Rollbar covers

Is it just me or is it a B to get the mesh inserts into the rollbar after installing a Klisstle cover. I just can't get them to fit now. Anyone come up with a solution to this?

My solution was to sell the rollbar covers.
The mesh just doesn't fit with them.

You got rid of them? ☹ Crap I knew you had some and I figured you had a solution.

Yeah, I guess that wasn't very helpful.
I got rid of mine because I felt that the white was too bold. I managed to squeeze one mesh screen in, but the tabs were so bent from the pressure that I'm sure they would have broken or popped out.

If I had kept the cover, I would have just not used the mesh screens.

I'm gonna keep mine on for awhile. Broke one tab on each cover trying to install them. Guess I should have test fit them before I painted and installed it. 🙄

Thanks

Has anyone who has installed the Klisstle covers had issues with the top rubbing on them as it goes up and down. It is almost to the point where it causes the top to struggle. Just wondering if I am doing something wrong.

I just don't use the mesh couldn't get them back in after putting on the covers. Wish I had tried to put the mesh in first then install the covers.

Yeah same issue, I can't get the mesh inserts to fit after the klisstle cover was taped on. so I got rid of the mesh inserts.

I did however do a highway test with the mesh insert and without, not a difference that I can notice.

Also did a test with the middle windscreen removed, definitely won't do that again...
