    stopped by upholstery shop this morning, got on the list for new top. struggled between glass window and plastic, in the end I went with plastic. 2 weeks out on work so now I gotta wait... arg.

    2nd alignment done, TIRES DON'T RUB... YEAH! picked it up and drove it maybe 15 miles today... had a squeak think I got that, has a rattle in the front end I need to track that down, but otherwise seems to be doing OK, so far so good. May take a longer trip tomorrow up the interstate to calibrate the speedo and do a little more shake down.

    top is scheduled for Oct 15 or so, after that I can finish adjusting the windows, then get the door panels installed.

    upholstery shop called this morning, top should be in 1st of next week, I am on their list for probably Thursday to get it installed... woohoo... once that is done I can final align the windows, then get the door panels on. still a couple odds and ends, and a couple gremlins I am chasing down. electronic speedo is acting wonky and won't calibrate, not sure whats up with that yet. Fitech is still learning and hopefully sorting itself out. got a clunk in the right side front end need to try to chase that down. otherwise seems to be doing fairly well.

    What brand of top did you get? My experience is Robbins brand is top dog.

    i think it may be Robbins but not 100% sure. the upholstery shop ordered it. He said what brand he likes to use but I can't remember. I know it's not Kee. I had him order it in the sun cloth instead of the stock vinyl.

    upholstery shop called, they got the top done early. very pleased with it. I love the cloth instead of the vinyl. they were also able to fix a couple issues I had with my back seat cover that apparently the first shop messed up. the left rear window regulator decided to crap out today so now I need to pull back seat back out and replace that... arg.

    That looks great.

    I need to get my top done soon. It's pretty bad, but I never put it up anyway.

    I really like the looks of cloth tops over vinyl!
