Ordered a Badger II today

I had to tell someone, and I knew that my fellow addiced friends here would understand. I have ordered a dark grey (Porsche Anthrecite Sonnenland) Badger II soft top to compliment my soon to be freshly painted Monza Red 90.
I asked Chris if he had any pictures of a Monza red with gray, but he doesn't. I think it shold look pretty good with the red. It came with the grey hard top, and it looked good with it. If anyone has any pictures please post them up.

You won't be disappointed in the quality or finish.

I ordered mine about three weeks ago. Only five weeks to go! I've ordered a black one. All my accessories (chequered plates etc) are black, so didn't want to introduce a third colour. Funnily enough, I did ask Chris what his other four colors might look like on my truck, but he didn't have a red example to go by.

Looks like we're the guinea pigs.

I also got my drop curtain set up from him yesterday. It's really !! Perfect fit, easy to install and very professional looking.

Nice! I was going back and forth between grey and black. Today I just decided what the hell, and ordered grey. I liked the look with the hard top, so I hope it will be a good choice.

I ordered the gray for my red D. Looks pretty good. Black would have been slightly better, but also slightly hotter. I think you'll be satisfied.

I've had my porsche anthracite grey (badger I) for a couple months now and I love it. I went back and forth between the black and the grey, and I decided (with chris's help) that the black top would look even darker than my black rover so I went with the grey.

I know how the waiting game goes...good luck getting through it. It's worth it.

Classic gray. Will send a picture as soon as I resurrect the hard drive that (used to) contain all my photos.

Here are some pics of my badger I in porsche anthracite grey. They look a little weird b/c they were just taken in the parking garage, but they are a fairly good representation of the color (there is only a little bit of washout from the flash in a couple of 'em). I can take better ones later in the daylight if anyone wants to see them. The last pic is of the inside of the top and the gutter kit.



fyi, all those oil stains in the first pic aren't just from my rover....i promise.
