    OK, FWP had one in the gallery, thanks, Grim I used that pic of Dollar for the 73-75 Fasttrac, the one on specialty's site is the fasttrac and not the snap top though, but all is good.

    Grim, Is yours the denim texture? I'm wondering which one will be easier to clean. Do you know if they are both just as strong also? (denim v.s. crush) thanks!

    Steve,

    If you need pics of the '76-'91 Fast Trac, I would be glad to take good photos of mine. Its much cooler to use non-stock K5's - in my opinion /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Email me if I need to take a pic.

    Yep, I was going to use some of them but black is really hard to see.

    They are equaly strong. They have a heavy fabric backing. Only the white and black are in the Crush texture. The rest of the colors are all in the Denim texture. The Denim has more of a mat look when you put a conditioner on it and the crush will be more of a gloss look.
    As for cleaning....they both have nooks and cranny's that dirt will get into. Best thing to do is keep them treated and they are less likly to stain. The dirt will rinse off easier. Tops do take maintance to keep up and you need to make sure to clean them regularly to make them last as long as possible
    My convertible Pontiac has the same Denim texture top and I have a bud with the Crush top on His K5 both in black. I really think the denim is a much nicer looking fabric.

    Here's a link to a couple of photo's of my 73 with the Kayline Snap Version. I am presently attempting to install a Fast Trac version and I am having major difficulties. Is anyone else on the site having any trouble? Or is anyone presently dealing with STC. If anyone would like to know my experiences, please feel free to e-mail me.

    Hey guys anybody likes the best top soft top, I always hear people talking about kayline, is that a better fabric than best top or better price or what? I paid $560 for mine and I love it it's really easy to put on and it looks pretty sturdy, check out my pics.

    Bows not fitting correctly? I'm working with STC right now about this.
