    Made true progress these last two evenings after a lot of illness and motivation challenges.

    This is the soft slant back cover for Jeffy777 who is my first beta tester. Still needs the top hold down strip for the Velcro attachment and skirting at the base of the vinyl window, as well as the interior Velcro straps and the webbing for the sides, back and window. But it’s coming along. All this sewing was done this evening including the zippers. I like having a true industrial sewing machine!!

    Yours is next! Frame is 90% and I only need to obtain more clear vinyl to have all materials. My previous source closed. Have to take a drive to nearest next.

    Well, I think itís done.

    Have to type up the assembly instructions and other advice, then get some heavy plastic sheeting for wrapping.

    Here she is, draped over my ride. Iím not sure about the side straps, though I placed them using measurements from my rig. Time will tell.

    Jeff, please PM me your address.

    I used the last of the sunlight and warm weather today to test fit the Mk1 frame and tweaked soft top design to my ride .

    The new variant fit very well, better that the prototype, which was my goal of course. Hopefully tonight I can type up the assembly instructions and FAQs list.

    Then I need to get to FedEx!

    All bagged up this evening and ready to go to FedEx. Should be tomorrow, as it's bedtime tonight.

    I'm looking forward to this almost as much as Jeffy777!
