    opinions on this top?

    it makes sense to me, where i live in VA, its cold for 6months and then nice for 6months. if i could take the heavy hard top off for 6months and roll around with that thing on when its nice out (it would be off when its sunny, on when its rainy), then in winter put hard top back on. does that sound like a decent idea?

    is it worth $450?

    I was looking at those too and decided it was a bit pricey, so i took a copy of all the jpegs to my local auto upholstery shop and they were able to duplicate it well for about 300. I also had them cut out the rear window section in the shape of a chevy bowtie. wow, what a looker! too bad no pics, sorry. I will post some in 3 months when I get back stateside though. Good luck.

    the soft-tops one is only $369 so its not that bad. I am building an aluminum frame to bolt to stock location and haveing a cover mmade to stretch over it. Yeah some company use to make one with the bowtie window but I couldnt find it anymore. I am doing the same idea though. Does your window unzip and come out?

    ok maybe i was thinking about something else? i could have sworn it was more than that. maybe shipping? i dont recall. anyways, no it doesn't unzip, but that would be pretty neat idea too. And fairly easy, I would assume. I live in NC so the top can be off quite a bit almost all year round.
