    So, I did the search thing. Led me down many rabbit holes, but, still no clear instructions on how to actually put this thing on my car. Checked my owners manual as well. No dice. Any Spyder owners want to give me the quick and dirty on getting this thing on correctly? They seem to be rare as hens teeth and don't want it to fly off the first time I actually use it....

    Step 1: Lay the cover over the folded top.
    Step 2: Start tucking in the edges of the boot cover.
    Step 3: There are plastic tips on the front of the two side pieces, and one along the back edge. Make sure those are tucked in. They don't really have anything to clip on to, but make sure they are in.
    Step 4: Drink a beer :)

    Hope this helps you both.

    That could be the cleanest tan leather interior I've ever seen on a spyder. Makes me want one of those covers even more. Nice work :thumb:

    Thanks bro! The people who owned this car before me took great care of it, and I'm just trying to keep it up. I feel pretty blessed finding a DSM in this condition. By the way, just saw your pic of your tail light center panel. Very cool. I may have to emulate you with that! Nice Spyder!
