No windows is definitely a different look. I thought it might be interesting to take some pics before the windows go on, but I am not quite to that stage yet (but close). Having such a busy schedule, I have only had time to work on this 20 minutes to an hour at a time. If I waited for a day off, this project would never be completed so for now, it is baby steps.
The arched flap was completed with the zipper and velcro sewn in yesterday. It does not lay perfectly flat since sewing around corners tends to create some waves, but it looks ok and functions as expected. This morning I attached the other side of the zipper to the back window panel. Now adjustment/fitting of the rear quarter panels begins, starting with velcro first, then an attachment rail for the back will be fastened to the rear door with factory bolts and finally, the vertical zippers will be sewn into the front and rear panels. This is to insure everything will be pulled taught vertically first and finally, horizontally. I don't expect every panel to be exactly perfect in terms of waves/wrinkles, but hey, it's a soft top, so it will be as close as possible.
If the attachment rail does not work as planned, I can simply add twist locks instead, but I expect it will work just fine.
