Bestop=awesome. I can't wait to get one. Where did you order yours from?
Did you figure anything out with the taillights? You should VHT Niteshade next time. That seems to work well.
As for the badges, I just used a hair dryer and fishing line. It's hot enough here that you don't need as much heat as a heat gun puts out. My bedside decals came right off last fall, without any extra heat. Heh.
The tail lights are still dull, but I haven't had a chance to try the tricks everyone gave me yet. I'm going to get a power ball and try more polishing compound & plast-x, and if that doesn't make them right then I'm going to try stripping the coatings off completely and start over with VHT.
Oh, and I got my Supertop off eBay, with my work discounts and everything I only ended up paying like $550 including shipping. It was a pain in the ass to install the actual vinyl material and windows for the first time, everything was SUPER SUPER tight just like a new Jeep top. I'm letting it stay open for a few days before I even attempt to try finishing the installation... Half of my snaps are still 1/8"-1/4" off so I'm hoping it will stretch and conform enough to get them all fixed in place. That said, even with only half the snaps hooked up it is solid as a rock even at 75-80 MPH so I'm pretty happy with it. My biggest complaint is how dark the damn windows in it are... I can't see a thing out my rear view mirror with it up, and it creates some pretty nasty blind spots too. The blind spot thing wouldn't be an issue on your DC, though.
I got my headlights off eBay too, and only paid something like $47 shipped for them also. Perks of the job.
