So you don't think this in yellow would look good? Anyone got some photoshop skills and want to throw yellow on this truck?

Got this from a post of a guy that is selling his GK half-cab. Had it been an FDS it would have been gone.

This is primitive, but you get the idea.

I didn't say it was a good job.

There is an AA yellow truck in the SF Bay Area that has a tan top on it. I have seen it a few times on the road. It looks really good. I really like tan tops but more so on a white truck than a yellow. Just my two cents but I think black is better on a yellow truck but again, the tan top I have seen on the yellow did look really good. I even think I saw the tan top,yellow truck on this website and he only had a few posts but there was a pic in his avatar(?)

To me!
So to make this thread somewhat useful. What am I losing between going with the FDS v. the gutter kit? I am looking to use this during the spring and summer months and then throw the hard top back on in the winter.

The main problem is that the gutter kit costs an extra 600 or something and is not included, so presto, 800 dollar top becomes 1400 top. A gutter kit is actually pretty nice. I used to run one before I converted to station wagon form. You'll wish the hardtop had a gutter kit.

Ya being cheap is the only reason I want the FDS over GK is the cost. I wasnt really sure if there was a difference as far as water or wind leakage between either. Also I would like to be able to pull the top off on a nice day and cruise around. With the gutter, it looks like you pull everything off and then still have to undo all the gutter kit mess.

reserecting this since i'm going to get one at some point real soon..
So with the Gutter Kit you can leave it on when you pull the top off correct. (with a Badger II)

the FG Hardtop really needs a gutter kit -

if the badger II works as good as everyone says - i doupt i will put it back on in the winter.

Yes, many people leave the gutter kit on with the top removed. IMO it looks better/doesn't stand out so much when you paint/powdercoat it black.

Anyone have a pic of an Arles Blue with a tan or beige top? I am thinking about getting rid of my RN for a Badger. Just wondering how it would look.
