1. INSTALL ANTI-DRAFT PANEL

Note: this item is sold separately from the cab kit and the door kits.

1.1If a hard rear window will be installed, make sure the sheetmetal filler underneath the expanded metal screen is reversed so the small bent lip faces forward as shown in Fig. 1.1 (this acts as a shelf for the hard rear window to rest on). Remove and re-install three (3) bolts holding this filler in place. Note: this filler can also be reversed even for a soft rear curtain installation (in case down the road a hard rear window is desired).

1.2Remove the seat back and install the anti-draft panel onto the back side of the seat back making sure that the clear plastic window in the anti-draft panel is oriented over the fuel gauge which is towards the lower passenger’s side of the vehicle. Note: one edge of the panel is notched to fit around the seat hinges. Re-install the seat back through the original mounting holes and secure with the original nuts.

1.3Raise the lower seat 90 degrees as shown in Figure 1.3. Spread out the anti-draft panel as would appear to be appropriate. Panel may pass under seat and velcro to front of tube beneath front edge of seat. Pull back one area or section at a time in order to assess where to apply the hook (rough) velcro on the vehicle. Per Fig. 1.1, install four (4) pieces of hook (rough) velcro as high up as possible underneath the forward facing sheetmetal lip to the left and right sides of the bolt heads. NOTE: adhesive backed velcro should be applied to a clean, dry surface at room temperature.

1.4Install the anti-draft panel to the newly applied hook velcro on the vehicle. Lower seat back down.

2. INSTALL FRONT MOUNTS

2.1 Loosen the front cab bar bolts and slide the front mount in place between the cab bar and the plastic hood as shown in Fig. 2.1. Repeat for passenger’s side. Leave the bolts loose so that the front mounts can be adjusted when the side frames are installed in step 5.
