    Uh-oh Doug. We have the wrong canvas. I order a early one on Tuesday along with a bunch of window/door/top rubber and rebuild pieces.

    You guys around next weekend (march 15-17)?    Creig and I were gonna drop in and help you refill the clean shop fridge with beer and then help you drink it.

    I think Creig is pulling the poo-poo vert over for Doug to work on the top.   I’d be flying in around noon on Friday.     Plan for a bbq on Saturday afternoon/evening.   hang some shiny parts on the vert maybe……

    Let us know so that I can book my ticket for another turbulent flight into GJ.

    Oh dang dude, I’m leaving on spring break with my family next Thurs. I’m going to miss you guys. Creig is going to leave the vert at Doug’s shop?

    JJ and and everybody else should be here though.

    Plane tickets are stupid expensive anyway.   $1,100…really?   screw that.   I will fly out in April when spring break prices go away.

    Bump.   Bump.  3 weeks without a post…yikes.

    I am getting pretty excited to see this completed.   I just looked at my emails….I  delivered this to KCW in December, 2015 timeframe.  Wow time flies.   65 degrees in Madison this week.    Gonna be vert weather before you know it.    Thanks, guys.   We still looking at a May completion hopefully?! [fingers crossed].

    Doug has been working on a big crazy interior for 57 chevy. He keep telling me that hes super stressed. After that is done, I hope we can get him to finish this top.

    were about to ramp things back up….  That top not being the right one was a freakin bummer!!     We had some good momentum going there for a few weeks…  😎  Anyway…  Like Franz said… Douglas is almost ours again!!!!  Like Dr Franz… Doug is only one man, and can only get soo much done..  So Sometimes, I end up on his time table..8-)

    How’s Creig doing??  Did he ever bring his rig out here for Douglas love??

    Looking forward to seeing this thing get some love. Top arrive?

    Nope didnt make it out there either, work took me out of town again so couldnt make it happen. DuDu vert is sitting in the upholstery shop as things started today for the top. Gotta say I have a lead on some new material and colours so might take a little longer than expected. If all goes well I should have it back in  a week or so

    Tom, excited yet? Sun is shining in  WI and the snow is melted, just in time for you to be cruising the boulevard searching fah blow

    We’re not 100% happy with the top…

    May need to rip it off and order another one. Doug can explain.

    Boo on wrinkles.   This is a show winner- not a parts getter.  Bawawawawa

    Thats what I said.

    Doug was thinking he could leave it out in the sun and steam it flat…but there is only so much you can do with that.

    Maybe I should talk with somebody tomorrow to see what the deal is.

    Doug is telling me that it got sewn wrong. Like the one piece of material was pushed into the machine as the other was pulled.

    Not sure how to tell our parts supplier that this sucks. Worried that we’ll get the same thing on round 2.

    …Maybe Doug needs to order the canvas and sew it himself.  We could do a custom color then too. Plus, we can’t let Creig act like hes one-up us on a top.
