You guys mentioned the hard top added extra height and I could not afford any more for my house garage. I did wear gloves so that I did not get fiberglass splinters from those rods.

That looks nice. Feel like it's pretty durable?

The material feels thinner than a jeep top but still really good quality. I am down in Houston and my Pioneer will always be stored indoors. I would guess this material will last me a long time.

I will take some additional pictures. It has some fiberglass rods that go across to keep it curved up in the middle and no tools required. I just ran the poles through the top like a tent and snapped in place the rod holders and tied down the top with adjustable straps. I have not gone at speed with it on but it is nice and secure. The weather is rainy here and I am not go out until it is clear.

7 foot garage is the main reason for soft vs hard top. I read the hard top added height and I could not afford that with my garage. The fiberglass rods will even bend in if it did scrap the top.

Looks good printman, I think I will order one.

Did it come with anything to attach it to the Honda windshields?

It did. I did not pay any attention to that because I don't have a windshield. They don't give you instructions. It comes with a link to the Honda accessories website. If you go to the website and select the top it will open a window to the right and down at the bottom you can download installation pdf.

I looked at the instructions for the bimini top. The other one they call fabric roof and rear panel has no instructions.

I have been trying to figure out the difference between the bimini and fabric roof. The fabric roof costs 3 times as much as the bimini but has the back panel. I figured it was made of a heavier material but I am starting to think it is the same material. It does not make sense why it would cost so much more for just the rear panel??? My original thought was the bimini was like a sun screen and fabric was waterproof.

I think what I will order is the bimini top and the mid panel. I just want to close off the front seat.

Thanks for the pictures it really helped.

Doesnt the fabric roof come with the back panel also? That might be why it 3x's as much. I havent looked into them much but plan on going all soft top next winter

I am trying to install mine today but the fit around the corners seems to not be right. The fiber rods seem to be too long. The roof at center is way up over the roll bar. Is this normal? I did not get a picture yet, but looks like 8 inches or more. The picture I have seen shows a bow as well I think, but my fitment seems off.

Related note. Anyone install fabric roof with Super ATV windshield? Supposed to fit, but wondering if the P channel is in the wrong place.

Thanks
