The last 5 kits I shipped to us has been very delayed. I am not sure why.

I ship untracked to make the kit cheap. And I only lost 1 kit in the mail. Please be patient.

Still waiting for my order to arrive. No follow up from vendor.

How long am I supposed to be patient?

Parts arrived today in a plain brown envelope. No postage no nothing. Must be some secret shipping method.

Its a wacum cleaner bag reinforced by packing tape. I try to be green and recycle when I can.

Shipping is called mobile stamp.
You buy it online and write the secret code on the envelope.

Maybe it will come to USA some day Smile

Glad it arrived.

I have sold over 150 of these kits and only lost 1 kit in the mail. So I don't complain over postal services.

I installed these rivets on my top frame - good quality parts, no problem there.

It was, however, quite a bit of work to drill out the old pivots/rivets. More work than I expected, but the results are worth it.

So less than a month to receive? Doesn't seem terrible, considering this is low cost postage from Eruope.....

Andy, I just placed my order today! I'm excited at the prospect of dropping my top by myself! My 13 year old TTS reinforced top frame is Stiff to operate!

I ground the small side of the rivets then used a punch to knock the rivets out. No drilling needed.

Interesting product, not something I really need, but I plan on ordering a set due to the peer pressure. Gotta keep up with the Domecks, as they say. Cliff W. in western Pa.

What are the reviews of these after they have been installed? Do they make it much easier to raise and lower the top?

If a guy is That impatient, or in That much of a hurry, then it makes sense....
But it's $20 more, given the exchange rate right now......

I don't "need" these, so I'm buying direct from Andy and will wait for my non descript envelope to arrive, and save the $$!!!!
