    I am looking for a supplier that I can buy mainly the track and lip stuff from so I can design and build my own soft top. I can get the vinyl or canvas from my cousin's marine supply, but they do not carry the track and lip materials. If anyone has a contact or know's of a website where I can go let me know. Thanks, Pete.

    Have you contacted any tarp/tent suppliers? I think our local one can get those things.

    If you can get me a number or web address that would be great. I have looked everywhere, got a couple of suppliers to call and ask yet.

    Hey yunit, I tried to buy direct from kayline just to see what they would say and as you can guess the answer was no...But they did tell me I could order replacement parts. Startin' to make sense now,if you know someone with a top you could know the parts # and get the stuff that you couldn't fabricate yourself.Or if you know what you need then you can just go to ther web sight and order.A buddy and I are ordering new window tracks so we can make are own bikini tops....YeeeeHaaaaa later...

    <font color=blue>Check S&B Car Tops on River st in Hackensack. They make OE replacement tops and custom tops for street rods. I'm sure they can custom make you a soft top.</font color=blue>
