might be a stupid ? but what is a halo top?
what about around the back window? how do you get it tucked back in and sealed?
sounds pretty damn simple
Im thinking of just covering the existing vynil with this material but not sure if it would work, dont know if maybe I can weather proof it or somethin...

its white in white so you cant always see the roses

the BEST way to do any top is to remove all the windows where the vinyl is covering and reinstall them after the top is glued on, but you can get away with taking the window trim off and cutting the vinyl into small over lapped sections that can be tucked inbetween the window ant the top and when you put the trim back on you wont be able to notice[/b][/quote]
Already talked about that bro
what kinda lac is it?
Im afraid Im not understanding, you said your top covers the trim and the window? how is this possible? do you mean that the top meets the glass with just a seal around the glass?
oh, I see, the picture didnt come up b4 when I looked, your back window is just like mine,

I think what you will need to do is peel the seal off of the glass and pull the vynil out to reveal the frame of the window... Im assuming it would not be nesisary to remove the glass because when you put the new vynil on you just need to tuck it back into the frame and run another seal along the edge

is that right guys, if not someone help us both out... LOL
if you look real close I think youll see a thin bead of sealer around the edge of the window
