    I remember kayline they seem to be no more and I saw STc corp who uses kaylines patterns. SKYlers design though is more what im looking for. If they cannot do it i'll make one myself and have my upholster buddy build it.

    I emailed them (specialty) a while ago because I wanted the ease of the fast trac top, but I liked the sloped back of the snap top, but, alas, it is not possible to get the sloped back with a fast trac. At least not directly from them.
