    I heard several people (including myself) saying they couldn't wait until the Fasttrac was available so they could rush out and order it. Realistically speaking, has anyone actually ordered one? I'm hoping to get one within the next few months but who knows what else will come up. $650 is about $651 more than I have right now. I'm just wondering about quality, fit, ease of use, etc...

    I oredred one August first. I received it Aug 27. I took me 2 days to install after work. It looks great, I have left it up because it has been raining cats and dogs in New Orleans since I have had it. No leaks, but the is a little gap where the window rolls up. Basically I am very pleased with workmanship and fit. The area where the top fits into the fastrac toward the back of the bedrails is a little loose, but there is a spot for extendting trhe back bow that I think will fix that problem.

    "but the is a little gap where the window rolls up"

    NOblazer,

    was the gap between the window due to quality or alignment of the window??

    To be quite honest It could be a design problem. There is a statement in the instructions that says door and window alignment may be flawed due to the blazer being missaligned. The gap is were the "window frame" that they send with kit meets the window, There is a part that runs from the windshield over the door, then ther is an extention to the first bow. Where the door meets the frame you drill a hole and insert the vertical section of the window frame. The vert and the hort meet and are connected with a wing nut. As you can see there are a lot of varibles ther that could have me mis aligned, but the gap is about a 1/2" in the corner of the window on both sides where it should meet the corner of the frame. I will try to post pics, but my camera is MIA. I looks really good, I think you wil be very pleased.
