    I guess this question is more for Steve. What is the difference in ordering a soft top from CK5 as opposed to ordering from Can-Back? CK5's price is about $30.00 cheaper, if I'm not mistaken. The price that Can-Back quotes for a '79 black top w/the side windows and roll-up kit is $1055.00 vs the CK5 price of $1025.00. Anyone know?

    The BIG difference is that if you order if from CK5, then it helps Steve pay for this website! Order it from CK5!!!!! [​IMG]

    Yeah, I know, but I was talking money-wise. I do want to order from CK5.

    Same top, but cheaper, and ordering through CK5 nets you an additional 35 horsepower[​IMG]!

    Is the turn-around time the same?

    I would assume so - you'd have to check with Steve on that one

    When you order it through me it is cheaper, that is the only thing I do (CK5 discount), Can-back gets emailed as well as me and the turn around time would be the same if you ordered it through them, they build it and ship it to you, I'm not involved in the building or shipping at all. Go for it!!

    Cool, after you order I would give Can-back a call and confirm everything, and tell them you are ordering from CK5.
