Is this the problem you are experiencing with your softtop?

This is why: the metal bars are cutting the rooftop!

While this is how it should be folded.

This rubber band should pull back the fabric, but obviously doesn't do a very good job at it.
On the newer softtops, the rubber band doesn't go through the loop anymore, being able to pull back the fabric some more.
