Has Anybody Got the New Quaratop Replacement Soft Top

quadratop

Not as tight as a best top and so far my only complaint is the material stretched too much causing rain water to accumulate behind the windshield. To prevent this I added an additional bow made from PVC.

I've got the spice quadratop. It's pretty good. Like Cody said it is pretty thin, and it tends to flop and slap pretty bad when you're going down the highway. But for the price it does the job and looks pretty good.

Thanks for the responses and the PVC extra ribbing is a good idea too. How did you attach it?

So the Quadratop is not a total Quadraflop.....

I'll get some picks. I believe it's a two inch PVC cross, cut in half. (2) two inch to 1/2 inch reducers and a piece of 1/2 inch PVC pipe. Cost was less than $10. There is a write up by another member around here somewhere.

I bought a new Quadratec top about 4 years ago. It's been a very good top so far. As far as the flapping in the wind goes, I think any top is going to do that to some degree. They get looser in the summer and tighter in the winter. I do like the idea of a pvc tube support for it though. I get more pooling with my bikini top than I do with my soft top.

My pic above was the first spring rain on a new top. About 5 gallons, I wasn't happy but other than adding the the extra bow I haven't had any other complaints.
