Default Hardtop Brackets

Hey Travis, how about it?

I've been looking around for hard top brackets online for an NB for a decent price. Not many out there. Ever consider making these?

I don't think it'd be too hard for you to make, and with every other person getting a hardtop you might have a decent market for them.

I'll check into it and see. I guess I need a hardtop. How expensive are they? Any unobtanium necessary?

I could probably do them for 40 or so, but I'd need all the dimensions.

No point in doing it. Its going to cost atleast 30 for me to get a manufacturing house to do them, and I'll have to order 25. By the time I sell them I could the money in an 18 month CD and make more.
