It’s still sunny out, and I had just been burned by my NAV unit the day before. The 730 had a thunderstorm warning, so thinking a monsoon was coming, I pulled over on the side the road immediately and installed the Supertop NX. Wouldn’t you know it, no rain. So I’m standing next to my vulnerable interior and decide that it’s not going to rain. I begin the 60 yard walk back to the barbeque in the backyard. I get about half way there before the downpour comes.

Raindrops the size of baseballs, and all the while the sun was still out. I scramble to my baby and start to put the top on. The Supertop NX is simple enough to install, when im calm I can do it in about 5 minutes. I was not calm this time. Got it unfolded tacked down the rear corners and then one of the front clips was above the inner hook, and I had to lift it off and fix it. It was a real pain, and the rain is coming down diagonally so it’s coming in the windows and the rear. I can’t slow down until all the windows are in and the tailgate is closed. Water everywhere inside. Once the rain stopped which took some time, it took me about 30 minutes to try and wipe it down and dry it out. Needless to say it was a nightmare. The rain made these marks in the seats and the roll bars. The Safari straps show no signs of wear. I wanted waterproof seat covers before, but now they were a necessity.
