AREA SOFT TOP ENCLOSURE
Remove any accumulation of rain, snow, and ice from the cargo cover
as soon as possible. Failure to do so could result in damage to the
cargo cover assembly. If the vehicle is to be parked for a long period of
time, the cargo cover can be removed. The decision whether or not to
remove the cover should be based on the length of time the vehicle is
to be parked and the expected weather conditions.
For ease of installation, soft top components should be installed
when temperatures are above 72F (22C).
To prevent seams from leaking, coat with adhesive as needed.
