Ferretkona, nice whole Thing, with nice wheels and nice top. Where did you buy your top ? Is it a TTS standard vinyl one or is it made of other superior fabric ?

Thanks, still needs work of course.
The top is made of StaFast, same fabric used in all the modern convertibles. I bought it at http://www.convertiblespecialties.com/. Nice folk in Long Beach a few miles away.
