We had to Stop the installation! top has many seam problems! Plus the hidem binding was all kinked
Need replacement top immediately to make the due date for completion
Customer had a 2nd top that alknock sent that was the real deal not some top that was returned by another shop as a blem!
We removed the scag top and reinstalled the new assembly that looks really nice!
