    Hello,

    Has anyone replaced the vinyl top? Does the back screen have to come out?

    I have a complete new vinyl top I bought from place in USA.

    Also I don't think I will put the C pillar side marker lamps on, I want to remove for cleaner look.

    Thanks
    Bruce

    Yes. The back screen stayed in place.

    Hi Poly,

    Did you make a step by step guide by any chance on how to do it?

    Thanks
    Bruce

    Naw I didn't, Brnz. There was no kit, just a roll of material. The headliner was "fragile handle with care" around the seat belt retractors.

    I did in fact replace the vinyl. The thread is on here.

    Let me know if you have any questions after you read it.
