    K, I need a crash course in FST 101. School me.
    But really, anything that I need to know about FSTs for the 73 year.
    Question: How does the weather affect the installing of FSTs.

    K, Start in the FAQ's

    Next do a search on OEM softtop here, over on pirate4x4 and even google returns a ton of info.

    Answer: Generally, the warmer it is, the more flexable the newer material tops are and are easier to install. Don't install outside when raining.

    UH, you just get a lot more wet than if you planned ahead! :flipoff2:

    Sunny days really are the best time to do it, even though that's when you'd most like to keep it off.

    I have a Kayline replacement canvas, got it new. So this was a while back. Using with the sides rolled up during the day and then rolling the sides down at night. I guessing if the temp was in the mid fifties the windows would be stiff and hard to roll down. I would be afraid if it was colder the windows might crack. As far as installing over the bows it has to be a warm day and the let sit in the sun awhile before fastening the twists.
