Do you have any tips on reducing or eliminating the creaks and groans in the top?

1. Drive with top down

2. If you can't, then cleaning and lubing the rubberstrip helps a lot. Make sure your windows were adjusted properly (there is a sequenced procedure in the DIYs here), then wipe all rubber gently with rubbing alcohol. Follow up with something like 303 Aerospace protectant or Liquid Wrench Dry Lubricant. The LW may leave a harmless white residue, but it's recommended for rubber window channels.

Seriously. I've found two of the exact same green tourings before and met the owners. Didn't thread about it.

I'll go to Home Depot and get some more tubes. I heard the internet is made of tubes.
