    Greetings all.. I had bought a used black Kayline top from someowne here (sorry don't remember who) last year, had a couple of new zippers put in the back and finally got around to strapping it on this last weekend (bought a new house, had to sell the old house, no place to put the hardtop yadda yadda yadda). So, been top down crusing for the first time in over a year and a half this week --- its been cool - not that easy seeing how its been in the 90's here in Texas by mid-afternoon.

    Where did you get the zippers replaced at? Mine are shot too. I was thinking about going to a marine shop.

    I had redone the hardtop (new seals paint) - so its sitting on a stand ready to go back on at some point.

    I just took the top to an auto upholstery shop - they used the biggest zippers that would fit - ran me about $60.00.

    Had to put the top up for today's (Thursday) drive home -little more rain for central Texas.

    Next project is the door guts and window channel things --- oh yea and sooner or later I'm going to lay on another coat of baby poop yellow.
