But, I'd love to bring a bunch of stuff up as soon as I get things running for highway speed again. OR, anyone that wants to is welcome to come here to do some testing. @ Martin - Aren't your bows Paki bows already? I thought they had a rear soft amby door bow set up on them???
As soon as possible though, I'd love to do a 40 soft top day type of thing, with anyone that is interested. Maybe in conjunction with the delayed 40's only run???
Best,

I can drive up to your place sometime, but since my rig would be topless, it will need to be a somewhat nice day. I like the idea of a late 40's run too. Topless snow run!

Regarding my bows, they are OEM, but I added that cross piece in the back to hold my Bimini top on.

Before I pull my bows, I'm going to fiddle with them and see if I can figure out what's causing the weird fit. I recall that the door hinges are adjustable, so between that and the adjustments on the bows, I'm hoping to figure it out. It almost looks like my windshield tilts back about 2 inches too far, if that's possible.

Looks awesome, I'll be starting mine soon if one doesn't fall in my lap for a descent price

Just in case there is any confusion, the red 40 isn't mine. It is just the model for the top pics/test fits. My pics were to show off the tops.

Best,
Abe

That's what I figured but that is a really nice 40. Did you keep notes on the construct on the top? I came across a very good thread on Mud recently where measurements were listed. Just curious as to how they compare

Thanks Martin! I can't wait either. The last production saw some delays, but they should all be shipping next week now finally (with a bit more luck). A few more pics too!

That last pic looks like they were able to get the canvas more black than grey. I like it!

The black & tan tops are actually U.S. sourced fabrics that I shipped over for production. They just don't get those colors over there for some reason. Although I am building some of the grey/black tops as well (like we fit on your truck) since I thought they had a cool look to them. Hopefully at least a few others agree with that opinion when they get here...

Guess I was out of the loop a bit. So on that note, what's the cost?
