It is the best stuff made for a top of any type. It was great to talk to you today. Yes, get Nick and come on out. Liz and I would really enjoy a visit!

As I've said, if you're willing to just cut the panels (out of something cheap), I would pay for the materials, your time putting this together, and shipping, so I can make one here. I totally understand if you can't, but excellent job on this one.
Let me see if I can remake my wood patterns. Then if and a huge maybe I could trace everything out on kraft paper. The biggest issue would be all the detail that you need to know. Stuff I copied from eightydueces top. If you don't have a top to copy, than I would need to inform you of what to do. It would involve a lot of notes all over the patterns. It would take quite a while to prepare. No promises but give me a week or so. If I feel that you could make a top from my plans I will PM you for an address. No promises... Mkay?

I'll take a maybe, especially if it gets me closer to a top.

If not, I've got a coupon for Joann's, and I'll male my trial tops from canvas before moving up to the fancy stuff...Lol

LOL YES! that's my name. Weird. How did you know that? Absolutely yes I'll take one for that price. I'm willing to wait until you need ... my truck is still being "rebuilt" and is out of town. But I'll definitely take one now or any other time. If I had my wishes I'd really like one with the rollup rear like I have on my truck now. And pay more for it. But I'll take what I can get!!

Well I guess the cat is out of the bag... I am making a top for Teking. I guess this means I am making them now. Price undetermined so far.
I suspect New Life might be quicker. I will do my best.

Well, so far, I've struck out on hearing from anyone that makes anything for this truck. OD Cloth still makes tops, but they only make one color, and no variables. I've called and emailed New Life with no response. There's no rush, but if you decide you want to make more, I would gladly pay for your work.

I agree with teking--a zip out or roll up window would be a nice feature, but not a deal-breaker.

Well if you can wait than that would be good. Even if it takes me forever, you will still hear from me. I have had a few parts requests come in after a long dead spell. I will work on getting more material. I can't add custom features yet. I am still trying to master the construction and what to do in what order.
Later I could probably spend some time on things like the roll up back.
I'm not going anywhere. So hang tight.
