Another soft top question

Anyone else have issues with the side panels pulling out at speed and flapping? Only happens on my driver's side. I've messed around with it and tried to adjust things but it keeps happening. Frustrating!
(Sorry about the crappy cellphone pictures)

First pulls out from the door like this


about a mile later it pulls right out and starts flappin


Any suggestions?

It looks like you arent putting them in correctly. The plastic panel rolls into the slit, it doesnt just sit on top. Hard to explain, look here:

Pull it forward more and turn it in another 90 degrees before inserting.

Huh, I thought I was doing it right but I'll check it out after work. Thanks for the link! (I didn't bother watching the video on the other thread, duh!)

but I've gotta say, I'm REALLY jealous of Skippy's hair!! Wish I had a doo like that, must be a babe magnet!

Thank you Gents! I've now got it installed properly and it fit's like a very tight glove.
