Will do . Mods delete this and I'll repost.
I did you one better and moved your post to it's own thread to save you the time.
Kayline --also on page 4 then post #72
That red one is sharp. Wish the few manufactures that still make tops for early CJ5's would offer more colors.
I have never seen that Kayline brochure. My '64 Tux was originally the same white w/red top as pictured, but that is not the same top mine came with. Mine did not have the four buckles that fastened to the tailgate. Mine used conventional snaps. Also, mine had a more crude bent flat "paddle" handle that was zinc plated, not the cast chrome version in the brochure.
It would be great if one (or the only) manufacturer would make white, red, and blue (even green) tops as were originally produced.
1966 (stated) Jeep door sign says, Armored Banking Service--
I have a metal top that was on a 1955 CJ5 with not visible manufacturing plates. I have torn it down to treat the rust and am in the process of reassembly, but I am missing the lower door window track. I am wondering if anyone has an idea of where I could get a replacement or of a good substitution? In the picture, you can see the window regulator has a tab that somehow connects to that lower track. Any information will be appreciated. The other picture is the outer door skin. My picture of the top was too large to post.
More photos from this 1946 CJ-2A top here.
