OK, 3 weeks & nothing. I see deliveries done in 6 days. I live in Los Angeles (not exactly the sticks or off the beaten path) is there a problem Andy? I have emailed and left you a PM.

I'd really like to get my top fixed before I roast alive in the LA sun.

Update! Mystery solved.

I spoke to Andy and he is on a well deserved vacation!

My nuts ship out next week.

Apologies on the confusion.

Hmm, purchased on the 20th of June from Andy. Received PayPal receipt only. Emails go unanswered as well as phone calls, should I be concerned? I am simply trying to confirm order receipt and whether or not it ever shipped out.

Update! It appears I've missed one call from Denmark and another I could not hear, I'll take that as a good sign and keep my eyes on the mail!

I installed both kits and what difference. I can fold the top back and forward by myself. They look great and are very easy to install. I used a Dremel high speed cutting wheel to cut the ends off the rivets as the drilling just looked to hard. It worked perfect and did a very clean job. Both tops done and work perfect.
Thank, GB

just got mines Smile

instead of drilling old ones I used a dremel grind. Using a vice grip is a must.

very happy with the result!

My non descript brown envelope from Duckshouse arrived today!! 11 days, including the weekend.... Not too shabby from Denmark! Very Happy

The bits look Very well made, and you just can't beat Stainless Steel!!

I'll share more when I take the time to install them...
Someone asked about doing it with the canvas in place... I'll try that route and see how it goes! (I don't foresee any issues with it, but will give it a go!)

Thank you Andy, for a quality product at a Very fare price!! Wink
I look forward to more of your phenomenal products in future! Very Happy

Placed my order with K-Mann 20 minutes ago for 2 of the top kits and it is already packed and on its way. Talk about service. Now will have something to do this winter if it ever gets here and we don't burn down. Sure are having some bad fires here in the High Desert. Looks like cruise night will be off for tomorrow.
