I am, no pictures though. I can take one or 3 tonight. Oh wait, nevermind...I don't have it on anymore, now that it stopped raining.

I just use the standard 40 bikini, installed the window channel, use the headache rack and loop the straps down to the bed hooks. I drive it on the freeway, 60-70 mph, with no issues daily.

Wow, thanks Cruise4070 and Landpimp - those look great.

Since I never had a bikini on the 40 nor this, if I put that window channel on does it interfere with putting the hard top back on?

Looks like you both have the American Racing rims.

Yes, you need to remove it to reinstall the hard top. I use metal roofing screws to hold the channel on. I use my cordless drill to install/remove the channel. The screws have a built in rubber washer that seals the hole so water doesn't get inside the window.

actaully no, on my 45 I leave the window chanell on when I put the hard top back on....its a bit harder to gett the levers down on the top but it no biggy.

I used some of the holes that were already on the frame......might be stock holes or might be PO drilled.......I dunno

oh and my chanel is not drilled into the frame where it will leak, but into the lip
