Folding Back a Supertop?

Silly Question:

I just installed my new Supertop last weekend. I'm really happy with it so far, but I can't figure out an easy way to fold/roll the top back so that it rests behind my rear bench seat while still attached to the rear bow. Do I need to completely remove the top from the bows and fold it up that way? I called Bestop and that was their answer, but I gotta believe there's a way to just fold it back without creasing the windows.

Any hints?

You will need to fold it up and I also put mine in a bag to keep from scratching the windows, Larry

Boy, that makes me really like my kayline. I just flip up each side onto the top, fold it back, flip the front over/under the back, and my spare tire pushes against the top frame and holds it all in place.

Ken, I can do just what you described with the Supertop, if I understand you correctly. Flip the side windows up and fold the front portion under the rear and end up with a nicely folded top, but it's still about 2-3 feet wide. If I fold my rear bench down, the top rests over the seats kinda like a tonneau cover (I need pics, I know). Can you compact the top (either roll or fold accordian-style) so that it only takes up 5 or 6 inches?

Yes, If I needed it to be. The fastrack "bows" fold back with the top attached. The front bow sits probably 4-6 inches behind the stock rollbar. I could roll it tight enough (but don't need to for stock jumpseats) so the top material would probably sit 2 inches or so from the rear upright on the stock rollbar. Sorry, but no digital camera to describe this better.

That makes sense. I think that's basically what I was trying to do, I just don't think I rolled it carefully enough. I'd only need to if I were putting people in the back.
