    Well, For the first time in months, we got rain here in Oklahoma. Driving in to work this morning I noticed NO leaks in the top. Again, I can't say enough about this top, it's working like a CHAMP!!!

    I know alot of you have been curious as to what these tops look like, well, here you go. I installed mine over the weekend with virtually no problems. This top is similar to Kaylines old style top. I'm VERY please with the top and noticed virtually NO added noise going down the road. I hear the caged nuts more than anything. Anywho, here ya go.

    Bestop doesn't sell direct, you can buy em from about any offroad shop or 4 wheel parts sells em. It's all pretty much up to you.

    The snaps are in the body. I think they run about $550 or so from 4wheelparts. If you're squeemish about drilling holes into the body, this may not be the ticket for you, I didn't really have a problem with it and to be honest, they really aren't that noticeible.

    That looks very sharp, Kyle. By the way, I wanted to let you know that I'm still waiting for the guys at MAACO to get the paint codes so I can send to you. They seemed to have "lost" them but they assured me they would give them to me this week. I'll let you know as soon as I get them. Thanks for your patience.

    I don't have any currently, but I can take some if you like. It may take a week or so, I don't have a digital camera. Let me know, send me a PM if you want.

    Right hand driver '74 = [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG], Do you have pics?
