    Here's a pic of the quick trim job i did just before the Easter run in Oregon. I left the inner fender intact and just bent it back and tack welded it to the fender. (temporary measure...)

    Looks nice

    The top is only 6 months old but is the older style Kayline. Looks like I bought it at the right time, namely when they were still available.

    Back in September last year when I ordered mine I figured it'd be a couple of days, you know pull it off the shelf and ship. How hard could it be? After 4 1/2 weeks I emailed Kayline and was told they don't build a top they don't have an order for...so mine was being built. So unless an unknown shop out there ordered and recieved a bunch of older Kayline tops I highly doubt they're available anymore.[​IMG]
