    Does anybody have a Skyler Soft Top like the one in the product review? I really like the look of that one and would like to buy one before next summer. It says they are out of business now. Does anybody know where I can get one?

    Give it time. Specialty Top Co. (STC) is moving to TX. They claim to be back up and running in the not too distant future from what I understand.

    And welcome aboard.:D

    I've checked ebay. I dont want just any top though. I want the low profile top that you have to fold the back seat down to use. I like that design better. Mainly cause they say you do not have to drill holes.

    I got one of the tonneau style sklyer soft tops. I got it off ebay for $120 i think. Didn't come with the mounting supports (it was supposed to but whatever) so I got an old hardtop for free, cut out all but about an inch all the way around and put velcro on that. It would have worked perfect but i didnt want to take the seat out and being a 77 the seat doesnt fold up. Had to settle for close to perfect. Doesnt leak so I'm happy. pics: http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2512119/3
