off when your running trails.

2 things to remember

1) when you are running the panels without the hardtop- remember to flip the the little "legs" down. This is necessary to prevent the big thumb screws from going to far in and damaging the tops.

2) when you go back to putting the hard top on- don't forget to flip those "legs" back up. If you don't, you will have a really bad leak (ask me how I know )

it holds up great! the top doesn't move even doing 80 MPH also no complaints from frieds kids and girlfriend about the sun. i will say it isn't ment to be used for rain since you will get leaks from the strap holes.

Those wade skytops - have a couple of question for anyone who is running them? Don't mean to get off the subject...but.
1. What is the noise like running at freeway speeds?
.....reason I ask is becuase I have a bikini top from best top and they really don't have a good way of securing the dam thing where it can stay tight. I was driving home in 25mph winds yesterday and could barely hold my speed in 5th gear (w/35's, no gears yet). I felt like a dam parchute! And it dropped my mpg down to 10!
2. What are they like in the heat? Do they melt?.lol. Is it like an incubator?
Only reason I have the binkini is to help with the shade, likes others have mentioned, I'd run no top if it wasn't for the blistering sun.
3. Does it flap at all?

Never even saw these until now....any info would be hepful.....
