    Fellas, I gotta tell you I just bought ONE OF THE LAST BLACK KAYLINE TOPS!!!. I received it last night. I got THE LAST top that Cheyenne Pickup parts had (at least that's what they told me). Once I heard the news I had to get one right away since I was planning on doing so later and didn't know if I would ever be able to get one. I called several places but none seemed to have any. I did find a bunch of '76-'91 tops somewhere (I can't remember the name of the place right now), but they are all in white. If any of you are interested, let me know and I will look up the name of the place. If anything, the white ones could be painted with vinyl paint, which is what I was going to do if I couldn't find any black ones. I just had to put up this meaningless post because I was so excited!!! I think we can find more out there if we work together.

    I can't remember the name of the place. I'm at work right now and have the ad in one of my Fourwheeler mags at home. It is the March issue I believe and it is in the end in the ads section. I will look in the mag tonight and post the info as soon as I get it.

    Hey, Brett. Got the info. The name of the company is Quadratec. As of Friday morning, they still had 9 white (and only white!!!) tops available. You can reach them at 1-800-745-5337. I think they are located in Pennsylvania.

    Sorry, Chaz. I'm actually going to continue to call around and search the net for more places that may have them. I will let you know if I come across any and if you are interested, I'll ask them to place it on hold or something.

    i just called every kayline distribitor on the list that are in the u.s. and i found 3 left in pennsylvania...not the fast track but the snap style for a 69-72 5k......they have one black and one white left after my order...it is hoaks 4wd center...1-800-827-1341..total it was 480 w/shipping


    i called a total of 64 places....took me a little over 3 hrs to find em...so no joke...i called everyone on the list that kayline has on their web site...so whats left in pennsylvania is it.
    if anyone happens to have a fast track type i could take off their hands i would like to do so..

    i'm pretty sure that with the fastrac style there will be nothing visable when the hard top is back on, dunno though with the snap style...
    yesterday i called Turner and got their last black fastrac for my '86, said there's a white one left....cost just over 5 bills with shipping.
    i was gonna lift my rig with this $$ but with the Kayline news i opted for the soft top instead.....in time....
    peace.

    Yesterday I ordered the old style top for my 74. I got it from Turner's in Atlanta. They said they had a few left in black. They have the standard 2% tint. Give them a call and see if they still have any 1-800-843-5337. They run around $456.65 plus $20 or so shipping.
