Default Supertracks Installation

Installing Supertracks on my 7 slider. Has anyone trimmed the turtledeck skin to allow the canopy to slide further back on the tracks? There seems to be several more inches available for the taking.

I installed mine about a month ago and on my 6 I trimmed the turtleneck about an inch and a half for more travel.

We installed them for a customer and cut the skin back quite a bit. He loved them on his first cross-country.
