G'day matey, all i can say that is outstanding and far from my capabilities unless i had the fund's that is, i also would be worried about idiot's on the road that seem to want my part of the road :shrug: .

In this day and age people seem to think they have a right to borrow thing's like that on a permenent basis :shrug: , i guess that's just me :laugh: .

Catch you later. R-Rose :tiphat: .

The folks at whites automotive in framingham Massachusetts are doing the work and Peter is just killing it. He said the top was tougher than any convertible that he ever worked on but he did a great job getting it to fit tight. Has been a long process, but will be ready for my retirement and repatriation to the USA, so we are excited. As to whether others on the road will respect it, I can't really say, but the truck was made to travel and will be great to get it out again.

Very nice! The canvas is indeed hard to fit correctly. There's a trick to it but I'm darned if I know what it is.

I hope you have lots of great adventures in it!
