So I also picked up a netless safari at the sale with plans of doing exactly what you did!! I had a military insect bar that I picked up on Ebay for cheap for my netting. Then bought 10 yards of #10 zipper, whats factory on my explorer. I was planning on using my factory zipper on the explorer as a guide. Then had a thought. Why not do a #2 mod, but use 1 continuous zipper all the way around? Then leave the short side sewed on to roll the net up to. Then I found your thread!! so did you leave the factory trim in place and just sew to it? Anybody see a downside to the #2 mod with one continuous zipper?
