Does this seem right (ARE CX topper)?

    Just got a brand new topper on Friday afternoon and I love the look of it. Saturday morn when I gave it a real close look, I noticed the back window seemed to not quite fit. I couldn't place exactly what was wrong, but it seemed the metal frame extended too far down on either side, and didn't seem to have a factory edge on it. Closer inspection showed that there is a sizable gap (about enough for a pinkie to squeeze through easily) on either side of the back window. When I looked inside where this gap is, you can see the shell has been trimmed a bit. Anybody got an ARE CX? Does your back window look like my pics?

    What happened with your shell? Did you get it fixed?

    Funny thing...they gave me a 209 black topper rather than the 202 black I needed. Couldn't really tell the difference till I got my truck clean and the sun really shone on it. They are ordering me a new shell and told me they would adjust the cuts made at the factory and the fit would be much better. I'll wait to see how that one fits and hope for the best. It seems like a nice topper otherwise.
