The Big Brown truck dropped off my new Quadratop replacement canvas on Friday. I was too blown from a "fun" week of work that I ended up crashing most of the rest of Fri once I got home. I got up this morning and decided to heck with waiting for it to warm up, it was 48 degrees, and throw that puppy on the Stormcrow.
Packaging was very nicely done. There were a couple punctures in the box but nothing sharp so top was undamaged. I set to removing the old top, rust stained, torn windows, broken zippers, all around grungy.
Here is a shot of the old side windows versus the new. I can actually see out the new windows!!!
And no, the old windows were not tinted....
Only flaw I could find in any of the stitching was the Quadratec label.
The rest looks very nice and tight.
And here is the finished job. It took me around an hour and a half to 2 hours but that is due to the canvas being cold, stiff and not wanting to stretch. Patience got her done.
I think I am going to like the top. We will see how she weathers winter.
Here is a shot of the old top.
While I was putting her on this was going on overhead....
They look to be Turkey Vultures. Some of them had a huge wingspan.
