Oh great Kazoo,

The channel that I ordered specifically for my new bikini top/40 is so wrong...

pieces too long and too wide to fit and screw on to top on windshield... did they send me the wrong part, or is there something weird I need to know?

Anyone know where I can find a channel locally? Swap meet!

Is it from Bestop? I seem to recall that mine didn't fit right either, and so I cut it down to size on the straight section, ensuring that the bends on the two channel ends still fit correctly. I don't remember how it came, but at this point I have two pieces that fit the ends correctly, and there's a small gap at the center of the windshield.

I cut about 2 inches off of each side in the center where it is straight. Still wider than the actual Bikini top, but it works just fine.

Who did you get the channel from? I have bought 2 separate ones from Bestop and they fit perfectly with no modification. Bestop is located in Denver so if you contact their customer service people they can get one to you quickly.
