    I finally got around to installing the Fastrac top I bought a few weeks ago.Let me tell you that whn they say it needs to be 72 deg.to install they mean it.I got all the mounting hardware on earlier and was getting the soft top on and the afternoon cool air kinda made things tough.While one man can do the install by himself I dont think its best cause I am pooped lol.Heres a few pics of the top installed Well almost,I got to install the tailgate brackets tomorrow cause I ran out of stainless screws. I dont think the black on the white /blue looks as bad as I thought it would what do you guys think?

    Looks pretty sharp to me. I am sure that black top will help keep it a little warmer this winter in there. Dealing with any kind of fabric top in the cold is a PITA. I am just glad I don't have to fool with hummer soft tops anymore.

    I got my order refunded from them today. Wait and see if they get stuff worked out and re-order or go to plan B

    hehe best part of the entire deal was I bought it from member on here which helped him out plus I got it for $255 and didnt have to wait 6-8 weeks for delivery and when I say it was like brand new that is a understatment.Only thing missing were the instructions and I downloaded themoff STC's website.:D
