    looks great! This is totally random but do you need another soft top for part or as a backup? I have that same top taking up space in my garage that has a broken zipper on one window and some tears in the seams. I was gonna throw it out after nobody wanted it in the for sale section but Id rather see it go to someone who could use it since they dont make this style anymore. Plus Im not to far away in Buellton Ca.

    Garage fire?! Man, I know about fires around the truck and they suck. I did miss the whiskey part of this, unless that's what caused the fire or this was a whiskey induced paint job. Either way, paint looks good Steve.

    Ha! The Whiskey helped lay the paint down for added finger muscle to spray 4 cans worth lol
    Fire = Woke up to FIRE FIRE about 11pm The garage is smoking... so hot so black so smoky I could not enter through the laundry room door until I put a wet shower towel over my head then in the pitch of night (no power in garage) made my way to the side door of the garage were my hose is and put out what was left of the fire... The fire had depleted nearly all the oxy from inside the garage and snuffed it self out with black smoke. I have a finished sheet rocked garage that saved my house.. K5 sitting right next to my burning bench & all my "stuff" is gone.... sucks but I'm over it now :waytogo:

    WOW!

    Lucky save Burt! What was the source of the fire? Electrical?
