Hi there, sorry for the bad english. When you hold the plastic strip with the fabric atatched you can pull iT downwards and ad the same time move it towards the front.

Has anybody got the PDF version of this? Need it fairly desperately - all ready to go but none of Shipkiller's pics are loading! :(

Haha. Well I can't take credit - found some instructions in German when I didn't have Shipkiller's pics. Will post details/pics soon. It does involve breaking the roof fabric rivets and replacing them with flat screws, so won't be for everybody.
