Against the well informed advice of Chris, I ordered a new headliner for the 40. Got it from cruiser corps, because he’s a cool fellow. Planning on attempting the install myself when it gets here. Anyone ever do this themselves?


Also, a few questions for before I reinstall the top. Thinking about trimming the poles before I re install to about 2 inches or so to make it a little bit easier. One of the poles needs to be re welded because when we took it off I might have broke the weld when I set it on the ground. Any of you other hard top folks experience any of this?

The headliner is a 2 person job. Don't try it alone, it will look like mine. Also, its a great addition. Quiets it down a lot. Trim the rods, I think all you need is about 4" of that max.

City Racer has some nice gaskets when you reinstall.

Thanks for the tip. Was going to try it myself. Maybe I can get crystal to help me with it since there’s not any heavy lifting. Was hoping to re use the gasket, but if they’re pretty one time use, I’ll look into ordering another. There’s the one that goes around the entire top, and one for the windshield to top connection right?

just saw CR is closed for a while. Cruiser Corps has that tub to top gasket. If yours is still good reuse it

Perfect. I need to get it apart this weekend to check it out anyways. I think assembling it in pieces back onto the truck is a smart move. @DirtRoads and I removed it in one piece and it was a freaking ordeal in itself.
